|Bridge House B&B, Skibbereen|
|Mona holding court in her lounge|
Mona Best, mine hostess of ‘The Bridge House’, a Bed & Breakfast establishment in Skibbereen, Ireland is an extraordinary character who has transformed a generally nondescript boarding house into what has been described in the ‘Irish Times’ as, ‘…...the most unusual B&B in Ireland’. In my experience it is the most extraordinary in all of Europe. Externally, the building although displaying signs of having been given more than a little thought, belies all of which lies within; a fantastic collection of objects to which Mona has, over many years, gathered in and now has displayed in most unlikely juxtapositions on every surface, both vertical and horizontal, throughout her home.
