Brian and Jacky's place is amazing! The grounds are beautiful; filled with flowers and trees. They have a lovely home with a gorgeous view! The food is incredible (must try Jacky's homemade muffins fro breakfast!) and Jacky was very helpful in helping us plan for things to do on the Island. We were hoping to see Skellig Michael but the weather didn't allow for it. I'm returning to Ireland this June with hopes and seeing the Skellig's and will surely be staying at the Atlantic Villa! I highly recommend you do too!

It is always a pleasure to read a review form a happy guest who appreciates the efforts we go to help them to enjoy their stay on this lovely island! We look forward to your visit in June and will help to arrange that special trip to The Skelligs (fingers crossed for suitable conditions)

The Atlantic Villa stay was a highlight of our trip! We stayed here during the off season, just after New Years. Even though we were there during a bad storm, and damage was caused to some of the property, the owners still managed to serve the best Irish breakfast (with local goat cheese and honey) right on time! They were very hospitable, and gave us a some good insight to the island. The next day was beautiful and the was lots to see and do. Would stay here again for certain!

Valentia Island has a beauty in all kinds of weather even in storms ! Sitting by the cosy peat fire can be such a well earned treat after a day outside. Thanks for kind words and we look forward to a return visit even though you were a long way from home.

We spent one week there during new year..rented a small lovely apartment. Brian and Jackie made our time very special! One week later we came back with another couple from Colombia and stay one night. It is just the right place to be! We cannot imagine staying in another place in Valentia Island!

As always I really enjoyed my time in Brian and Jacky's house. Hot seaweed bath, sauna and a jump in to the sea. A few nice pints in the local and a really tasty breakfast. The rooms are warm and clean and comfortable. The view from the front windows over the near island to Dolus head is amazing.
I will be back.

Hi Peter
Thanks for having such fun at our place! To see you and your brave family jumping in to wild Atlantic Ocean and then back to warm up in bath and the sauna said it all. We always enjoy your visits and look forward to the next one.

this review is a little late as we stayed there a couple of years ago, but it sticks out in or minds as a wonderful time of peace and relaxation, as it was part of a busy tour of Ireland.
Our host and hostess were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us, our room was beautiful with a sea view, en suite bathroom, the breakfasts were excellent, basically i couldn't find fault with this villa. so much so we stayed an extra 2 nights!

A turf fire and a warm, cosy house can easily combat those dreary November evenings! We look forward to your next visit.

Lovely place to stay and visit the surroundings. Great offer of breakfasts with flexible times. The room was cosy and charming and we loved the fact that there was no tv as what we wanted was switching off.
The atmosphere was welcoming and well kept by Jackie. She kindly gave us a lot of information about the area and places to visit. She has the ability to mix antique and modern styles making the whole house an enjoyable place even when you don't do anything.

Room Tip: Room III and see the bathtub.
