On a recommendation by the publican at Mary Anne’s we ended up at Sandycove House B&B. During our three week stay – this was by far our favorite B&B experience. The views are stunning – the proprietors friendly – and all and all a wonderful place. HIGHLY recommend this slightly out of the way stop.

WOW... This is the 2nd best view in all of Ireland - Cliff of Moher being the first. :) Lovely spot on the coast and the beach & cliffs right outside your door. You could not ask for more! The gentlman was so nice and helpful and there is a terrific place to eat seafood just 5 minutes down the... More

Well this b&b has stunning views but otherwise I am not sure why anyone would be spending time in this town of castletownshend. There are much better places to be. Owners are friendly and charming, but seemed unprepaired for the extra guest. We showed up unnanounced as we didn't plan to be staying in this town as we were just... More

A few minutes' drive away of the small village of Castletownshend, Sandycove B&B stands facing the sea. A small beach hidden in the rocks is also accessible through stairs going down from the B&B. There are only six rooms but some are looking out to the sea. Breakfast is also served in a room with 3 glass walls out of... More

We were here in 2008. It was a three-day trip Irlandii.Pierwszą night we were just in the House of Sandycove. It is a very lovely place and a great view from the room window. The owners were kind and hospitable. I recommend!

The wife & I usually agree within about 20% of each other on things, but this is the one where we are in absolute agreement. This is the best place we've ever stayed. The accomodations at the Sandycove House are very good, breakfasts have been excellent, but the location is unsurpassed in our travels. The view out to the bay... More

This was my 5th trip to Ireland. I always stayed at b&b’s or guesthouses with scenic views, but the Sandycove House’s location is absolutely stunning. You can gaze at the Ocean (and kormorans, and seals…!) just while sitting on your bed (provided that you’ve booked a sea-side room). The dining/living room is comfortable and equipped with full-length windows, so you... More

Great sea view, clean and comfortable, decent shower pressure and very friendly and helpful hosts John and Breda. On account of the rain they dropped us down to the restaurant (Mary Anne's) and collected us afterwards.

Not sure what the person from Missouri was talking about......My husband and I have been traveling around Ireland for a month and one of our last stops has been in the Southwest....Castletownsend, Co. Cork..... The most fabulous spot we have found. The vista is better than the Cliffs of Moher.....that being said, the B & B is grand, the proprietor... More

Let me start off by saying the location is absolutely stunning. Amazing views of the sea and a small beach accessible if you do a bit of climbing. However, it also rather hard to find and takes a while to get anywhere from the house. Also, we found the hostess to be rather unfriendly and not at all professional. The... More
