Noralene is a superb host. She is very genuine and caring, especially when the group got very wet one day after the walk. It is in a great location just 10 minute walk from town. It was so easy to work with her from my point of view as the guide of a large walking group.

Our hiking group of fourteen was treated to delicious breakfasts, adorned with freshly picked rosemary, served by our gracious host, who also packed our lunches and made sure we had tea or coffee, clean towels, hairdryers and adaptors. We explored the interesting town of Castletownbere, but always felt at home when we returned to the Sea Breeze.

The food was excellent!! The rooms were nice and clean, but it lacked a gathering place before breakfast. The view was lovely. It was approximately a mile to town for dinner and another mile back. My only suggestion would be to give guests two room keys.

My husband, 7 yo daughter, and I visited Castletownbere to research the Sullivan family roots. Noralene and her family & staff provided excellent accommodation and service to make our trip so memorable. Our room was good, but the sitting room made all the difference especially with a bit of rain during our stay. We lounged in the cozy sitting room... More

I cannot begin to find the words to explain how wonderful our trip to Sea Breeze was. It was the best stay at a B&B in Ireland that we've had. Noralene and her family are wonderful, they treat you like royalty and are constantly working to make your stay the best it can be. The rooms are kept up and... More

Breathtaking views, outstanding service, this is the place to stay. Enjoyed every minute of it. Can't wait to come back again and experience it in the summer when I can imagine it would be even more spectacular. Thanks to Noralene, the owner who went out of her way to make us feel welcome and that every need we had was... More

My mom and I stayed at the Sea Breeze two nights in April 2015. The room was spotless and the breakfast was fantastic, the BEST brown bread in Ireland!! Noralene was a doll and so helpful suggesting things we might do while staying in Castletownbere. The B&B also had a beautiful view, what more could you ask for?!

Rooms spacious and very bright and clean. Breakfast was gorgeous and highly recommend this B & B as a great find and somewhere I will visit again. Thank... More
