We arrived here in the late afternoon, when the weather was meant to turn from the hot and sunny days we'd been having. We were eager to go for a walk, and after showing us to our room, Irene recommended the Copper Mine trail, which turned out to be an excellent hike. The continental breakfast selection is outstanding, with lots... More

I have been walking the Beara Way and Irene's Beach View B&B in Allihies was the best! I was on foot so Irene picked me up after dinner in the village. The room was clean with tea and coffee making facilities. The B&B is on a quiet road about a km from Allihies, which means it is quiet but that... More

We've been to Ireland 8 times now, have stayed in many b&bs, but this one had more attention to detail then any before. We had a long days drive from the east coast, arrived in Allihies town at 9pm, stopped at the pub for soup and a pint, mentioned where we were staying, the publican called Irene at the b&b,... More

Not in the center of Allihies but nicely located and with a view. The hospitable owner is a cheerful, helpful, very pleasant lady. I was here with my husband and a hiking group and we got royal treatment. The rooms were very clean, tea and coffee in room, TV, nice toiletries. There is Irish breakfast in the morning in a... More

It wasn't my first stay at Beach View and I'm pleased to see it doesn't change: the same lovely house, warm welcome, nice room and huge breakfast, and also this more than perfect cleanness! Beach View house is worth the journey to Allihies and I'll return again and again.

We stayed in Irene's B&B last weekend, and it was a lovely experience. Irene herself is very welcoming, friendly, helpful, but unobtrusive. She offered to drive us to the village for dinner and collected us when we rang her later on - a great service! The B&B is top class. Spotlessly clean, the bedroom was of hotel standard. The breakfast... More

Irene has it! She has the natural flow to make you feel comfortable and at ease! We slept in the family room and it was sooo cosy! Also very clean :) You can make tea at your room, so that's also nice after a walking trip. The breakfast was delicious, with a lot of fresh fruits! You can also order... More

I booked in Irene's b&b just 2 weeks before our arrival, by simply confirming via e-mail. This was enough to secure the room, no credit card detailes to be given: aspect that made me think about the trusty atmosphere I would 'breathe' there. When we arrived, Irene welcomed us with the greatest kindness ever. She helped us with the bike... More

I agree with the previous excellent reviews about this B&B. It really is exceptional. Irene is a great host and the breakfast rather then being the traditional B&B fry is a spread of cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, berries and nuts, deicious bread and salmon and you can have any variety of cooked breakfast too. Just the thing for a long... More

From the welcome, to the room, the breakfast and the offer of a sandwich to take on our daily travels, Irene's hospitality is unparalleled. The outlook from this B & B has to be seen to be believed. Our three days staying with Irene were better than any of the numerous B & Bs we have been to and the... More
