The accommodation was great, especially the homemade bread, scones and jam. The room was comfortable and spacious, it was clean and well looked after. The staff friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the area, giving good suggestions about where to eat. You need to have transport as there is no where within safe walking distance.

The owners could not of been more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, even gave us a small cheese board to go with our bought bottle of wine!. Accomodation was very good, clean and tidy. Had clean towels every day. Tea and coffee making facilities plus a fresh water jug everyday. All in all a wonderful place to stay with...

Rathmore House was the first B&B my partner and I stayed in during our trip through Ireland. We could not have been anymore delighted by the experience. To begin with, the hostess was incredibly warm and hospitable. The view from the house is absolutely stunning. I could sit on the porch all day and stare out into the bay. Extremely...

Great view from this lovely Bed and Breakfast. A friendly welcome and a nice room for our family. We felt comfortable in the common room. The breakfast was very good. We only stayed there for a night, but can certainly recommend this B&B.

Family of four stayed one night in July. An old fashioned B&B which could probably do with some updating but an excellent view of Baltimore Harbour. Marguerite was a very warm welcoming host and made an excellent breakfast with home-made bread. We had a massive family room with an extra bed so absolutely no complaints with the size. Would recommend.

We have been to Baltimore a number of times with our elderly father, but this is the first time we have stayed at the Rathmore. It was wonderful. It's about 1.5 miles outside of Baltimore, but it has stunning views of Baltimore harbour. Our rooms were fantastic and the location was ideal. We were attending a family funeral so we...
