I had a whirlwind week visiting my daughter and we decided to do a mini roadtrip. We hadn't planned initially to go so far south but we are so very glad we did. The Atlantic Way is a beautiful drive along the coast, and this B&B holds a fantastic spot in Baltimore with lovely views, close to town, and very...

The accommodation was great, especially the homemade bread, scones and jam. The room was comfortable and spacious, it was clean and well looked after. The staff friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the area, giving good suggestions about where to eat. You need to have transport as there is no where within safe walking distance.

Rathmore House was the first B&B my partner and I stayed in during our trip through Ireland. We could not have been anymore delighted by the experience. To begin with, the hostess was incredibly warm and hospitable. The view from the house is absolutely stunning. I could sit on the porch all day and stare out into the bay. Extremely...

This B&B is really nice, calm and peaceful ! The view from the house is just amazing. The host is really welcoming and kind. She kindly advised us to go to the Sibin Pub (not far from the house) which is a very good place to have dinner and a drink. Besides, the rooms are confortable and the breakfast is...

Great view from this lovely Bed and Breakfast. A friendly welcome and a nice room for our family. We felt comfortable in the common room. The breakfast was very good. We only stayed there for a night, but can certainly recommend this B&B.

Family of four stayed one night in July. An old fashioned B&B which could probably do with some updating but an excellent view of Baltimore Harbour. Marguerite was a very warm welcoming host and made an excellent breakfast with home-made bread. We had a massive family room with an extra bed so absolutely no complaints with the size. Would recommend.
