This was our second trip to Ireland with the goal of returning a few more times to ensure a visit to each region and county. I'm almost skittish to share for fear the village of Roundstone will get overrun, but I must give this place it's due. If you're looking for a restful, seaside, western Ireland, Connemara region of County...

Though Island View B&B does not look like much from the outside, the inside shows that the hosts are doing everything to make their guests' stay absolutey wonderful. The house has a lot of charme and all the amenities you wish for. And although it is seemingly rather small, the room we stayed in (No. 4) was nice and large...

Great place !! Comfy bed and pillows are super soft and lovely. However, the owners here are the absolute most loveliest people we met in the town. Couldn't do enough to help and make up feel welcome. The Irish breakfast is to die for. Loved this place!!

A superbly well run, clean and comfortable place to stay in a lovely town. The whole area is full of interesting things to see and do. This B&B is well situated in terms of restaurants, cafes and general groceries. Our hosts made our stay very enjoyable and we feel it was a real highlight of our time in Ireland.

My wife and I stayed at the Island View B&B for four nights, and we could not have been more pleased. Our third floor room had a fantastic view of Inishnee and the mountains beyond, and it was comfortable, spotless, and pleasantly outfitted. Maurice, the owner, made us feel welcome and appreciated, and he provided helpful guidance that enabled us...

I'm sitting at the breakfast table of the Island View looking out at the gorgeous view and i'm just so thrilled we booked here. The breakfast is fantastic! Proper full Irish breakfast. Lovely scrambled eggs and bacon. The room is on the first floor and was the perfect size for two of us. SUPER clean. A closet for hanging clothes....

Really nice B & B. The room was "en suite" and had a tremendous view of the ocean and the "Island'. Every thing was number one and the breakfast was excellent. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here, the village is very charming

Maurice was excellent at making us welcome. Rooms clean, comfortable and fresh, Breakfast very nice and location great. Parking limited and if stairs are a trial for you then staying here would be a test. We would recommend this B & B to all. Maurice is a good person to guide you where you wish to go.
