Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 22, 2011

We had a lovely two days. Mrs. O'Driscoll gave us a wonderful breakfast, and she offered extra services without our requesting them, and then she refused any payment for them. Our room had a lovely view of the harbour. The B&B is suitable for families as well as couples.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view.

We were visitng Cork with our small dog in West Cork and needed to find pet friendly accomodation. There was no problem here which was great and we were made to feel very welcome. The room had a lovely view over Baltimore, you would need a car to get into Baltimore for the evening. Excellent breakfast too. Will definitely be back.

Comfortable large B&B, with views over Baltimore to die for. Owner Margarite very welcoming. About 30 mins walk into lovely Baltimore, but only 10 mins drive. Better still is only 10 mins walk to pub with fantastic food.

We had barely pulled up on the huge drive when we were greeted by Marguerite. Tea and freshly made scones and cakes were served within minutes of arrival. Beautiful house with large rooms tastefully decorated. The view across the bay from our bedroom window was simply stunning. No hesitaition in recomending this B & B.

We have just returned from two nights at the Rathmore House B&B in Baltimore, Ireland, The family run B&B could not have been more welcoming and kind to us. We had a double room with a gorgeous panoramic view across the fieids and bay, good en-suite bedroom.
We were greeted by Marguerite, who made us a pot of tea (lovely willow pattern tea cups, just like my grandmother used to have) and some delicious home made scones.
Breakfast was delicious! We ate full Irish cooked breakfast, grapefruit, cheeseboard and cereal, accompanied by Marguerite's home made scones and sodabread, which saw us through till the mid afternoon!
The next day she kindly sent her son to pick us up from Baltimore and drive us back to the B&B as it was busy with the regatta and the taxi driver of the town was already fully booked.
On the way home, after checking out, we were unfortunate enough to get a puncture. Marguerite's husband (who built the gorgeous Georgian style house back in 1987) and son once again came to the rescue and helped us on our way!
We would absolutely recommend this B&B and would certainly stay there again!

Rathmore House was in a quiet location, yet close to several nice restaurants, pubs, and other attractions. Marguerite gave me a couple of excellent restaurant recommendations. Good breakfasts, and a very pleasant living room in which to relax and enjoy a fire.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room.

Upon arival from a long trip we experienced relaxation. The home was so warm and friendly. Not a hot spot for entertainment but exactly what we need for the first night. Which turned into a second night based on relaxation and easy drive to cork city and back. We were also able to stop at Kinsale on the way back from the Blarney Castle. The Beacon at the point was simply amazing.
