I stayed at Summer Hill B&B for 3 days during my first visit to Ireland. Summer Hill is a beautiful purpose built B&B with lots of natural timer inside the house which feels pleasant and cosy. The host Cornelius O'Sullivan was very friendly and helpful and gave me warm welcome. I felt that he loves his work of showing hospitality... More

Unfortunately I think we caught the owner on a bad day. We arrived in the pouring rain and when the door was eventually pried open we were shown to our room with hardly a word uttered. I honestly felt like a naughty child being sent to my room! This said the room was well appointed and comfortable with plenty of... More

We stayed here in August whilst on a cycling holiday in Cork and Kerry. We found it more or less by accident and it was the nicest B&B we stayed in on our two week trip, in fact we liked it and Castletownbere so much we stayed an extra night! The place is a purpose built B&B so it does... More

My partner liked this place; I was less impressed and didn't sleep well, but couldn't fault the hard work that the hosts invested in making the guests comfortable and we were grateful to get a B&B during a festival period - breakfast was good. For those who don't know, Castletownbere is not a tourist town; it's a fishing port -... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We stayed here from June 20 to 23. On arrival we were welcomed with tea. We could choose our room and decided for a triple on the first floor (nr. 6). The heat of the day –we were in the middle of a genuine Irish heat wave!- had much less effect on the room temperature than we feared, although the... More

We found this b&b purely by luck but we were so glad we did. The rooms were clean and the owners were so friendly and helpful, they definitely went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again

I stayed at the Summer Hill B&B in Casteltownbere with a friend on a short break to explore the tip of the Beara peninsula. Cornelius, the B&B's owner was a warm and friendly host. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and he advised us on places to eat, drink and see. He also knows the local history, and if you... More

We were visitors from Somerset. Our stay at this bed and breakfast was excellent. The breakfast was lovely, the beds were really comfortable, the room very clean and the shower was powerful with nice hot water. Cornelius was very welcoming and helpful. We hope to go back one day, when we visit Castletownbere again.
