"Absolutely amazing!"
We needed to find a spot to host a small family reunion on our recent trip to Ireland and Dunowen House proved to be the perfect choice. The house itself is stunning - beautifully designed but comfortable enough for little ones to run around in.
The surrounding countryside is lovely, with the beach right on the doorstep.
Kela and Stephen are excellent hosts, offering loads of suggestions and helpful hints, even providing us beach towels so our crazy Canadian family could take a January dip in the sea!
We were also happy we chose to have Kela and Stephen cater a 3 course birthday dinner for us onsite. The food was awesome, more than we could eat, with lots of choices for our vegan and vegetarians.
I really can’t say enough about the house, the area and our hosts at Dunowen. (If only I could give them more than 5 stars).
It really made our trip to Ireland magical - we’ll be back!

"True 5 Star"
We had a magnificent four nights here bringing in the New Year.
West Cork is a special place and Dunowen House is an exceptional property nestling in a beautiful location, beaches and walks all around.
The House was warm and cosy and was presented to us in an impeccable state, no detail overlooked. The photographs represent the house accurately.
Kela and Stephen are a warm and accommodating couple, always ready to facilitate and advise. There is a super local pub with a restaurant one minute from the house which is a good spot to start off an evening.
West Cork is famous for it fresh produce from the land and sea and I can not think of a better spot to enjoy it and indulge.
We highly recommend Dunowen House and we will return.
Thank you very much Kela and Stephen for a magnificent venue, we loved it.

"50th Birthday Party Weekend"
We had the most fantastic weekend at Dunowen house for my birthday. The rooms and bedrooms in the house are beautifully decorated and everyone had a lovely stay. All couples we able to relax in double rooms and we also rented out The Lodge on the grounds also, perfect for a mixture of friend/couples. There are two sitting rooms which work out great for a choice of quiet or party. An amazing venue !

"Amazing Hen Weekend!!!"
We recently had my friends hen party at Dunowen House. We had the most amazing weekend!
From the minute we arrived it was more than we ever could have imagined! Keela even had fresh scones and jam for us.
The house itself is stunning and it's very clear the owners have an eye for interiors. Each room is very different and has its own charm. The bathrooms are done to such a high standard! I think all 20 of our guests had to have showers and baths just to try them out!!
We were so lucky to have fabulous sunny weather and were able to sit out on the terrace for breakfast. We also walked down to the cove which is right by the house.

Keela and Steven cooked for us on the Saturday night. Again our meal was so beautiful. The presentation was as good if not better than any restaurant. Service was excellent and they had the timing done perfectly. All of our guests have been talking about it since.
Keela gave us the number of a local taxi company who collected us the Saturday night . We went to Casey's bar which was brilliant, we didn't stop dancing all night!

We had the best weekend at Dunowen and I would highly recommend it for a luxurious hen. You will not be disappointed!! Our hen was absolutely blown away by the property and loved every minute of it. Hopefully we will return to Dunowen again in the future!
