This was my second stay at Atlantic Villa. It is the best B&B I have every stayed at, and my partner agrees! This is a fine period house located in Knightstown, just five minutes from the Valentia ferry ( which is a quick 10 minute trip to the mainland). Perfect for a stroll down to the village and harbour.

Return guests are always so welcome. Especially when they come to stay for a week and found lots to see and do, in and around this little island. We look forward to your next visit. More

This place is absolutely superb. We couldn't find a single fault. Very friendly welcome. Beautiful room. Excellent view. Fabulous breakfast. Room was spotlessly clean. Excellent sleep quality. Great location. If you're looking for character, local knowledge, and a relaxed yet elegant experience, then this is the place for you. You won't do better. I'll definitely return.

We stayed in one of the cottages attached to the B&B (Tig 1, the one bedroomed cottage). From the welcome to the exit, Jackie and Brian have been amazing. Their cottages are clean and welcoming. Their knowledge of the area and willingness to assist in booking days out and guidance on what to see is fantastic. Beginish, the beach is... More

It was our pleasure to have you as our neighbours for a whole week. The fact that you were both gourmet cooks and went foraging each evening in the garden for herbs and veg to supplement your tasty and healthy meals was great to see. The patio was well used as you caught the sun rays ,,, You really made... More

My husband and I stayed for one might, however should have made it for at least a week! Jackie offered refreshments on arrival with information and guides for the island.

A gorgeous B&B in an incredibly scenic location, with very friendly and helpful hosts. Super comfortable beds, immaculate and beautifully furnished rooms. Lovely food too, particularly liked the locally made yoghurt. A great deal.

We just booked for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. A complete retreat with plenty of charm & history just a short stroll from Knightstown. Our room had a lovely sea view, free- standing bath & the most comfortable bed I've slept in for a long time. Nice touches with breakfast e.g. Eggs from their own hens,... More

I enjoyed your remark about the best sleep you have had ever! We brought our featherest beds from Canada so perhaps that is where you were reminded of the Inns.. .... Many guests have complimented them and a good sleep sets everybody up for the day . More

Charming location, warm welcome, lovely room, amazing view of the sea from the room, excellent choice of breakfast including delicious local sea-food. This was our second visit and just as good as the first, Valentia Island has much to offer in views and walks.
