This BnB is situated in very auspicious location - in front of Bay and near a small beautiful beach. The host indeed welcomed and served us very well. As I am vegetarian, the host cooked something very good for me made of Potatoes. Its truly enjoyable and relaxing place.

This B and B is well appointed clean and welcoming. The ensuite is small as others noted but it is manageable and adequate. The location with sweeping sea views is wonderful. Breakfast was excellent. Lovely walks around the area and excellent local pub with cut above food.

The most beautiful view from a room I have ever stayed in. Quite far out but so worth the drive. This area would be a fantastic place for walkers. The owners were lovely and breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the sea was amazing.

This B&B was better than I even anticipated when I booked it. We had a great room with an excellent view of the bay. The room was small, and the bathroom was tiny, but it's fine for 2 adults. We were in Ireland and the breakfast at the Sandycove House was the best breakfast we had all week. Fresh fruit,...

Overall a good stay. We stayed here 4 nights in order to attend a family friend's wedding. Place was clean, and owner was attentive to overall needs.
