It's a cosy house, with plenty of space in the bedrooms, mine had two large comfortable double beds, an ensuite and huge built in wardrobe cleverly separated from the bedroom through a cute little archway. The breakfast menu had a... More

We had a really lovely stay at the Bay View B&B and would definitely go back. Such friendly hosts, a really beautiful and spacious room, and a knock out breakfast. Miriam could not do enough for us - helping us with taxis and recommending places to visit.

Traveling along the coast line of County Cork and losing track of time, my buddy and I were just about to give up finding suitable accommodations. Then just out of the corner of my friend’s eye, he noticed the iconic blue Irish B&B network sign belonging to this quaint house right off N71 leading into Clonakilty. It was just about... More

We had an immaculate upper level room with views over the river. Breakfast was the best that we had during our stay in Ireland. Our hosts went above and beyond to give us helpful travel information and recommendations for restaurants. We plan to return to Bay View House at some point in the future. Thank you so much for a...

We toured Ireland by car and this was the very best guest house that we stayed in. It is situated on the edge of Clonakilty, a short walk to a variety of shops, restaurants and bars. The rooms are bright and spacious with excellent facilities and there is a generous choice at breakfast. There are ample lounge areas and a... More

Exceptional B&B, beautiful room, great location for walking into Clonakilty and reasonable price. What more could you ask for in beautiful West Cork? Great Restaurants nearby. Nora and Miriam could not have made our stay more enjoyable than it was; fantastic hostesses.
