Coolbawn Lodge Farmhouse Skibbereen
My secret is " I just love guests coming to our home". My heart still jumps for joy as guests arrival time is approaching...
It's so important to have that welcome pot of tea or coffee available and some lovely home baking,and our lovely world renowned West Cork Cheese board as I find so many of our guests so appreciate it, as their lives are so busy and home baking is a real treat for them.
Always remember that guests are not in their own homes and any thing that I think they may need, no matter what, just make sure you can deliver.
Giving guests their own space, if required, is important and communicating with guests if they need to chat is also very important.
I love to grow our own herbs and organic fruit to serve on the breakfast table.
It is also very important to take some breaks and see how it feel "on the other side "of the business. You can find some things that you can add to your bed and breakfast or you might say " I would not do that in a million years..."like clearing off the table so fast and giving the hint to "move on"...
The main thing is to just "Love your guests, treasure their time spent in your home and enjoy the conversations"
