Testimonials

" The food is just superb, all dishes were excellent, fabulous special touches of edible flowers, local produce, really cooked with love. The location is very special, on the edge of Gougane Barra Forest Park. It is within walking distance of the hotel, so you don't have to deal with a long drive to walking destinations. "

About Us

Our fifth-generation family-run hotel is well known for its warm welcome, great team from all over the world, wholesome food, personal service and welcoming atmosphere.

Tucked away in a romantic, glaciated valley in the south-west of Ireland and surrounded by mountains, our hotel is situated in a breath-taking position on the edge of Gougane Barra lake, right next to St Finbarr's island oratory.

We open seasonally from April to end of October each year. 

In line with government restrictions, we are excited to welcome our first guests this year on Wednesday the 2nd of June.

Take out food is available in May on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays

Book a stay and come and make our home yours in Gougane Barra this season.
