“Must be the best Band B in Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We have stayed with Maurice and Aisling on three ocasions, most recently at the end of September.
We can't speak highy enough of the hospitality and servioce which Maurice abd Aisling always extend to us. The whloe house is in pristine condition and enjoys a stunning view over the sea and the magnificent 12 Bens Mountains
This time we wanted to watch some football on TV in the evening and Maurice lit a beautiful warm Irish fire for us and made us very cosy and warm.
Maurice is extremely thoughtful, and without being in any way intrusive he makes his guests feel very welcome and at home.
We are really looking forward to our next stay in Island View House in the spring.
Brian and Anne Elliott, Castleknock, Dublin Ireland.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view rooms.

We also enjoyed the welcome we received at the Island View. The room was very clean and we had a room with a view, a real island view. The traditional breakfast the following morning was delicious - local smoked salmon with fresh eggs! Would recommend a stay here very strongly. And don't forget the best pub in Roundstone: O'Dowd's. Super seafood salade!

Maurice was the best B&B owner we have ever met. After our rental car broke down in Roundstone, he not only reserved two rooms for us, but he also spent over three hours on the phone with the car rental company trying to get them to send us a new car. He turned a stressful situation into an enjoyable time. To top it all off, his breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs was delicious. Best experience you could hope for at a B&B.

Really enjoyed the welcome we received at the Island View. The room was very clean and we had a room with a view,which was superb. The breakfast the following morning was delicious - local smoked salmon with fresh eggs! Would recommend a stay here it was very reasonably priced for what we got.

Room Tip: Ask for the room upstairs (without the TV) the view is great and quiet!

Stayed a night here in june. Warm welcome with scones & tea by a peat fire. Had a lovely good sized room with everything you could wish for. Very clean & liked the contemporary style. Lovely well cooked breakfast.Excellent value. Loved Roundstone, very pretty village with good pubs & B&B in easy walking distance. One small downside could hear everything from nextdoors bathroom in the night.However would definately recommend & would stay again.
