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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place has a fantastic view of the harbour and Baer Island and right behind the square where the shops, bars and restaurants are. It was clean and the beds were comfortable and it was nice and peaceful. I’m not a lover of pre-prepared breakfast...but loved the expresso machine 👍More

Had a wonderful stay at this very clean and well maintained B&B very close to the town centre yet quiet at night time. The service was excellent as well as the breakfast.

Stunning view, spotless well worth it reasonable price. A walk of 5 minutes into town, lots to see in Castletownbere. I would recommend to stay as you have full view of the town and port. The owner very helpful and great taxi service if needed.

This is an excellent b&b, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere! We stayed two nights. Our host was the lovely Olivia who was ever so welcoming and kind, lighting a lovely cosy fire for us in the evening and serving us a lovely breakfast ,including by...far the best gluten free bread I've ever had. The b&b is very central too...you can easily walk into castletownbere within a few minutes. Will return here!More

Dennis, our lovely genial host, cooked us huge breakfasts (omelettes stuffed with tomatoes, cheese and bacon) each day and in addition made his own seed laden, squash and sweet potato buckwheat bread for coeliac visitors. It was so good that all the other non coeliacs...in our group grabbed slices of it to munch as well! He even wrapped up half a loaf for me to take away for the rest of my travels. This is a great place to stay- quiet and central and a home away from home.More

Enjoyed a two night stay at Island View. Room was clean and comfortable with all necessities supplied. Breakfast was well cooked and well presented. Food excellent. Good coffee (and tea!). Warm welcome from the boss, Denis. P.S. Great to see bed linen, towels etc. blowing...on the high clothesline in the garden. Also tolerated four women having a very leisurely chatty breakfast.More

We were very impressed with the quality of cooking . One could say - it was really the best home cooking quality. The gentleman who is the host is very well organized, pleasant and hospitable and the service is great.
