Absolutely wonderful. Without a doubt -the best B&B We ever stayed in. The owners of the house understand exactly what hospitality is all about. Violet is so welcoming and her attention to details is clearly visible everywhere in the house. Superior conditions and the best breakfast We've ever had. Fresh and homemade,all served in beautiful room. We didn't want to...

From the first telephone call to make our booking until the end of our stay at Fortview House, Violet was so welcoming & warm with great attention to every detail. We stayed in a Family room, beautifully decorated, original features, lovely size & refreshing view onto fields. Great location for exploring the south west coast by car, as too far...

This place is a gem and is best described as a boutique B&B with the personal touch. We (my wife and I) couldn't have been made more welcome, the room we were given was spotless and beautiful, and the breakfast was legendary. Home baking and freshly squeezed fruit juices make this even more special. All the extra touches like exclusive...

My parents stayed here last week. We bought it for them as a birthday present for my Dad and it was recommended by another B+B in Toormore where they had stayed before. They were thrilled when I spoke to them on the phone . Violet and family made them feel very welcome. They stayed four days and were sad to...

We only stayed one night, but this was my favorite B&B of all the ones we tried in Ireland, and there was stiff competition on our itinerary! We arrived late afternoon after a long drive with several stops along the coast from Kinsale and a long walk in the drizzle in Schull. Violet greeted us heartily with French press coffee,...

I stayed at Violet's wonderful B&b while on a family holiday to Ireland. It was the cheapest place we stayed but by far the best. Great rooms all individually decorated. Spotlessly clean and comfortable but what set Fortview apart from it's competition was Violet's wonderful welcome ( a pot of the best tea and carrot cake). Her breakfasts are amazing...
