This B&B is a little out of town BUT has a fantastic view over the harbour. Our room was in the top floor facing the front so we could enjoy the view until nightfall. Marguerite is a wonderful hostess. She loves what she does and makes you feel very welcome. The room is bright and cheerful and spacious. Unfortunately we... More

Margarite was a delightful hostess. Most friendly place we stayed in all of Ireland. Quaint small town feel. B and B clean and modern. Yummy food. She bakes her own scones, brown bread and jam. I would recommend it to anyone and the village was friendly and warm. Great meal at the local pub I can't wait to return

Baltimore is a bit off the beaten path but it was a pleasant surprise. Marguerite was incredibly welcoming and her house is beautiful. Her rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Breakfast was delightful. Overall the top place we've stayed so far in our 7 nights in Ireland.

We only stayed one night on our coastal trip of Ireland, but he Rathmore house was by far one of the top, if not the top, bed and breakfast we stayed at so far. Big rooms and beautiful views from them, quiet, clean and spacious rooms. We stayed in a room with 4 beds for a family of four. Breakfast... More

We stayed at Rathmore House for one night in May. We would gladly have stayed longer. The welcome was warm and our room was of the quality of a five star hotel, with every amenity, including electric blankets, provided. The view from our window across the estuary was spectacular. Breakfast was also impressive - particularly the fact that the coffee... More

While you will need you car to get to Baltimore from here, this is a great B&B. Margurette is a wonderful host and her Kippers and eggs are a delight. You're in walking distance of the Sibin Bar for dinner (one of the best dinners we had in Ireland). Comfy rooms for family. Great views.

This quaint B&B has beautiful views and a relaxing feel. There is a restaurant down the street that is not to be missed. Our breakfast in the morning was spectacular! Close proximity to County Cork as well as County Kerry. Hope it visit again someday.
