I spent three fantastic days on Cape Clear island 12 kilometres off Baltimore, Co Cork, Ireland's and stayed in the most wonderful Bed & Breakfast, Árd na Goaithe, which means 'high wind'. Having arrived on Wednesday afternoon last week, I was welcomed by Eileen Leonard, the proprietor and treated with tea and scones. My room was very comfortable and quiet,... More

We stayed here recently and the family that run the B&B were very nice to deal with. We were greeted by tea and some of the finest homemade cakes I've had. It was a great touch to the start of our enjoyable stay on the island.

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
