Ard na Gaoithe - Bed & Breakfast, Cape Clear Island
A warm welcome awaits you in our island home.
Ard na Gaoithe is a family run Fáilte Ireland approved Island Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
We are situated on the beautiful island of Cape Clear The Jewel of Carbery’s hundred isles.
Cape Clear Island/ Oileán Chléire is a oasis of calm and tranquility only 45 minutes from either Baltimore or Schull. Cape Clear is beautiful, unspoilt and life is punctuated by the sounds of the Atlantic waves and birdsong rather than traffic and alarms. The roads are narrow and wind their way all over the island, hidden paths take you over the majestic cliff tops and through secret bogs and glens. It is a paradise for walkers. The scenery is second to none and the abundance of wild flora and the possibility of spotting rare birds and whales and dolphins add to the experience. Walking here is pure pleasure and it is suitable for most people. In 2010 the first looped walk was opened and is proving a great success with our guests. And of course the island is one of the best locations in Ireland for bird watching. We are happy to do very early breakfast for our guests. We speak Gaelic and English. There is always a special welcome for Gaelic speakers, beatha teanga í a labhairt!
