Dunowen House offers luxury bed and breakfast accommodation at certain times of the year, when not rented out on a self-catering basis.

Set in four acres of landscaped gardens, Dunowen House has a private orchard and grows organic vegetable and fruits within an exclusive walled garden. There are also two enclosed ponds that regularly are home to wild ducks.

Surrounded by mature pine and sycamore trees the garden conjures images of a scene from the film "Secret Garden"

Guests can stay in one of the six suites and enjoy the very best of local seasonal produce, home baking and tempting breakfast options.

Owners and hosts Kela and Stephen offer the warmest of welcomes, with the tastiest homemade baking and gourmet breakfasts.

There are five spacious bedrooms; cocoon yourself in the most comfortable beds of snowy white linen, relax in the extra large baths featuring handmade Irish toiletries or just snuggle up with a good book in front of the wood-burning stove or open fires.

Home baking, organic produce and the very best in West Cork, artisan specialties and seafood feature highly on our breakfast menu.

With the “Wild Atlantic Way” on our doorstep, Dunowen House makes the perfect venue to explore the stunning coastline and scenery of West Cork

Second visit to Dunowen - this time for my eldest son's 30th birthday celebration. I have four sons who all came on this holiday together with partners, extended family and friends. We visited Clonakilty many times when the boys were small but they all agreed that this was the very best holiday - it was special - we had a fabulous week and did not want to leave. Kela and Stephen (our lovely hosts) recommended two fabulous restaurants...Deasey's in Clonakilty and Pilgrims in Roscarberry - both meals were excellent. The house was as I remembered from my first visit...an amazing property with a great story to tell. I will be back. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Thanks Kela and Stephen xx

“Exactly what I wanted” Had such a great time. So peaceful and relaxing. Our hosts Kela and Stephen prepared a delicious meal our first night which really took the weight off. The location is perfect to the Atlantic way and nearby Clonakilty is a charmer of a town. Will do this again!

“Perfect!” Dunowen house far exceeded our expectations. The house had every amenity we could have wanted and more. A total of 11 of us stayed at the house for a week. We enjoyed the beautiful location and took advantage of many of the possible day trips that are easily accessible from Dunowen. We had our wedding at the house which proved to be a perfect fit. It was an intimate wedding with just the 11 of us total. Kela catered the event and even was able to produce a vegan menu which we requested. The food was absolutely amazing. I think she may have turned some of our family members vegan :) Throughout the entire process Kela was very helpful. She arranged a van to take us into Clonakilty in the evening, answered many of our question about local vendors and suggested various good restaurant. I cannot give Kela enough praise for providing such a wonderful home and experience. We all hope to be back soon!
