We returned to Island View this year for the second time. From the moment we inquired about booking Imelda was friendly and welcoming. Our room was perfect and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was as good as we remembered and the staff were really helpful when it came to recommendations on local things to do and places to go. We will definitely return in the future to Glengarriff and won't hesitate returning to Island View.
Myself and my partner stayed in Island view, and what can I saw. We absolutely loved it!
From the moment we arrived Imelda and Jim were extremely friendly and accommodating.
The rooms were perfect and included and ensuite with shower, plenty of sockets and a really comfortable bed!
The food was absolutely delicious and exactly what we needed in the morning!
We can't fault it and can't wait to come back again soon. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Glengarriff.
Our stay at Island View house B&B was perfect. Dealing with Imelda was amazing with quick responses to messages and she was very willing to do anything to make our stay more comfortable. Check in on arrival was perfect and she even gave us a lift to the wedding we were attending which was 15mins away. The accommodation in The Island view house B&B was also perfect with a big comfortable bed and a lovely view out to Garnish Island to wake up to. The breakfast was out of this world with locally sourced products been used which all added to the amazing weekend we had in Glengarriff. I would highly recommend a stay a stay at this beautiful house in a beautiful location
