car park and outside of house scruffy and uncared for. the carpets and paint work were tired with damp spots. it took a while to realise that this is not a b&b in the strict sense as it is not the owners home and obviously empty and unheated a lot of the time. adequate but not recommended.

Because they were quiet when we stayed we got the rooms with the best views. Beautiful Views! Woke up to Castletownbere on a beautiful August morning. Tim and Mary were very friendly and laid back. They served up a delicious Full Irish Breakfast in the morning.

I came on the bus from Cork City. Mary who runs the place together with her husband Tim had given me the advice to tell the busdriver where I wanted to go, so that I could get off the bus very close to the place. The restaurant is closed now, but the B&B continues. It was a warm welcome, they... More

The Cottage Heights is a wonderful B&B/Restaurant. We have stayed here on several occasions while visiting Castletownbere, this summer however the restaurant part does not seem to be running which is a bit of a disappointment. The rooms of this B&B are all en-suite, well kept and very comfortable. The Breakfast menu is a bit limited but still has nice... More

The reception was correct but not as warm as other B&B's we have been to. The room has a great ocean view view with much space,clean but not well maintained. The bed was... More

We stayed here for one night whilst touring Ireland. The room was comfortable and clean and the view over the harbour was amazing. The breakfast compared to other B&Bs we stayed at during our trip was quite poor both in terms of options and quality. We also had to wait for 20 minutes when we arrived at the B&B (at... More

We, a group of five stayed there last week, arrived late in the day. They made every effort and provided us with clean and comfortable accomodations. We are not exagerating when we say that the food was the best we had in Ireland. We highly recommend them.
