“Nice B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2008

We spent one night and Island View and enjoyed it. The two rooms we had were both very clean as were the bathrooms. It's a nice quiet location. The shower pressure was great. Breakfast was delicious and there were many options. Didn't see the owner until breakfast the following morning. The drive getting into the place is a challenge but the view once you get there is beautiful. We sat in the front yard with cocktails and watched the sun set over the mountains!

We spent three happy days in Castletownbere and in the past have stayed at other establishments. The Island View House was far superior due not only to the lovely breakfasts for which it is famous, but to the friendliness of Dennis (Denny) and his very lovely assistant Helen. If you book I don't think you wil be disappointed..

My husband and I were traveling Ireland by car and Island View House was recommended and booked for us by another B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with included a warm and informative conversation with the proprietor, Denis. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful and included the best white fish we had while in Ireland. The large bowl of freshly cut fruit was delicious.

We spent 4 nights in Island View last year and couldn't visit Ireland again this year without spending a night there! This is an excellent ++ establishment! The rooms are suberb and the breakfasts are out of this world. Denis is a wonderful host and full of information (even if my wife declined the suggestion that she climb Hungry Hill before breakfast - she certainly couldn't after!!) If you want a special treat...ask for the Dingle Suite. It will cost a few Euro more but more than worth the extra.
