We arrived late as our flight was delayed, but received a lovely warm welcome! Our room had en suite, and a separate dressing room - gorgeous!! The house was fresh, clean and tastefully decorated! And there were wonderful choices for breakfast! Definitely recommended

A near perfect combination of personal B&B experience and professional facilities and service. The house was beautiful, clean and well cared for. The garden and flowers were gorgeous. The Driscols were warm hosts.

Having today completed a 2 day stay at the Bay View it has raised the bar for future comparisons. This was a lovely first time B&B experience and Miriam and Noreen made us feel welcome in their home without being intrusive. The freshly cooked breakfast was brilliant and porridge accompanied by a wee drop of Baileys made it the best... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights in August on our 8 night trip round west Cork and Kerry. We were initially booked in for 2 nights but loved it so much we asked to stay on for the third night! We were taken aback by the service and warmth that we were greeted with at Bayview House....

Thanks to Miriam and Noreen - we enjoyed every minute of our stay in Clonakilty. The beds were outstanding, the room with sun room attached was beautiful, the breakfasts were delicious with lots of variety. We stayed with our friends [Patty R and husband] and completely agree with her 5 star review posted a few days ago! We definitely recommend... More

My wife and I and our 8 year old grandson stayed for 2 nights at Bay View House. The decor is elegant, service and breakfasts are superb and the rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. We had a lovely room overlooking the bay and cows at pasture - so beautiful and peaceful. Just a short walk to all the... More

Our recent stay for two nights at Bay View House surpassed all our expectations. My only regret is that we hadn't booked to stay longer. I could say Bay View was home from home, but it was even better than that! From the cleanliness of the rooms, to the central location, to the quietness, to Tony's beautiful garden, to the... More

My husband and I had stayed at Bay View before with a couple of friends from New Zealand, and found it a great place to stay. We returned for 4 nights this August with my sister, for the purposes of visiting family and genealogy, as well as sightseeing in this beautiful area. As before , the hosts are friendly, gracious,...

Noreen and Miriam made our 4 day stay comfortable. The breakfast was the best with many healthy selections, especially the porridge, fresh fruit and yogurt. Of course we also ordered and enjoyed the traditional Irish breakfast with the blood sausages made in Clonakilty. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms immaculate. The garden was splendid. Our friends stayed in the room... More

We stayed at the bayview house for two nights and enjoyed it a lot! We booked the superior double room (no 5), which was very spacy (private sitting area, walk in wardrobe, big king size bed, two TVs). Nice furnitures and very cosy atmosphere. There is a nice view on clonakilty bay from the sitting area. When entering the room... More
