Peaceful, working farm cottage house!
The Brown Hen was a delight to stay in. From the decor, comfy beds to relaxing, serene farmland this stay was just perfect. Our host, Gwyneth was charming, personable and such a lovely lady. We will be back! You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking to stay a little off the beaten path out of the hustle and bustle.

Brown Hen
The Brown Hen house was well appointed and tidy. The wifi was reliable and the house heated easily and comfortably when required. Driving to Cork city mid day didn’t take too long and I was surrounded by nature at the house mornings and evenings. The host was gracious, helpful, and responsive. I’m grateful to have stayed at The Brown Hen.

Delightful farm stay in rolling green hills!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Brown Hen. The cottage is immaculate and well appointed, and the tasteful decor invites you to settle in and enjoy its warmth and charm. It is also ideally located for leisurely drives and walks along the coast to marvel at its rugged wind swept beauty. Thank you sincerely, Gwyneth, for welcoming us so genuinely to your country home and to the farm. You know how much we enjoyed our trip down memory lane amongst the cows and calves! We appreciated your gracious hospitality, your heartfelt concern for your guests' well being and your endearing nature. May you and Mervyn be blessed with many more grateful visitors!
