Gallan Mor is named after the monolithic standing stone that has stood in this place for over 3,500 years and where now rests the Bourke's lovely boutique B&B, sitting up on a small hill overlooking Dunmanus bay and offering the visitor heartbreak views out over the water and across to the Mizen.
The luxurious rooms in Gallan Mor come with hand-made mahogany four poster king size beds and walk in power showers. Breakfast is a feast with home-made white bread and soda bread, home-made granola, herbal teas from the garden, locally sourced eggs, home-made jams and compotes and honey from their bees. Speciality of the house is the "Dutch Baby', Try it and see.
It goes without saying that Gallan Mor is a perfect base for touring the glorious Sheep’s Head peninsula – this is one of the best peninsulas for hiking anywhere in Ireland – and wider West Cork. There is also a lovely self-catering cottage for rent to couples or groups, which is very comfortable, and perfect for a longer break.
