Great location, gourmet breakfast, lovely rooms and owners Darra Hughes and her husband who point out unique ways to tour the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands, and where to hear the best Irish music.

This is a long over due review. We stay at the Sea View House in Oct 2014 for 3 nights and I often wish I could be there again. Darra and Niall were great host, they made us feel welcome and were always ready with a helpful tip. The room was small but comfortable the beds are on the hard... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. In fact, in our two weeks travelling around Ireland this was our favourite accommodation. The guest house sits high on a hill and looks over the pretty main-street of the town as well as the fields and the sea beyond. But best of all is the amazing host, Darra, who made us feels... More

We rented all 4 rooms of the house in late June. The location was perfect. Beautiful view from the house as it sits up on a hill. From the house you can walk to Aran Islands Ferry and also the walking trail of the Cliffs of Moher (both are highly recommended). Doolin is a great town to visit and Darra... More

Darra and Niall were both welcoming and friendly. Darra gave us excellent directions to local attractions, food, and live music. Breakfasts were superb. I especially enjoyed chatting with the owners about the world travels that both of our families have done. In the midst of running their business, they both took the time to treat us like fellow travelers and... More

The positive reviews of the Sea View House are spot-on. We stayed 3 nights in early June and were very impressed. It's true that it is a bit more pricey than other B and B's in Ireland, but the service, quality, and warmth of the hosts make it worth it. Comparative lodging in the US would be far more expensive.... More

We were a family of 8 (4 adult couples) visiting Ireland for the first time late June into the first week of July, 2015. We stayed two nights in Doolin at the Seaview House and had a wonderful time due to the hospitality of Niall and Darra Hughes - the home is lovely, immaculate and the host and hostess were... More

We were in for a wonderful experience when we arrived at Sea View House. Darra greeted us and immediately began helping us with suggestions of where to go and what to see. She even helped us arrange a guided tour of the Cliffs of Moher. It was so great the way she enjoyed our enthusiasm and seemed so happy for... More

Dara and Niall run a wonderful b & b in Doolin, right on the west coast by the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. The rooms are beautifully appointed and have wonderful views of the area. Everything served at breakfast is made by them or purchased locally and is delicious! Be sure to ask for their suggestions to local sites.... More

I have travelled all over Ireland and always come back to Doolin - spent my 25th birthday here and just recently spent my 50th at The Sea View House there! I cannot say enough about Darra and Niall and the house! True Irish hospitality! Perfect location to so many of the amazing outdoor sights - so much history! The house... More
