Gougane Barra Hotel
Some people refer to Neil and Katy’s Gougane Barra Hotel as being off the beaten track. That isn’t the half of it.
Sure, it’s not far from the Pass of Keamanagh, and Ballingeary is off in the distance. But when you enter into the Forest Park, and see the church at the lake, and see the hotel nestling snugly amidst the trees and hills, then you realise that you have, indeed, crossed over into another dimension. And, in this dimension, Mr and Mrs Lucey are the king and queen of hospitality, their charming small hotel a testament to the most endearing, decent, most Irish manner of hospitality you have ever enjoyed. There is nowhere like the Gougane Barra Hotel.
