  • "Plenty of space in property and great views but needs some updating."

    Towels very thin with big stains on a couple of them. Some rust and mildew in shower. No internet access although advertised with internet. Would only connect for a few seconds. Explained to owners but wasn’t rectified while we were there. Owners very friendly but property really needs updating and would then be 4 *

  • "What a great location!"

    So close to the lovely Whiting Bay! The accommodation was very comfortable too and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Periodically checking all was okay. Would definitely visit again and would recommend for a very relaxing, coastal stay.

  • "The owners were away, as the wife had recently suffered a stroke."

    We were disappointed by the quality of the towels and the general wear and tear on the apartment. There was no bath mat for the shower room, but in all fairness we didn't mention this to the owner's daughter. The shower gave one of us an electric shock and the daughter arranged for it to be replaced the same day. The apartment is divided from the main house by a "corridor" which was almost flooded by the heavy rain the day after we arrived. The apartment then smelt musty and damp for the rest of our stay, even though we used the electric heaters provided. The views are beautiful, but were marred by a camper van parked at the front of the house!

  • "The bedrooms were decorated nicely and had practical storage."

    The lounge was nice with comfortable settee & chairs & nice dinning table & chairs. The carpets looked new and nice. Appreciated the heaters which we used and were good. I did miss not having a bread bin & kitchen waste bin & hooks on the bathroom door. 3 things that other guests may enjoy too. This is a lovely area to stay short walk to the beach and other coastal areas nearby. Very nice owner.

  • "The property was excellent but the heating was inadequate for the time of year."

    There were 2 small oil filled radiators, one in the passage and one in a bedroom. No heating in the lounge or other bedroom or bathroom. A grab rail in the shower would be safer, but other than that it was very good very comfortable apart from the heating.

    Thanks your welcome Property Owner

  • "We were sad to leave Island View as we had an amazing holiday."

    The views from the holiday home looking across the bay were captivating with the changing colours of the sky and sea. It was great to have a choice of walks right from the front door. The property was very comfortable and homely. Helen and Declan were very welcoming, kind and friendly. We will certainly be returning.

About the location


Youghal 10 miles; Dungarvan 15 miles.

Ardmore is a delightful seaside resort and fishing village located in County Waterford on the south coast of Ireland. St. Declan founded Ireland's early Christian settlement in Ardmore, and perched on a hill is a 12th century round tower and the ruins of Ardmore Cathedral. Several more ancient ruins can be seen along a clifftop walk, which encompasses an old coastguard station, an abandoned lookout from 1939 and a shipwreck. Ardmore has been attracting tourists and visitors for a number of years and has an abundance of attractions including several beaches, shops, pubs, restaurants, hotels, a pottery studio, art studios and a playground, and not to mention the pier where you can enjoy an ice cream and observe the local hustle and bustle. There are many fantastic attractions close by such as the forests and lakes of the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains and scenic car drives on the Nire Valley Drive and the Vee Drive, all of which are within 25 miles. The magnificent estuary of the River Blackwater at Youghal offers summer boat trips. The lively seaside towns of Dungarvan and Youghal are only 15 and 10 miles away respectively and are full of heritage and culture. Kayaking, snorkelling, abseiling, surfing and fishing are available, as well as horseriding and golf. Lismore Castle, Waterford Crystal, Blarney Castle and Stone, The Jameson Whiskey Centre and the Fota Wildlife Park are also close to hand.
