My 80-year old mother, 12 year old daughter, and I stayed at Island View House for one night in April and were very happy with our choice. We were warmly welcomed with fresh scones and tea/coffee. While it was early in the season and not a lot was open, we were given a nice recommendation for dinner at the nearby hotel, which was very casual and perfect after a long day of travel. Our plans ended up changing at the last minute and Aisling could not have been more gracious with our changes. Breakfast was delicious and the common guest room was a pleasant place to eat. I would definitely recommend Island View House.

Roundstone is a beautiful little town. The proximity to the other things in Connemara is awesome. Aisling was so helpful and very friendly/accommodating. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a stunning view. I cant wait to go back!

My husband and I are delighted to have discovered this lovely B&B and are hoping to be able to return here on a regular basis. Our whole stay was top quality, the beds are really comfortable and the pillows, sheets and towels are all top quality...we felt like we were in a five star hotel. The shower was a little disappointing but very adequate. I prefer hand-held shower hoses for those hard to reach places! Also there was a bit of noise from creaking floor boards from the guests on the next floor, I am sure this could be easily fixed.
Breakfast was perfect, very tasty.
Owners Maurice and Aisling, and their daughter Maeve couldn't have been nicer and we look forward to our next visit.

As part of our honeymoon trip around Connemara , we were originally booked in for one night but ended up booking another night due to the wonderfully comfortable bed and the warm welcome from morris ! We had a room overlooking the harbour which was spotlessly clean and fantastically comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of chioce served with a smile and friendly conversation. We will definitely be back x

Apart from one or two minor things, you would be hard pushed to find another as welcoming, clean, comfortable, friendly and well positioned place to stay when visiting Connemara. Aisling and Maurice can't do enough for their guests and they have certainly impressed my four visiting Italian family. I can without hesitation reccomend Island View and will return there myself in the near future. Antonio Masiero

Spent three days here last June. Couldn't ask for anything better. We had the top floor room which meant we woke up each morning to a magnificent view of the Atlantic. Room had everything we needed Iincluding an extemely comfortable bed. Will definitely stay here again.
