Castle Farm and owners Margaret and Tom were just charming...the views of the coast and Ballycotton were spectacular! Margaret was the perfect host...she loves her home, family, country and everything (their daughter's Irish Step Dancing trophies and medals were throughout their home)! She was full of Irish enthusiasm! Margaret sent us to Garryvoe Hotel for a delicious meal; upon arrival back to her house she invited us to sit and chat where we learned about our surroundings...woke up to an amazing breakfast! Margaret was so kind to give us both her scone and brown bread recipes! How sweet is she?! So now Margaret's baked goods will live on in New York! Stay at Castle Farm...you will be so happy!

We spent one night at Castle Farm. Margaret pointed us towards the Garryboe Beach which was magnificent. Our room overlooked Ballycotton Bay. We also visited the local pubs just off the beach. The food was great.

Tom and Margaret were absolutely wonderful, helpful hosts. Our room looked out over the Atlantic Ocean and was just lovely. Breakfast was delicious. Margaret gave us such helpful information about the area that we found Ballycotton to be one of our absolute favorites. Great music at the Pub in Ballycotton and the Cliff Walk is a must.

Margaret and her daughter, Siobhan, were wonderful. We had a fantastic room overlooking the bay and they were very accommodating; doing laundry for us at the halfway point of our trip. The food was great and Margaret was a font of knowledge about what to see in the area. My wife and I had a great stay at Castle Farm!

We enjoyed Margaret and her wealth of information for our trip up to Dublin. She even provided us an alarm clock so that we could be off in time to catch our flight home. The sunset was spectacular over the peninsula running down to the ocean and our room quite comfortable.
