A fantastic location in the heart of Baltimore and a perfect stopping off point to the islands. A warm welcome from Sandra and Ronnie, even including me in their evening down at the harbour bar. Comfortable accommodation and a hearty breakfast hit the spot perfectly. I'll be back!

We visited Fastnet House in 2001 and I still remember it with fondness, as if it were yesterday! We were traveling with friends from Pretoria, South Africa, and happened upon Fastnet House quite by accident. We had been driving down the West Coast of Ireland, from Galway, just stopping wherever our fancy took us. Drove the Ring of Kerry after...

Baltimore is a beautiful village and this is a very good place to stay. Close to everything with very friendly host. The room was good, although the wifi wasn't great. The beds were comfy. Bring your own shampoo. We enjoyed staying here!

Spent a lovely two days in Fastnet House in Baltimore. It's in a great location, the room was spotless, the bed was amazing bed (slept like a log) and the host was a delight. Highly recommend a visit here.

From the very warm welcome to the charming, characterful rooms. Fastnet House is a wonderful place to spend time, either as a base for exploring the local country side or to just "Chill Out" in the friendly town of Baltimore. We stayed in a large double room on the front & found it to be very comfortable. Sandra & Ronnie...
