Also had a great dress mirror and lovely tea/coffee mugs. The dining room was a large conservatory with wonderful sea views. Breakfast was amazing with cereals, yoghurt and lots... More

This BnB is situated in very auspicious location - in front of Bay and near a small beautiful beach. The host indeed welcomed and served us very well. As I am vegetarian, the host cooked something very good for me made of Potatoes. Its truly enjoyable and relaxing place.

This B and B is well appointed clean and welcoming. The ensuite is small as others noted but it is manageable and adequate. The location with sweeping sea views is wonderful. Breakfast was excellent. Lovely walks around the area and excellent local pub with cut above food.

The most beautiful view from a room I have ever stayed in. Quite far out but so worth the drive. This area would be a fantastic place for walkers. The owners were lovely and breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the sea was amazing.

We experienced a warm welcome to this lovely Guest House. We stayed for 4 nights & our room was clean & very comfortable. Breakfast is First Class, including fresh fruit. Beautiful, rural location with good walking from the front door.

What a treasure in an unspoilt area of cork. We were made very welcome had very clean comfortable rooms. The Landlady provided a fresh cooked breakfast and a selection of fruits and yogurts. Ideal setting for walkers, cyclists and coast lovers. Castletownshend has a lovely restaurant Mary Ann's that will satisfy most dinners. Sandy cove B&B is Good value for... More

This B&B was better than I even anticipated when I booked it. We had a great room with an excellent view of the bay. The room was small, and the bathroom was tiny, but it's fine for 2 adults. We were in Ireland and the breakfast at the Sandycove House was the best breakfast we had all week. Fresh fruit,... More
