Gougane Barra Hotel

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Neil and Katy’s gorgeous country hotel is a special oasis, in the most special place.
Samuel Johnson once wrote that “The finest landscape in the world is improved by a good inn in the foreground.” Dr Johnson had to be thinking about Neil and Katy Lucey’s Gougane Barra Hotel. Set amidst the most stunning landscape of West Cork, adjacent to a small lake, across from an ancient church, close to the hills, embraced by a wood, the landscape is enticing. But what makes Gougane Barra special is the hotel. It gives focus and culture to the hills and woods and water. It provides the perfect human counterpoint to the flush of nature. And thanks to Neil and Katy’s gentle hospitality, the hotel is every bit as elemental and organic as the landscape. There is nowhere else like it.
