My parents and I stayed at the Bay View in September, close to the reception for a family wedding. I can not say enough about The Driscolls. The gardens were beautiful and the welcome they gave was just as nice. We had all been booked for upstairs, but when Noreen found out my parents had trouble with stairs, she was so accommodating. She was able to give them a room off the solarium, and it was perfect for them. My room was also lovely and bright. Breakfast was delicious and the family was very friendly. I would recommend the Bay View to any traveler looking for the hospitality and comfortable stay you hope for in Ireland. Thank you to the Bay View for a very pleasant stay.

This was our second visit to Bay View House B&B and it has to be one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at. The O'Driscolls are so friendly and helpful. Our twin room had two double beds and was bright clean and spacious with many little extras - shower caps, shampoo, shower gels and soaps as well as the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. Breakfast was great with so many choices on the menu. Very well located on a quiet road and only a five minute walk to the centre of Clonakilty town with its many restaurants.
We highly recommend this bed and breakfast and will return shortly.

Room Tip: All rooms of a very high standard (stayed in one of their doubles on my last visit)

We arrive in Clonakilty after 5pm ... the tourist office was closed and we had nowhere to stay. We tried another B and B but they were full - the owner recommend that we try here - Thank goodness we did. We literally felt "rescued" by the owner. After receiving directions by phone we set off ... when we did not arrive promptly - she called us to make sure that we were not lost. Imagine our surprise when we arrived at the most wonderful B and B in all of Ireland. The room was HUGE, clean and well appointed. Tea/Coffee and biscuits in the room. An incredible water view (and cow view). The breakfast was amazing and we really enjoyed chatting with the owner and her daughter (who were so incredibly helpful) and the other guests. The only downside is that we could only stay for one night. We will be back. If you you are looking for an exceptional and memorable stay in County Cork - this is it!!!

My partner & I stayed for one night over the October bank holiday weekend. I can genuinely say this is one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed at. It was such a pleasure from start to finish. We were made to feel very welcome. The room was superb, spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Every little detail had been considered. The breakfast was outstanding and we had plenty of choice. I was surprised how close to Clonakilty town we were and yet we still had great views. I can't say enough of the hospitality of the proprietors. I would highly recommend this place as a starting point for all your West Cork travels. We sayed in other B&B's that weekend and none came even close. Thank you to Bay View for a great stay.

My wife and I have stayed here three times this year whilst attending vintage car runs/static shows. We are always made most welcome by the family run 4 star B&B.The house/rooms are always immaculate, and the gardens great. Breakfast is a delight.We wont be staying anywhere else! Sue & Mike McD.

My wife and I took up residence here for a week in mid-September and could not have selected a better B&B for our needs. We travel with lots of stuff, i.e. computers, cameras as well as the usual assortment of bags for clothes, so once we land somewhere, we unpack and stay a while and use our B&B as a jumping off point. Our gracious host provided a room that overlooked the the nearby bay which was home to a large variety of birds. (Lots of activity during in the bay during low tide). The room decor, as well as the decor of the rest of the home, was charming. Overall the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Our hostesses made us feel right a home. Wi-Fi could be accessed in the room.

Breakfasts consisted of a variety of home cooked meals, two of which we tried: a traditional Irish breakfast with blood sausage, and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, our favorite. Toast was available with jelly and preserves. There was side board with cereals, home made breads and local yogurt - a real treat. The breakfast was more than ample and kept us going until our evening meal. Excellent coffee and/or tea was served during or after the meal.

There is off street parking, next to a well appointed flower garden. Pubs and restaurants are a 5 minute walk, so not need to move the car.

Room Tip: Try for a room with windows that overlooks the bay.
