Our breakfast is simply whatever you would like us to cook for you. We have Fresh Fruit, Cereals, Bunalun Organic Oats and West Cork Yogurts followed by Traditional Irish Breakfast - as full as you like. Choose from West Cork Smoked Bacon, Tim McCarthy's Sausages, Clonakilty Black and White Pudding, Tomatoes, Irish Mushrooms and Irish Hash Browns. Murphy's Upton Eggs can be boiled, fried, poached, scrambled or made into an omelette with Ballineen Cheddar, Gubbeen or Durrus Cheese. Or perhaps you would like a cheese plate with Irish Farmhouse Cheeses. If the breakfast you prefer is something else, we can cook that too. Our homemade Brown Soda Bread, Toast, Bandon Creamery Butter, Irene's Marmalade, Michael Pat's Honey and Jennifer Burchill's Jams are there for you too.
