B&B Reviews
We were already the second time there. Simply brilliant, the location right on the Ring of Kerry, Skellig Ring and at St. Finian's Bay. Bridie, the owner, is so nice, helpful and accommodating. The rooms was very nice with views of the sea. Very good breakfast with great view in the breakfast-room. This time we had the small house in the backyard alone for us, just beautiful.

This is a beautiful site and you couldn't find nicer folks to stay with. The room is wonderful and we left the window open so we could hear waves crashing all night. We will go back!

Beautiful, restful B & B with wonderful hosts. Bridie and Jack are very welcoming and the breakfasts were delicious. We spent three nights and enjoyed visiting the chocolate factory just down the road, touring Valentia and driving the crazy lane ways. We used this location as a base for touring the Ring of Kerry.

A wonderful place in a great location and Bridie was a terrific hostess. The location was quiet and peaceful immediately across from a stunning little beach with a glimpse of the Skelligs. The room was very good as was the delicious breakfast. Bridie was amazingly helpful and at the last minute was able to secure us a spot on the boat visiting Skellig Michael. Would love to return and, if so, would make Beach Cove B&B a major attraction.

Our stay at Beach Cove was very short, as we arrived late and left early. But Bridie was a lovely host, full of enthusiasm and warmth. We had hoped to ferry to Skellig Michael and thought we couldn't get onto a boat; then we learned that Bridie had made reservations for us. That trip was a highlight of our time in Ireland, and we owe it all to her. We would recommend her B&B to anyone.

A beautiful room and stunning location, with friendly reception. Breakfast was fine, although I would have benefitted from a menu detailing the options for the cooked breakfast, since the 'Full Irish' was not what I expected, and thus I was slightly disappointed. Had I known what was in a 'Full Irish', I would have chosen something different.

Absolutely beautiful location, and we could see Skellig Michael from the window of our room and from the windows of the breakfast room. Amazing! Hostess was absolutely charming and helpful in all aspects. We had come in late that afternoon, and she gave us the perfect recommendation to go to for lunch. Could not be happier!

Why is it not possible to give 10 stars for location it is exactly, as seen in the picture above!! This place is a true gem, everything was perfect!! The room - super cozy with incredible sea views and the sound of the ocean as a lullaby. The owners - very friendly and helpful, prepared a delicious Irish breakfast for us and kept the freshly baked pancakes coming! Five star!! We are really not getting paid for this review, it was simply a wonderful stay at the Beach Cove. We will be back!

This was such an excellent location for us during our vacation in Ireland. Bridie was the perfect host, the room was spotless, and what a great Irish breakfast. If your looking for a quiet, lovely place to stay for a few days, this is it! We could not have asked for anything better. Thanks to Bridie and her husband for allowing us to share their home, and arranging our excursions in the area.

My husband and I stayed here during one night on our honeymoon. It was such the perfect break from all the tourist-y things we had been doing. If you plan on staying anywhere on the Ring of Kerry I suggest staying here. It was the perfect location...the beach was just a few steps away and had a beautiful view of Skellig Michael. Birdie was a wonderful host and suggested some wonderful places to go during our visit. Just a short drive from Portmagee where we went for dinner. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Our stay at the Beach Cove was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The O'Connors were very gracious. Though we arrived at the inn well before check-in, our room was ready for us. Information about the area was freely given and arrangements for our outing to Skellig Michael were made by Bridie. Breakfasts were generous and delicious and were served in their beautiful dining room with a view. My husband and I look forward to returning to the Beach Cove again someday. We will highly recommend this lovely get-away to friends and family.

Beach Cove is an absolute gem! It is located directly across the street from a bay, which the breakfast room overlooks. Our rooms the triple, suite 1 I believe also had one room that overlooked the bay. The hosts were extremely helpful in recommending nearby restaurants, booking us a tour to Skellig Michael, and even making a homemade hot chocolate made with chocolate from the Skellig Chocolate factory with my daughter's breakfast. This is a clean, attractive & memorable B&B and I look forward to the opportunity to stay here again.

This place was terrific. The room was very nice, spacious, with a small window that opened out to the ocean. It was away from any populated areas, 4 miles from the small town of Portmagee, our destination, over a narrow, winding road topping Cumanaspic hill. About the same distance from Ballanskelligs to the south. Very dark and quiet at night, nothing but the sound of the ocean. Great hosts, hooked me up with the boat ride out to Skellig Michael. The food was good, house was beautiful, hosts were friendly and informative. I would love to stay here again, maybe for a longer period of time.

We had a wonderful stay Beach Cove. The location is absolutely stunning. We felt welcomed immediately and our room was very clean and comfortable. We were hoping to visit the Skellig islands and Bridie made the arrangements for us. She is a wonderful host and the food was very tasty. If you are lucky enough to be passing through this area, it is completely worthwhile to stay more than just one night. I would recommend you book at beach cove. We stayed for two nights, the price is extremely affordable and you will enjoy every moment.

Three ladies stayed here September 6th for the night. Bridie was exactly what a hostess should be, warm, caring, and helpful. Our two rooms were lovely and clean, the shower hot, and the breakfast a happy affair. We had a lovely chat at breakfast which included her husband and our welcome was warm and sincere. Only one negative, and nothing to do with the B&B...... Not one pub in this lovely Financial Bay area, so if you want a nightcap at a local town be very careful driving on these narrow roads. We WILL visit again! Thanks Bridie and Jack from the Florida ladies.

Me and my party of three had a fantastic stay at the Beach Cove B&B. We stayed for only one night and regretted not being able to spend more time there. The location was stellar, right on a beach and right in the middle of fantastic scenery. We were booked into a triple room in the outhouse, which had all the amenities we could have asked for and was clean and beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and the landlady very helpful and friendly. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

We found this gem on the B&B website. Location was amazing, practically on the beach. Was a little bit off the beaten path but I think that's kind of the point. The owner, Bridie, was very hospitable with not only our accommodations but also with area attractions. We very much felt at home. Room was clean and comfortable. If we find ourselves in this part of the world again, we will definitely stay at Beach Cove!

I submitted an inquiry through your website. The B&B responded with an email and a reference number. So I went back to your website with the reference number and booked a one night stay with the Beach Cove B&B. I went back to your website a week later and reviewed our confirmation. Upon arriving at the Beach Cove B&B we were informed that your website was very misleading and a confirmation and booking reference from your website does not mean that the Beach Cove B&B has "accepted our confirmation". The owner was by no means kind about the situation and kept telling me that it was our fault for not contacting her directly. The Beach Cove B&B should be removed from your website!
