“A Family Homestay Full of Warmth and Joy”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A wonderful family welcomed us to their home and made us feel part of the Irish family. We had good food, comfort, even help with our dirty clothes. The location was on our route around the Beara Way and well located for our walk. The B&B is relatively new and Fran, the host, makes every effort to make you feel at home. Well worth it for however long you stay.

“West Cork & Ring of Beara area”

Booking Cappa House as my home base was the best decision i made, during my 16 days of travel. Over the years I've travelled 27 of the 32 counties and this is the prettiest area by far! The house is 30 minutes from Golf, Shopping, Horseback Riding, Fishing, Cycling, Hiking, Garnish Island (Italian garden), Surfing and many more. Just let Fran know what you'd like to do and she will gladly guide you! Imagine...all with-in 30 minutes! The house is exactly as shown in the photo's. Cappa House is very modern and up to date.

If you are visiting in the summer months, you are bound to find a festival in one of the four nearby towns...all with-in the same 30 minutes and each village has it's own personality. Enjoy lively, traditional Irish music & a few dancers or participate in a set yourself!

Cappa House is suitable for many types of holidays. If you are traveling with children, look under the stairs and you'll find a treasure trove of toys, If you are away for a romantic weekend, the house has wine, champagne & beer glasses, candles, stove & a stunning view!
If you are an explorer, you will find many hiking paths, hot shower and friendly faces in the local pubs. If it's raining, it's time for baking. Fran has the kitchen stocked with every pan, pot, colander (I really thought she would not have that - she had 3!) and utensil you could think of.

Another great thing about this property - no rooster to wake you up at 5am! The cows don't even make a sound until 8am, perfect after one of those nights when you really "got local"!

Before you leave Cappa House I would highly recommend watching the sunset over Beara Bay with your favorite beverage on the slate table, just outside the house - Incredible view!

In the area I would recommend the following restaurants:
Eyeries Village: Rhonwen's Bistro for dinner, Causkey's Pub for drinks, The Shop, Evey Murphy for tea, coffee and homemade cakes - Yum!
Glengarriff: Martello's is a MUST - white cloth service.
Ardgroom - Village Inn; a very relaxing atmosphere.
Allihies - Jimmy's and for the best cone anywhere O'Sullivans Grocery.

You will get the sense that Fran really wants you to enjoy your holiday and will do all she can to ensure it's probability - you don't get that everywhere! Fran is one stop shop, she is professional and fun to be around! She is proud of the area and can recommend contacts for, you to call either before or during your stay.

Cappa House, in many ways had more to offer than my own house - so I never felt homesick.

“A spacious and comfortable house with relaxed homely atmosphere withan excellent quiet walk to the sea.”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Cappa house is a perfect place to relax and feel at home when on holiday.It has an open fire in a spacious living room.A large separate bathroom that is quiet and peaceful.The front rooms including the sunroom provide a great view of the sea. It is a perfect secluded location with a path to the sea from the house. Great for cycling ,hill walking or taking out your boat., but espically good if you would like to bring your dog with you.

“Stunning views in a beautiful house - Perfect location on Beara Pennisula”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Six of us staying in Cappa House over the May bank holiday weekend. The house is really cosy and clean and perfect for 6 - 8 people as it has 3 bedrooms ensuite as well as a main bathroom. It has two sittings rooms overlooking the most amazing view. It is There is lots of walking right on your doorstep and the drive or walk from to Ahillies in my opinion is on of the prettiest in Ireland! There are couple of pubs and a restaurant only 20 mins walk to to Eyeries. The Cafe Bistro is lovely with amazing deserts and home made ice cream. Castletownbere is only a 10 mins drive a visit to McCarthy's bar is a must.
We would definitely like to stay there again.

“Great accommodation, awesome landscapes and stunning view!”
Reviewed 11 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Me and my friends spent a great weekend at the Cappa house. The house is awesome with the fire place and plenty bathrooms and a lot of space in general! The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed cooking and dining together so much. The sun room has a stunning sea view and the beds are so comfy! There are a lot of dvd's and games available and a TV. I couldn't have asked for more in this accommodation. The peninsula itself is gorgeous and Fran was so welcoming and helped us with everything, such as planning activities and bus connections from and back to Cork. She was also very flexible with meeting for the keys. We went for hikes and because the sea is so close we even went for a very short swim, although it was quite cold. A hot shower at the Cappa house and the fire treated us well afterwards! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to visit the Beara peninsula.
Thank you so much for this, Fran!
