"Perfect luxury holiday house for large family group" Dunowen is a beautiful house. It has been lovingly restored with great attention to detail while still retaining a welcoming feel. It has everything you need for a family stay and was spotless on arrival. We were a group of 17 with a mix from toddlers to grandparents. There is great space in the house with a large kitchen for preparing meals, good play and entertaining areas and a lovely mix of bedrooms. The outside terrace is gorgeous for eating out on and we were lucky enough to have the sun for most of our stay. It is close to a little stony cove for swimming, Redstrand beach for sunny days, Inchydoney for surfing or spa and only 15 minutes to Clonakilty town. The Ardfield local pub is charming and has a great restaurant. Kela and Stephen were professional and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend.

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.

"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!!
