We spent two delightful nights at Castle Farm. The views toward the sea and the lighthouse were mesmerizing. There are nearby ruins to explore. The owners were very helpful with suggestions on what to see and where to eat. WiFi requires some patience, only available in the parlor. Breakfast was excellent.

Wonderful B & B with a beautiful view of the ocean and the lighthouse off of Ballycotton. Margaret was an absolute joy as a host. Great breakfast and plenty of very helpful advice regarding what to see and how to get around the southern coast. Highly recommend for very pleasurable, authentic Irish B & B experience.

Margaret and Tom were wonderful hosts, lots of good information about the area, and we learned quite a bit about local farming practices. Now we know where Jameson's gets all their barley. The rooms were spacious and had great views of the water. Very peaceful setting, and a delicious breakfast to start the day. We would definitely stay there again.

We were amazed at the breath taking view from Castle Farm. In just a short walk we were on the coast watching waves crash in. We really appreciated the tips on what to see and how to get places. Don't miss staying at this B and B.
