Looking forward to going back again at a future date.

Ard na Gaoithe was beautiful and Tríona was an excellent hostess. I had intended to get a full Irish breakfast, but the fruit option was so tasty, I never did! Looking forward to going back again at a future date.

A really excellent B+B. Quiet, absolutely clean, a wonderful breakfast of fruits and cereals (cooked breakfast by request). Fabulous range of books and Triona was a lovely host. The surprise of freshly baked scones on arrival was a treat.

Very comfortable, ultra clean and a good powerful shower

Very comfortable, ultra clean and a good powerful shower to massage the aches away after a long day of hiking. Triona is a wealth of knowledge and advice on how to best navigate the island and serves a hearty breakfast of assorted fruits, juice, yoghurt, granola and toast. Her welcome scones are delicious too. Highly recommend a visit.

The tranquility of solitude

The tranquility of solitude Oscar Wilde couldn’t describe the beauty and rawness of Arn Na Gaoithe cape clear west cork. Stunning location matched by a truly Michelin star themed breakfast and genuine honest hospitality from Triona and family .The breeze was calm the water still the sun adorned the astonishing scenery like Kumi Yamashita on canvas .Isolation and friendship in tandem, .There is nirvana on earth imagine no more and go .

If you want to visit a idyllic place, go to Cape Clear B&B Ard na Gaoithe.

We stayed for 3 days in the B&B. It is a fantastic place to come home after a day of walking on the Island. A nice room with good beds. The breakfast is excellent; one of the best you can get. And last but not least: Triona is a perfect host. If you want to visit a idyllic place, go to Cape Clear B&B Ard na Gaoithe. Thanks Triona

Splendid stay in every way

Don McDermott recommends Cape Clear Island B&B Ard na Gaoithe Cape Clear Island, West Cork· Splendid stay in every way but Triona is the most remarkable host and woman of talent, knowledge and sharing. From speaking Irish with my son to her lovely dogs the experience is unforgettable. Thoughtful amenities · Quiet rooms · Spacious rooms

Review from Matt B! 2022

Faultless - communication, assistance & advice, welcome, comfort and the food…! Actually there is a fault - Triona is the perfect host and over-fed me! Gorgeous island and I couldn’t think of a better base from which to explore it. Thank you! Thoughtful amenities · Quiet rooms


Fantastic breakfast with lots of choice

Margaret Davis/ Trip advisor 5 stars! Delightful Bed and Breakfast on Cape Clear Island. Lovely friendly, helpful and informative host. Comfortable and very clean bedrooms and ensuite. Fantastic breakfast with lots of choice from full irish to French toast. Covid protocols in place without fuss. And last but not least a colourful cottage garden.

Scrumptious Breakfasts

Thank you to @capeclearbnb for hospitality as Gaeilge and to Tríona for scrumptious breakfasts each morning. This idyllic island is the perfect antidote to the pandemic. #westcorkislands #pure_cork #weekendvibes #atlanticisland

Magical Getaway

Magical Getaway overlooking South Harbour Through the beautiful flower garden, tea, coffee and home baking if desired on arrival. Tip top bedroom en-suite with access to lounge room with TV, books and fire! Breath-taking views of South Harbour and surrounding countryside to greet you in the morning. Massive home cooked breakfast to set you up for the day, which should include a walk up to the old lighthouse and signal tower. Stunning! Worth the trek up the perpendicular hills of Cape Clear for the stunning perspective. Sparkling water included.

The garden in front of the B&B is incredibly lovely-full of colour and tumbling flowers. The owner's daughter welcomed us with tea and cake and looked after us so well.

THE Place to stay on Cape Clear Island

Wow! Lovely, comfy, clean and kind hosts. What's not to like about this lovely B&B?The Shower is a dream, the breakfast to die for,and a cute little dog jumping about. Sweet peas in the front and vegetables in the back, up a hill that makes your heart beat. Everything is grand! Books,Wi-fi and lovely hosts!

'So Peaceful'

Stayed here with my partner was greeted very warmly a and given lots of information about the island. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent would put most hotels around the country to shame!

The Talking Goose - Kind review from Tripadvisor member

One of the nicest B and B I have ever stayed with...

Ard na Gaoithe is one of the nicest B and B I have ever stayed with. Cape Clear is the perfect place to switch off and relax and staying with Ard na Gaoithe made the trip more enjoyable! Bhí sé an-dheas an Ghaeilge a labhairt le Bean an Tí. Mholfainn do dhaoine cúpla lá a chaitheamh in Ard na Gaoithe chun a scíth a ligean.

...breakfast...was one of the best I've ever had in Ireland. Highly recommended!

Spent one night here in early February. Eileen welcomed us like family. Good family, that is! The complementary tea and scones upon arrival were freshly baked. The room was clean and comfortable. And the breakfast next morning was one of the best I've ever had in Ireland. Highly recommended!

Top marks for top of the hill!

This was my second time to stay with Eileen and her family in Ard na Gaoithe on beautiful Cape Clear Island. From the quayside you follow a steep hill to the house and as you walk through the garden gate, a flower lined path leads you to the front door. The first impression is that you are approaching a little cottage but, once inside, you find that there is all the space and privacy that you might expect in a really good hotel. The ensuite rooms are comfortable and quiet, my room had a view of an old flower filled rowing boat in the garden and beyond that, the sight of the blue sea shimmering in the distance. The care to detail around the house was very impressive and best of all, the food was excellent, served with a smile and with any information that you might like to have regarding the island. Eileen and her family couldn't have been more welcoming, this was an excellent base from which to explore the island and, in my case, to take part in the wonderful Cape Clear International Storytelling Festival. I would be very happy to return anytime!
