I stayed here just for one night as I was working and just passing through the area. I was warmly welcomed by the staff who were very friendly and chatty. The food was wholesome and delicious, I had dinner and breakfast during my stay. I stayed in winter so the weather was wild but it is a beautiful place and... More

I stayed 1 night in early November. Friendly landlady Mary, who was very welcoming. Beautifully furnished room and spotlessly clean. Had the crab and smoked salmon salad for dinner, large portions using local caught produce. Absolutely delicious. Enjoyed a pint of guinness in their traditional bar, with a real fire burning turf adding to the atmosphere. Sleep came easily with... More

Our stay at the Bay View B & B was excellent. There were three of us to share a room, two double beds and a single and decorated beautifully. The view from the room of the Atlantic added to our delightful stay. It was our first time there as we have family in the area and highly recommend it.

There were three of us to share a room and hadn't anything booked, so we just dropped in to see if there was any availability.
