Aisling & Maurice are amazing hosts, who live next door to the B & B with their children. Aisling greeted us with warm fresh scones & a lovely pot of tea before showing us to our upstairs room at the rear of the building. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable.

Spent last night at Island View and it was a thoroughly delightful experience. The beds were very comfortable and the room (a triple) was roomy enough for the two of us and our adult son. Breakfast was excellent and you must have the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Delicious, with salmon that truly melts in your mouth! Our hosts were... More

Our hosts, Maurice & Aisling were very welcoming, gracious, and accommodating. They listened to our interests; then provided perfect advice & directions! Our view was incredible with two windows overlooking the wide harbor across the street & the colorful buldings looking down main street. We spent two nights and enjoyed the home-baked scones & bread.

Our stop in the Island View B & B was a late decision. We were greeted by Aisling who was efficient, friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely, clean and spacious. Everything was to a high class. Her recommendation for dinner in adjacent Roundstone House Hotel was equally perfect. Breakfast was served in a lovely relaxed format. Plenty of servings... More

We stayed one night and thought the place was very welcoming and friendly. The room we stayed had a nice harbour view and beds are comfortable. The breakfast was amazing both my husband's full Irish and my fruit and yogurt. Fantastic and great value for money.
