What a lovely spot, with to-die-for beds & pillows and a wonderful view of the bay from our room. Light wool blankets to layer so the temperature of the bed was just right. Fruit cake & tea when we arrived, chocolates to follow - wonderfully unexpected. The guest sitting room was so comfortable and WiFi worked well. Local knowledge was...

We stayed for just one night but couldn't fault the Bay View. Right from the initial contact with Miriam to the end of the stay we were treated kindly and professionally with helpful responses to any request. A number of reviewers have mentioned the comfort of the beds and we have to add our names to that list of endorsements....

We had the pleasure to spend four nights at Bay View House when visiting Clonakilty and surrunding. We booked the Garden Suite which was absolutely superb with space, view to the green fields and with the best beds you can imagine.

We had thought we were staying at a different B & B when we first arrived at Bay View. But Miriam was generous, welcoming and kind and we soon realized we had landed at the perfect place for a stay over. Miriam and her parents have been running a B & B for decades and they know how to be...

We stayed two weeks ago for 3 nights and were made incredibly welcome by Miriam and Noreen. We had a fabulous double room with great views which was very comfortable. Miriam was so helpful with suggestions for recommended restaurants and places to visit. Breakfasts were very relaxing and beautifully prepared. Would highly recommend Bayview House, which is tucked away but...

We stayed at the Bayview for two nights in Sept and had a really great time. Marian and her mom were great hosts and it was a very quick walk to town. The room had a nice view of the bay and we could watch hooded crows, cows, swans and even a fox one night. The rooms were larger than...

This is a second review of our favourite place to stay in our favourite Irish town, Clonakilty, south of Cork. Don't miss Bayview House in Clonakilty, and book a good stay. We just finished our 5th trip and stayed four nights. You can plan easily day trips to explore the South, and return to this beautiful, convenient, well located, friendly...

Stayed two nights with Miriam and Noreen - absolutely fantastic!! Super welcome; superb room; outstanding breakfasts; very friendly atmosphere. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Have no hesitation in saying that it is the best b&b we ever stayed in and hope to visit again.
