From 5 star hotels and family run B&Bs to city centre hostels and self catering cottages by the sea to camping in some of the most beautiful parts of Ireland we have your bed and board covered. 

All of our accommodation providers are committed to using energy efficiently, minimising waste, recycling, sourcing locally and in most cases taking part in local community challenges such as beach clean ups and tidy towns’ initiatives. You may even get the chance to play an active role by helping in the garden or feeding the hens. Or perhaps you’d simply like to do your bit by choosing a green place to stay and simply enjoying the service, comfort and experience your hosts offer.

In recognition of your decision to travel responsibly and to support businesses that share the same ethos, some of our accommodation providers have a special Green Treat for anyone booking through Green Travel. Use our on line booking system or mention when making your booking direct to receive your much deserved Green Treat. It could be some home-made biscuits in your room or the use of bikes to check out the local area, maybe you’ll get tickets to a nearby theatre or a free drink at the bar? Get booking and enjoy both your stay and your treat!

Our 25 bedroomed West Cork Hotel sits on the lakeshore and our family have been living here for 5 generations.  Neil’s grandparents, Connie and Joan Cronin opened this hotel in 1936, 83 years ago.

Our hotel is small and cosy with 25 bedrooms, and is seasonal from late March to early November.  We have an interesting well stocked bar, two cosy sitting rooms, where you can feel welcome to drop in and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere here.  Guests tend to return for generations, and new guests are always welcome.


We have bikes, fishing, rowing boats and walking trails to the back door and are on the edge of Coilltes’ National Forest Park, just half a mile walk from the front door.  Make it a magical memory for a family gathering an escape for no particular reason, a romantic getaway, an activity break or a family walking holiday in the hills surrounding us.  Visit Gougane Barra at least once in your lifetime to experience it.  Make our home your home in West Cork.  We believe in sharing the Magic.
