Interaction with Guests
It's your home from home while you are here. I want you to relax and feel comfortable. I will be around doing my stuff but you can ignore me if you wish.
We are near some great music venues, restaurants, cafes and the beach is only about 4 kilometers from here. Clonakilty is a very pretty town. There are wonderful flower displays over many of the businesses in town. There is a statue of Michael Collins in Emmet Square and a museum in his honor will open shortly.
Bus stop 1 minute walk. This bus takes you to Cork City with stops at each town on the way. Going west it takes you to Rosscarbery, Skibbereen and west as far as Goleen. Everything in Clonakilty town is walking distance.

Je ne suis resté qu'une seule nuit, mais l'accueil de Maura a été parfait. Chaleureuse et amicale, Maura est une hôte impeccable !
My husband and I had a wonderful stay in our room above Con and Maura's pub! Maura was very kind and welcoming and we loved our cosy room looking out on the adorable village streets below. I would definitely reccomend our stay to any other travelers looking for a place that feels like home.
Our bed was comfortable and the room was clean and spacious and felt very private. It was also fun to have private access into the location via the pub! We felt like VIP's and it was also prime for chatting with with the locals over a pint of Guiness.
We stayed at Maura's place for one night and had a great time. It was really typical and charming to stay above an Irish pub! We could youse the kitchen and had a nice dinner in front of the pub with some local beer.
If you are looking for a really welcoming, friendly Irish experience as well as some great fun with the locals downstairs at the pub, then you'll appreciate this well-kept, clean establishment. And Maura is such a dear with her cheerful personality; we felt like friends. We wondered if the shared bathroom would be problematic, but in fact, it worked out just fine. All in all, we had a great time for our 7-night stay and wish we had booked for longer. We thought renting over a pub would be an interesting experience but it turned out to be the standout in our trip to Ireland. Highly recommended!!!
Our stay at Maura's was absolutely delightful! It really made our stay in Clonakilty a wonderful experience. She is warm and gracious and ever so helpful! I truly hope to get the opportunity to get back there in the future. Thank you Maura!

About the Host, Maura
I run a quaint little pub in the heart of beautiful Clonakilty. I love music and have live open music here in the pub every weekend. I have the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world; which I really love.
