Apologies for the late review. This is one of the cutest cleanest little places I have ever stayed. The owners were wonderful and more than accomodating. If I ever get back to the Emerald Isle, I will surely attempt to spend some time with these fine folk!

The B&B was just next to the road, and actually hard to find, because they have a really small sign. The room was really small, but the bathroom was even smaller. You had to keep the door open to be able to go to the toilet and there was no space to dry yourself off after showering.Not only that, but... More

Terribly attitude from the owners, and poor quality of breakfast and rooms. We stayed here when attending a friend's wedding in the nearby Maryborough House. No one at the BandB to let us in when we arrived at the time which we had previously confirmed by both email and phone (the owner called to say she would arrive late, gave... More

We stayed here in November of 2013; nice Victorian era house in a nice, pedestrian friendly area. Mr and Mrs Edwards were phenomenal hosts; Mr Edwards recommended a restaurant (Barry's of Douglas..check it out if you're in the area) for dinner, or to "at least have a pint at while you decide where to go" . The room was spacious,... More

We vacated a disastrous online booking on the Western Road without staying and phoned River View very late. Our hosts were most helpful, guiding us by phone across the city till we found them, and reserving a parking spot in the street as we arrived. They recommended a great pub and restaurant nearby called Barry's. Very handy to Cork Airport... More

We were recommended this by the Tourist Office and chose it as it was conveniently close to friends we were visiting. We had been staying in rural places so this was quite a change being part of a terrace and not having its own parking. The host was very helpful saving a space for us right in front of the... More

My husband and I enjoyed three days and three nights with this lovely family. We arrived in the middle of our three week trek around Ireland. We were feeling a bit overwhelmed and slightly battered as our last hotel was rough for us. The room had a nice shower, our bed was comfortable, but mostly we felt so welcome and... More

We got extremely lost trying to find this B & B with our GPS, We called and let them know we were going to be somewhat late as a result. When we did arrive it was like they were upset with us for not finding them, we were holding them up or something.The owner scribbled a note saying we were... More

The reviewer signed our visitor's book "lovely". "River View" was built in 1892 when parking was not an issue. The only parking available is on a publc street. We try to keep parking for guests but this is not always possible. We provided parking for the reviewer in the grounds of a local sports hall about 100 yards away. The... More

We showed up an hour early or so. We had to walk around for an half an hour only to find out the owner was home the whole time (we rang 4x in that time). When she saw we were there early, everything became kind of an inconvenience to her. She told us to not let in strangers (seriously? we... More

"River View" is a family run Bed and Breakfast with three guest bedrooms. We are not like a hotel with a 24 hour service desk and do not take credit or debit cards. Arrival times are between 3 pm and 6 pm. The reviewer arrived at 11 am from Limerick. As the couple were very tired I allowed them to... More

my daughter and I stayed here and found it very nice and comfortable. Expected it to be near a river, but didn't see one. Close to shopping and pubs, street parking only so it was hit or miss how close we could park to the house. The house was very beautiful and clean and our hostess was very helpful in... More
