Dunowen: Cork

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

Booked Dunowen for our combined birthdays along with 12 other friends and all I can say is WOW !! Everything was perfect. Kela and Stephen served dinner on the Friday evening and it was amazing. Excellent food. Both made sure our weekend went without a hiccup and everything was perfect. We booked a meal for the Saturday evening nearby and we were actually sorry we didn’t stay in the house again for dinner that night!! All in all a 5 star weekend and would definitely recommend a visit. Some lovely history associated with house also and a beautiful part of the world. Well done Kela and Stephen.

Beautiful house and wonderful hosts for a Hen Weekend
I recently booked Dunowen house for a hen weekend and I would highly recommend it. Kela (proprietor) was so helpful to us prior to arrival, providing advice on local activities and amenities and making sure we had everything we needed once we arrived. Kela made us feel very welcome, showing us around the house, she baked us fresh scones on arrival which was a lovely touch. The house is beautifully decorated and comes with everything you could need. We had dinner cooked for us in the house on the Saturday evening and the food was delicious. The house is situated close to Clonakilty and Kela helped us arrange a mini bus to Clonakilty for the Saturday night which was great. I couldn't recommend the house or hosts enough. Thanks so much for such a great weekend, we can’t wait to visit again.

"Fantastic hen weekend"
Just back from the most amazing weekend in Dunowen house ! I arrived at the house with no idea where we were staying for my hen weekend....but my god I couldn’t have imagined anywhere as amazing as this house!The house inside is spacious and furnished with such thought to it and attention to detail. We had a meal on the Saturday night which was 5 star and then headed into clonakilty by mini bus! Overall couldn’t recommend this beautiful venue enough for any occasion !!

A wonderful experience
Even before you step inside Dunowen house, its hard not to be blown away by the idyllic surroundings and peaceful atmosphere. The house is situated perfectly.
I had booked Dunowen for my sisters hen and upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely Kela who showed us around and made us feel very much at home. The house is beautifully decorated with some of us quoting 'interior goals'! There is also a sense of fun from the quirky artwork to the music memorabilia. Kela and Stephen prepared a beautiful dinner on the Saturday night with the desserts being a very big hit!
We had a fabulous weekend and have taken away some great memories. I would highly recommend!!

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!
