We were the first guests of the season and were only at Bay View for one night. Noreen greeted us warmly on a rainy day, offering tea and coffee. Miriam helped us with a map of Clonakilty and assisted in pointing out the sites and restaurants for our walk-about. We were glad to be able to leave the car behind... More

One of the best B&B's of our trip. Miriam was an extremely welcoming host-- she helped us navigate the charming town and served one of best Irish breakfasts. The room was sunny with comfortable bed, and the view of the Bay is just spectacular. Highly recommended!

Myself and my mum had a wonderful stay at the BayView house. We were welcomed by Miriam with a very warm and friendly reception. Great location and really enjoyed meeting Miriam's mum who cooked us breakfast the following day. Very nicely run family guesthouse. Jayne and Trish 😃

Of the three B & B 's that we stayed in while on our Ireland vacation Bay View was by far the best in all category's. Just driving in to Bay View was very welcoming with its beautiful flowers & welcoming gardens. The interior is well appointed with lovely rooms, little parlors to sit in great breakfasts, & cleanliness. The... More

We returned a week ago from a stay at the Bay View House B&B, what a fantastic find! Miriam and Noreen are so welcoming and their home is immaculate, we stayed in a couple of the rooms which were both lovely, one having a fantastic view of the bay. We couldn't fault a thing, it's only a very short walk,... More

We stayed with two other couples recently (Sept. 4-6, 2014) at Bay View. The Driscolls are a lovely family who shared not only their wonderful home but stories of travels and recommendations for our time in Ireland.Their flowers were still blooming in the fabulous gardens that surround their home. Each couple had a beautiful room with wondrous views of the... More

We stayed six nights (25.7 – 31.7) at the bay view house and enjoyed our time in these wonderful B&B very much. The house is big and has a beautiful area with a lot of flowers. We had such a lovely, clean and big room with a view to the bay. It was excellent. The B&B is just perfect. Everything... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night here and regret not having more time. The rooms are beautifully and subtlely decorated, with great attention to comfort. The beds and linens are wonderful, as are the gardens and the upstairs sitting room with a view of the water. The location is perfect--a short walk to excellent restaurants but in a quiet neighbourhood.... More

My only regret about this place was that we only stayed one night there. Miriam and her mother, Noreen, were beyond gracious and our time spent conversing with them was a pure delight. We had the superior room, and the amenities were so far beyond other B&B's that it was more like staying in a luxury suite for a fraction... More
