We stayed here for 2 nights, the setting is out of this world and extremely peaceful and tranquil. No traffic noise at all, stunning views. Large car park area. It is a purpose built B & B so all the room are of similar standard. Some with baths & showers, others showers only. The downstairs rooms all have patio doors... More

Spent our first 2 nights in Ireland at Sea Shore Farm B&B and couldn't have been more pleased with the choice. Great location for exploring the Beara Peninsula, an easy stroll into Kenmare for dining and entertainment. Owen & Patricia were tremendous hosts - friendly, engaging, knowledgeable and sincere. Delicious breakfast overlooking the fields and down to Kenmare River. First... More

We spent seven nights at Seashore Farm B and B and recommend it to the highest level. Owen and Trish are warm and caring hosts. They greet you every morning by name and enquire if you slept well. Breakfast is a wonderful selection of juices, fruit, fruit salad all freshly made, yogurt, cheeses, delicious muesli and everything you would want... More

Owen was the quintessential host. This was my 3rd time to Ireland. I've stayed at dozens of bed & breakfasts, and this is number one, unquestionably. The views are amazing. 10 minute walk to Kenmare, where we had a blast. Tons of live music & entertainment in Kenmare. Stop browsing, book this now. I mean it, put the mouse down... More

The O'Sullivans are wonderful hosts and make you feel very welcome. The French press coffee was delicious (perhaps the best during a 12 day vacation) as was the personally prepared meal. Beautiful view of the bay and enjoyable walk through the back down to the water. It was a pretty walk down a small quiet road to downtown making it... More

A friend and I met up for a few days in Cork and decided to travel around. We visited Kenmare in County Cork. It is a cute little town (but aren't they all?) I chose Sea Shore based on price and the reviews. It was squeaky clean. My friend said it was the cleanest place she had stayed while traveling... More

Delightful! The O'Sullivans were exceptional hosts. Great breakfasts, and French press coffee. View was best in the whole town overlooking the bay. Patrica grew up in this house and eventual converted to a b&b in the 80s. I'm a thrifty person, but this is well worth the price. Very clean. Great antique furniture compliments upgraded appliances and fixtures. Will come... More

We had a comfortable stay here. The hosts are very sweet. The shower is fantastic, the views from the room stunning and the room and bathroom is spacious. One thing to note is that there is carpet everywhere - so if you have allergies with carpets and the dust they tend to collect (like I did), then do keep that... More

We stayed here a couple of nights at the end of May and enjoyed it immensely. Our room was the largest of all the places we stayed at during our trip. Lovely view of the Kenmare River and surrounding fields.

We only stayed here one night around Easter, but loved pretty much everything about it - it was a wonderful room in a peaceful and beautiful location with attentive hosts. It was great to be able to walk down to the bay through the farm. Breakfast was delicious. After a very long day on the road, we felt exceedingly fortunate... More
