A warm welcome - home from home, fantastic views overlooking the ocean, 2 beaches within very short walking distance, extremely clean, great for families. I highly recommend and will definitely return.

Overall a good stay. We stayed here 4 nights in order to attend a family friend's wedding. Place was clean, and owner was attentive to overall needs. The place is a bit hard to find/get to, so please ensure you have some good directions (we got lost and took us an extra hour to get there) in order to minimize... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this delightful B&B. Breda is a gracious hostess and very informative. The fresh fruit & brown bread at breakfast were delicious. And the view was spectacular! The room we were in was very small and we were ill prepared to relax, comfortably, in the shared common room. We were a tad cramped and thank... More

This was my second time staying at Sandycove, I was working in the area and so booked two nights in this, one of Irelands hidden gems, Truly genuine and thoughtful people, Breda is just wonderful and is someone who is more like a friend rather than the perfect host. The room was great and the sea views just fantastic, the... More

Stayed two nights with the O'Driscolls at Sandycove House. The view from our room was beyond spectacular, and their large breakfast/lounging area had the same magnificent view of the ocean and crashing waves. The property was not open for the season yet, but the O'Driscolls graciously let us stay and were so helpful, I'm not sure we would have ever... More

After spending most of the month of September traveling around Ireland, there were a few B&Bs that rose to the top. Sandycove was in the top few. Breda was phenomenal. The view and location truly could not be beat. The service and breakfast was outstanding. Beach is right across the street. We asked Breda to recommend a place for dinner,... More

This was my 2nd visit to Sandycove House with friends from Australia whose one request was to come to Castletownshend and stay in Sandycove House while in Ireland. We stayed for 2 nights and were not disappointed. Breda was delighted to see us and the welcome was amazing. My friend decided not to go out on 2nd day and to... More
