“Best B&B ever”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

My wife,and I have been staying in Bed & Breakfasts for over 50 years and the Bay view is the best we have ever stayed in. They have thought of everything. The place is pleasant, super clean and our room (Number 6 ) was spacious if not luxurious. It made us feel we wanted to just stay inside and enjoy the surroundings and not go out. Miriam,Noreen and Tony are the most gracious hosts you could find anywhere. The food was excellent with a good variety to choose from. We cannot speak too highly of this establishment. Clonakilty is a pretty nice town as well. John & Mary Ann. Michigan, USA

Room Tip: When looking at the room make sure there is enough space for your luggage.

We stayed at the Bay View House B&B in Clonakilty for a friend's wedding during the middle of September and had the upstairs double bedroom facing the courtyard. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this B&B. Here are some comments:

Communication: Because we were coming from overseas, we had to correspond with Miriam/Noreen via email. They responded promptly and were very professional.

Location: The location is very nice and the view is spectacular. It is a 2 minute walk from a super-market, which was great for buying snacks and necessities for our trip. It is also a 10 minute walk to the downtown area where we had access to numerous shops, pubs, restaurants, etc.

Condition of Room: The entire B&B is in immaculate condition - from the grounds to the bathrooms, you can tell that the hosts take a lot of pride in their home. The bed is very comfortable and very spacious. It has everything you need for a short or long stay.

Breakfast: One word: DELICIOUS!

Hosts: The hosts (Miriam and her mother, Noreen) are very gracious hosts. They are kind and extremely accommodating. There was not one request that they could not meet and because we were a group of friends, they made sure to make us feel very much welcome and at home.

I would recommend this place to anyone who plans to stay in the Clonakilty area. There is a reason why this B&B is ranked #1 - because it is very much deserved.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces the bay.

There are no negative comments to make about Bay View House B&B. Miriam, Noreen and Tony are extremely pleasant and helpful. The facilities are excellent, the room and bed comfortable and the location very convenient in every way. It is all very clean and beautifully furnished. It was one of the best B&B's we stayed in during our 7 week holiday in the UK.

We stayed at the beautiful Bay View House for 2 nights in early Sept, Noreen, Miriam and Tony were the most gracious hosts. We had 3 rooms, all very well appointed and very comfortable. Our breakfasts were delicious. Noreen and Miriam steered us to a wonderful stroll down the streets of Clonakilty, and an entertaining evening at The Little House for pints and traditional music. All 6 of us would highly recommend Bay View House, and a visit to Clonakilty!

Room Tip: our room facing the bay had a great view.

We stayed at Bay View for two nights in early September and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable, the WiFi was quick, breakfast each morning was delicious and the ladies and gentleman of the house were just delightful! We would absolutely stay here again.

After a long day of sightseeing around Cork City we arrived at the Bay View House. Miriam and Noreen were lovely and welcoming. We felt at home right away. Our room was the best with a lovely view of the bay, comfortable beds and all the amenities. We also loved the little sitting area outside our room! I loved the home's furnishings and garden. The Bay View was within walking distance of Clonakilty which we had time to explore the next day. Would love to stay longer on our next trip.

This stop over was one of many on our visit to South West of Ireland and it was the best and will stay in our memories for a very long time. The garden and out side area is kept in prestine condition by Tony andthe in house duties was done by Noreen and her daughter. In fact the whole property was in such a high state of decoration and cleanlyness you could not find a fault if you spent days looking for one, to top it all you had a breakfast fit for a king and his Queen and our thanks go out to all concerned.

Many thanks, Sian and Dai

Room Tip: all excellent, the ones at the rear hae views of the bay
