Maurice not only sent us our forgotten garments back home but definitely makes a superb breakfast whether salmon or full Irish. The room had a splendid view directly onto the sea and a wonderful pub is only 100 yards away. We'd love to come again.

My sister, her two children and I recently stayed for a week at Abby's cottage in Roundstone and cannot praise it highly enough.

Maurice and Ashling were incredible generous and helpful and really made us feel at home.

The cottage is fantastic and incredibly pretty. It was perfect for the children as they were able to go on their own to the shops or post office which made them feel 'big'!

The cottage has everything you could ask for and is really a home rather than a holiday cottage.

We are already trying to arrange dates for next year so that we can go back again for another week. The beaches are superb and the scenery is breathtaking.

Thank you so much Maurice and Ashling for all your hospitality. We loved our stay.

Regards.

Excellent B&B in the heart of the village. The owner was very helpful in all matters on the area. Spotless room with excellent beds and towels any 5 star hotel would be proud of. This topped off with a top class breakfast makes this B&B one that can hold its own in any company and can easily be recommended.

Room Tip: ask fro room with sea views

Roundstone is a quiet little town 2 hours west of Galway. We were there in June, before the summer crowds arrived. We stayed two nights in the Island View, using it as our base to explore the Connemara region. Maurice was very accomodating and served a wonderful Irish breakfast. Our room had a view of the island. It was small but very clean. Like most Irish B&B's, the bathroom lacked towel bars, a place for toiletries, and a soap dish in the shower. Must be an American thing. We will certainly return on future trips!

Room Tip: Rooms are small so if you have a lot of luggage, request the largest room. The third floor rooms are...

Island View is a cute little guesthouse in an adorable little town on the coast of Connemara. We reserved 2 rooms, one was a little small, but both had great views of the water. The owner was very helpful, and took the time to go over a map of the area and provide recommendations of things to see/do. Wish we had another day in Roundstone and at this B&B.

The position of this B&B is excellent, right in the centre of the small village of Roundstone. Room was small but comfortable. There was no room for a chair. Best thing about the room was that it faced the sea and had a great view. Bathroom was good, although it could do with a soap holder in the shower. Breakfast was well cooked. Unfortunately the wifi did not work during our stay. We enjoyed our stay at this B&B and would certainly return.

Wonderful! Had the most comfortable nights sleep of our trip in one of the most comfortable, well presented B&B's in Ireland! Friendly, inviting and breakfast was great. Coudn't ask for a better B&B and would head back to Island View in a heartbeat
