Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our host was friendly and helpful, and we liked the easy parking at the B&B. Our two rooms were very clean and met our needs. Breakfast was tasty and there were several options from which to choose. Fortunately there is a small pub with good food that’s about a 15-min countryside walk from the property; otherwise you will need to drive to a restaurant.

Stay here for a gorgeous view of Ireland's south coast. Request a room with a view. The owner is gracious and makes a wonderful breakfast. Go for the Fiddler's Fest in Baltimore and bio-luminescent kayaking. A real sweet spot!

Beautiful view. Comfortable, spacious rooms and fabulous host. Loved the warm and happy breakfasts with lots of options to choose from. There’s also nice pub/ restaurant next door . Although December is not a good season to visit Baltimore yet we loved our walks and relaxed in the sun. If you visit Baltimore you must stay at Rathmore House.

The home is modern and lovely and the rooms are spacious. I wish we had a room with the front view because it is EXCEPTIONAL!!!! But we didn’t. There are electric blankets for heat and the shower ran hot but the bathroom was FREEZING and the heat was NA in the room as well. I couldn’t get the blanket turned off in the middle of the night so it was a slow roast until morning and the pillows are flat as pancakes. The bed could use an extra layer of softness as our hips and shoulders were all numb by morning. But the morning brought a delightful surprise when we came down for breakfast. The food was the BEST we’d ever had in any BNB. And when we walked out the front door the view took our breath away. I have to say our hostess was lovely and she really does a marvelous job of making sure everything is clean and tidy and welcoming. She is a fantastic cook and very efficient. She runs a tip top house! Just make sure you ask for the rooms with the front view!!

Brilliant host and a very spacious room for the price. The facilities are modern and tasteful for a lovely country home. I would definitely recommend Rathmore House to anyone, my partner and I had a lovely stay and we just wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful B and B, lovely clean room with a nice ensuite. The host is so welcoming and accommodating and breakfast was really excellent. We were attending a wedding nearby and we were facilitated to arrive late.
