“wonderful getaway with the family”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Really loved this house, great for a group rental! and was perfect for us ( a large extended family) was the perfect inbetween hotel and house, we had breakfast made both mornings and had a fantastic dinner on teh saturday night. If you are going it is worth getting Kela to do a dinner, she is a really great cook! the chocolate cake was to die for!! the house is right near the beach so we did a few walks along the beach which was lovely.

Looking forward to going back here in the future!

“Fantastic Weekend”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My family & I spent a memorable long w/e @ Dunowen Hse. in Sept. The visit was made all the more memorable by Kela & Steven who made us feel so at home in their wonderful hse. Each room is more awesome than the next - beautifully & tastefully decorated. Kela catered for us on one night - food was superb. The weather was especially kind to us & made exploration of the West Cork area so enjoyable. Thank you Kela & Steven. We certainly hope to be back.

“Perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed by all”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A group of 17 girls stayed in Dunowen House for a Hen Party. Kela welcomed us with fresh scones and made a beautiful meal for all to enjoy. Each room was beautifully decorated and had plenty space for the whole group. Both living rooms were warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend Dunowen House for a group getaway. Kela and her family could not have been more welcoming.

“A luxurious escape...”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I stayed here with 17 others for my sister's hen party this October. On arrival, Kela had baked warm scones for everyone and she was most welcoming. After a tour of the absolutely stunning house, we were left to set up for the party.

When the others arrived, they were as excited as little children at christmas looking at all of the beautiful bedrooms and choosing their own. Kela cooked us all a 3 course meal which we enjoyed in the dining room with some music and then we retreated into one of the living rooms where her husband and built a roaring fire.

We had arranged a cocktail class at the house and this was great fun. Kela had given us contact details for taxis to head into town. The next morning we were left to explore the grounds and the countryside before heading home.

Thanks to Kela and her family for hosting and from the reviews we have heard from the other girls, they all plan on coming back to stay again.

Fantastic stay.
