About Us


We are Neil and Katy Lucey, operating a small family-run, seasonal, hotel overlooking Gougane Barra Lake and St. Finbarr’s Oratory, situated in one of the most romantic valleys in the South West of Ireland. Each year we open from April to late October welcoming a great mix of guests, from walkers to cyclists, story tellers to historians, singers and jokers, and all in between. A favourite place for visitors, we are lucky that so many of our guests come back again and again and have become our friends. 

Our intimate hotel is renowned for its warm welcome, real food and relaxed atmosphere.

‘We just like what we do and aim to look after you as best as we can’
