“Love it so much we go twice every year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010

In the year 2004 my wife and I wanted to holiday in cork, Ireland. We picked Seamount farmhouse B&B from a guide book and it was the best decision we could have made. On arrival Julia and Charlie greeted us with tea coffee and scones and are the most friendly and welcoming people you could wish to meet. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very homely. The breakfast's are the best you can get and the location is just beautiful. We were so impressed after our first stay we have been back twice a year for the last six years since our initial visit. We are going again in september for two weeks, looking forward to seeing Julia, Charlie, Deirdre, donkey and pony very much. Our daughter and her partner will also be joining us on this trip so we would reccomend it to anybody.

We had been to many b and b's but both felt Seamount was the best so far. We arrived very tired after doing a considerable amount of miles on our motorbike. Julia and Charles were very welcoming and made us tea and scones on arrival. We had a lovely chat with Charlie and Julia gave warmed some soup we had brought and gave us some lovely homemade bread to have with it. We had visited 3 years ago and they thanked us for returning. The scenery was stunning, rooms immaculate and stylish. Proper breakfast menu - lovely. The donkeys were beautiful and a new arrival was imminent!

We booked the Seamount Farmhouse B&B for two nights as we were travelling easily from Dingle towards Cork. Previous TripAdvisor contributors have not exaggerated about this place at all. This is a real B&B gem, run by two very guest-oriented people.
Whatever you wanted to know or to be explained about the farmhouse, the environment a.s.o. no effort was spared to provide the answers. I was asked to join a group of local walkers, what I did. This weekly trip (on the Sunday) this time went around Whiddy island (Bantry bay) and included detailed historic and geographic details by the guides Tommy and Charlie (the B&B host). A very interesting walk and a great day. Don’t miss this B&B if you are in the vicinity!

Stayed three nights in this really nice B&B seamount farm on sheep head. When you arrive, you get hot scones and hot tea. The hosts are very helpful to chose the right walking tracks and even assisted with walking sticks - thank you again! Definetly a place to return to.

The best B&B I have ever stayed in. The room was very nice and lovely decorated with high quality furniture. Moreover the room and the bathroom were very clean and in perfect condition. The breakfast was really incredible and rich.
The hosts were very polite and gave us a warm welcoming with offering tea and coffee.
The scenery around the house is stunning beautiful and the location is perfect for a recreative holiday. The next bigger town is Bantry which is just a 15 min drive away.
The only negative thing was to stay only 1 night there!

We were not very impressed with our stay at the Seamount Farmhouse for several reasons. First of all, we were charged a high price for our stay because they did not have any family rooms available and had to put us in two separate rooms. The bill came out to 118 euros a night which was the most expensive B&B of our vacation and it just was not good value to us at all. If I were them I would either have found a solution to board us at a cheaper price more consistent with their standard offerings, or suggested us to stay elsewhere.

In addition the location is not for everybody-- it is about a 20 minute drive to the nearest restaurants in Bantry. With two small kids we would have liked to eat somewhere closer to the B&B if possible. A travel guide mentioned that they served evening meals but that was not the case-- they only serve breakfasts.

We did not find their breakfasts very exciting, in contrary to what other reviewers have said. And the service was somewhat simple and not very welcoming.

However we recommend this place to people who plan to hike or bike the Sheep's Head and are traveling without young children and would enjoy the isolation and silence and surroundings of this beautiful peninsula.

They also do a very good job of keeping their rooms very clean and ordered.
