We spent just the 1 night here but will definitely be back for longer at some point. Jackie was extremely welcoming and provided lots of interesting information about the island. We stayed in room 3, which was a little more expensive I think, but it was worth it for the sea view alone! Breakfast was amazing, with everything home made/grown... More

Thanks for your kind words! The chair at the window in the bedroom offers a sea view and it is indeed a spectacular one, looking out over Beginis Island and to the Atlantic Ocean with it's crashing waves - The Wild Atlantic Way!. We look forward to meeting you again on your next visit. More

We arrived at the Atlantic Villa after a great day of cycling from Sneem, thru PortMagee, and across the island to Knightstown. Brian and Jackie were waiting for us with a warm welcome. Jackie did not only show us to our room, she gave us an excellent history of the island and itemized sights we may have wished to see... More

We stayed only one night at Atlantic Villa B&B. Comfortable and big room, amazing breakfast, ocean view from the room and very friendly host. I would have stayed longer :-) Thank you for the warm welcome and wonderful time, Jackie!

This is one of 2 places I stayed on the Island and, what a surprise it was. 'Olde Worlde' elegance describes it best. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. They take real pride in serving up a fantastic breakfast the following morning. Wish I could have stayed another night but they were booked out.

Beautiful old house with an unforgettable atmosphere! We felt very welcome by the owner Jackie, and we were really honored that she has served the breakfast in the morning herself and told us everything about the fresh organic components that were in!

I was happy to be able to accommodate you and it was my pleasure to arrange the Skellig trip for you all. It is indeed a very special place any many guests come to stay with us specifically to visit these UNESCO islands . As you said yourself perhaps you will come again and stay longer the next time!
