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

A wonderful and quiet property on Kenmare bay just a few kms away from the centre. What a beautiful experience to wake up in our spacious bedroom and see from our bed little rabbits running around in the front yard and the water in the back. Mary Patricia and Owen were wonderful hosts! They prepared a very good breakfast each... More

Stayed one night at the Sea Shore Farm in May. The guesthouse is located up a narrow road which is only a short walk or drive to town. Beautiful view from the room of the river and farmland. The room was huge! Comfortable bed, very clean and even a bathtub in the ensuite! Greeted by Owen and Patricia's daughter Moira.... More

We spent 12 days in Ireland in Bed and Breakfast establishments across the Emerald Isle. Our experience at Sea Shore was at the top of the list. A true "Irish experience" with top notch hospitality. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, with great views and spotless. You could eat off the floor. Nice touches everywhere. This B and B is... More

The Sea Shore farm is located in a beautiful, peaceful location and is run by two lovely hosts. They provided us with great suggestions for meals and sights, along with excellent directions. This B and B is a true gem, you won't be disappointed!
