We recently spent a couple of days on Cape Clear. When we arrived at Ard na Gaoithe, we were met at the door by Triona, who greeted us warmly and kindly offered us tea to refresh us after our journey from the mainland. The visit was a lovely experience and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ard na Gaoithe.... More

Arrived early afternoon where I was greeted warmly by my lovely host who provided me with coffee and homemade scones. Eileen provided me with plenty of information about what to do, where to eat and where to go on the Island. The B&B itself was really comfortable with a separate living room with a tv, books and magazines. Breakfast was... More

This was my second time to stay with Eileen and her family in Ard na Gaoithe on beautiful Cape Clear Island. From the quayside you follow a steep hill to the house and as you walk through the garden gate, a flower lined path leads you to the front door. The first impression is that you are approaching a little... More

This B and B is lovely. A spotless bedroom and very high quality bedding make for a good night's sleep. Refreshments on arrival up the steep hill from the south harbour are the reviving snack for those going for further walks in the pure air. Breakfast was truly delicious and very plentiful. This stay was our third and we will... More

Spent one night here in early February. Eileen welcomed us like family. Good family, that is! The complementary tea and scones upon arrival were freshly baked. The room was clean and comfortable. And the breakfast next morning was one of the best I've ever had in Ireland. Highly recommended!

Cape Clear Island is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Eileen takes care of her guestsspeaker and provides them with anything (from welcome tea to full Irish breakfas) they need. The dining room is open all day and there is a good WiFi connection. If you don't mean to climb up a really steep hill with all your luggage,... More
