Tom and Margaret were the absolute best hosts. Full of history and hospitality and a beautiful home with lovely views. Would definitely recommend for anyone staying in the Cork area!

My parents and I were fortunate enough to spend one night at this great B and B during our trip around Ireland. We were given a very warm welcome and my mother will never forget how Margaret had even arranged a birthday surprise for her! As we arrived very late at Ballymacoda, we had problems finding a place to dine but Margaret immediately offered her assistance and after making reservations, she finally lead us to a restaurant driving ahead of us in her own car. It should be mentioned that her breakfast was delicious, the rooms were spacious and the view of Margaret's and Tom's garden and the sea were spectecular! The only thing we were not happy about was that we had to leave so soon. However, we absolutely intend to spend much more time at Castle Farm when we return to Ireland.

In my four visits to Ireland, I have never stayed at the same B&B twice.........only because I like to sample as many of the B&Bs as I can.....until now! After five minutes of meeting Margaret and Tom I fell in love with them! We had so much fun at Castle Farm and Margaret was SO accommodating! We even went to church together and took Tom to the local pub! We were made to feel like part of the family immediately! With all that said, not only would we come back again, we WILL be back again - with friends! I would spend the entire vacation with Margaret and Tom if I could! Five stars are not enough! How about a million? We miss you already, Margaret and Tom!!!

WOW! This was our favorite stay the entire week. Margaret and Tom were a wealth of knowledge and information and oh so friendly! And location---we could have spent a life time staring out the window at the ocean. Great location for the Ballymaloe cooking school, which is a hidden gem! Don't even think about staying anywhere else in the area!
