We stayed at Bay View for 4 nights at the start of our holiday in Ireland.We have stayed at many B&Bs around Ireland and Bay View was one of the best, if not the best. We stayed in room 6, it was very quiet, overlooking the bay, the room was tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was... More

Although our arrival in Clonakilty was marred by wet weather, our stay at Bayview was wonderful. It was a short walk into town. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the atmosphere is most refined yet welcoming. The view was wonderful the sunny morning that we left and we wished we could have stayed another night. The breakfast was delicious and... More

We were referred to this accommodation in clonakilty and were not disappointed. The rooms are beautiful with clean linen towels etc provided. The area is perfect walking distance to the town. The hosts are at your assistance with nothing being a burden. Great breakfast choices. Nice quiet area. Great choice for couples or family gatherings. 5 star.

We stayed for just one evening during our anniversary trip across Ireland. This bed and breakfast is very close to the main part of town and an easy walk. The owner, Mariam, was so gracious and kind and had excellent dining and travel advise.

I haven't been in ALL of the B&Bs in West Cork, but I can't imagine that any of them could be better than Bay View. Miriam and Noreen are welcoming, friendly, great cooks...perfect hosts. Rooms are beautifully decorated, and have an abundance of storage space. And the absolute best beds! I've been to Ireland 3 times and stayed 15 times... More

Stayed three nights at Bay View House in mid-May. The arrangement of rooms, décor, accommodations, lounge, and breakfast is what you would expect from an up market, seacoast B&B. Our room faced the bay and had a queen and two singles. (While perhaps a bit crowded, it certainly could accommodate two children depending on their age.) Outside the door was... More
