“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I recently stayed in this wonderful B&B for 4 nights. It was the second time I've stayed here and both times have been simply wonderful. Kathleen, the owner, is one of the most friendliest people I know and is always willing to help whether it be by offering a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon or for directions to a decent restaurant.

The rooms are well appointed and the wifi is a welcome addition. The breakfast is delicious and is always very efficient and consistently good. My personal favourite is the fresh fruit salad as it always looks so presentable and is proper fresh fruit, not like the bowls of fruit that just taste of melon in hotels.

The sea view from the front of the B&B is pretty spectacular, especially on a fine day and the peace and quiet is really something very special. The B&B has a really homely and comfortable front sitting room for guests where they can sit and relax without being disturbed.

I cannot say enough good things about this place and I will definitely be returning in the future.

Ger (and Malcolm and Celine).

Not the easiest location to find, however the hospitality and accomodation was so excellent that the travel uncertainties paled into insignificance. The room accomodation was first rate, and the freshly prepared breakfasts were a delight to enjoy. What a place! The countryside and locale are just magnificent, as well as the first class dining to be had in the village of Castletownsend. We enjoyed the local food thanks to the advise of Kathleen, who also gave us excellent knowledge of the area to view on the Bere peninsular. All in all, an experience of quality in every regard, thank you once again Kathleen.

From the moment we arrived extremely late on Friday night we could not have wished for a more genuine welcome. Everything was perfect, our room, facilities, breakfast and Kathleen`s lovely smile every morning. She was a mine of information and she and her husband made us feel so at home. I will never forget the drive along the Coast Road, with hedgerows full of wild flowers and the view of the Atlantic from the conservatory while we ate our delicious breakfast. Definitely a little corner of heaven on earth!!!

We had a great stay at Atlantic House, the room was spotless, GREAT shower, fantastic food and freshly prepared just for us. Great view from the breakfast room of the Atlantic. Kathleen is a great advocate for the local area with good knowledge of local beauty spots, restaurants etc. Great friendly family pet in 'Buddy'!
Would fully recommend this to anyone wanting to get away for a few days and still be in contact with the world.

Room Tip: Very poor mobile signal but the free wi fi help greatly!

We picked this Bed & Breakfast by tossing a coin and it really worked out well. The staff were wonderful and helpful with giving the right and some very good informations about the area. The breakfast that was included was really nice - made fresh to order with a lot of cold/hot options. The rooms were really nice and clean. They have a nice study where you could sit and enjoy a beverage. We will come back again as our annual petanque "Sandy Cove grand prix" is on the next Beach.

We recently stayed with Kathleen and John at the start of our holidays towards the end of July of this year. We had the triple room which was spotlessly clean and tidy, very comfortable and a perfect size even though we were three adults sharing the room (rather large ones in some cases, at that!). Breakfast was lovely - my husband helped himself to the fry up every day, happily munching into sausages and bacon and eggs, all washed down with excellent fresh coffee. I tried a variety of breakfasts, possibly my favourite being porridge with honey and scrambled eggs on toast. Our friend loved the fruit salad every morning - which is funny because she never eats it at home!

Kathleen gave us such a welcome to her home and was always lovely, taking time to chat and talk alongside running a family home and business. Nothing was too much for her. John's cooking went down a treat. The free WiFi was well used and the guest sittingroom with the view of the sea was so lovely. Castletownshend is a fantastic village, so pretty and quiet with stunning views and we've visited many many times.

We would heartily recommend a stay with Kathleen and John, you will NOT regret it!!

Oh and Tweety stole our hearts... hello Tweetie!!!!
