This was my second time to stay with Eileen and her family in Ard na Gaoithe on beautiful Cape Clear Island. From the quayside you follow a steep hill to the house and as you walk through the garden gate, a flower lined path leads you to the front door. The first impression is that you are approaching a little... More

My mother and I stayed for one night only, we wish it could have been more! Unfortunately we arrived too late in the evening for the scones, I wont miss them next time. Breakfast was truly delicious with choices of Traditional Irish as well as French Toast, Pancakes and more! The two rooms looked out towards the sea, with the... More

This B and B is lovely. A spotless bedroom and very high quality bedding make for a good night's sleep. Refreshments on arrival up the steep hill from the south harbour are the reviving snack for those going for further walks in the pure air. Breakfast was truly delicious and very plentiful. This stay was our third and we will... More

Spent one night here in early February. Eileen welcomed us like family. Good family, that is! The complementary tea and scones upon arrival were freshly baked. The room was clean and comfortable. And the breakfast next morning was one of the best I've ever had in Ireland. Highly recommended!

Cape Clear Island is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Eileen takes care of her guestsspeaker and provides them with anything (from welcome tea to full Irish breakfas) they need. The dining room is open all day and there is a good WiFi connection. If you don't mean to climb up a really steep hill with all your luggage,... More

On a recent bike trip around the Southwest, I went to Cape Clear on a whim from Schull . So last minute found a vacancy at Ard na Goithe and stayed for two nights. Just a terrific, totally relaxing really well run B and B. Friendly, spotless, bright rooms, amazingly quiet and with terrific food and friendly operators. Strongly recommend!!

I've stayed with the Leonards at Ard na Gaoithe on many an occasion and I am always met with the same friendliness and warmth, they always make time for you! I've always been made feel very welcome and I'd go so far as to call it a home from home. The rooms are clean and a quiet sleep is always... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 wonderful days on Clear Island. It was our first visit to this lovely island. We found the people were very friendly and helpful. We have been using B&Bs for more than 45 years and without doubt, in overall terms, Ard na Gaoithe B&B, run by the Leonard family, is amongst the top three... More
