Summer Hill is in walking distance to town where we found pubs and restaurants. Our room was quite small as was the bath and bed, but breakfast was well done and the host was super friendly and accommodating.

This b&b was clean, comfortable and in a good location close to the town. We had a good size room and en suite with comfy beds. We were offered a good choice of breakfast with almost everything you could think of. We will definitely return.

We had a double room with ensuite bathroom. The room overlooked the town and the host went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We had a wonderful sleep and were served a delicious, and very filling, breakfast in the morning. The shower was hot, the bed was comfortable, and the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful.

Mr Neillie O'Sullivan gave us our choice of rooms. We chose the larger room with a double and twin bed. Tea, coffee, hairdryer, TV & free wifi provided. It is a short 10-15 minute walk to town with several eateries. We stayed 3 days & frequented Murphy's each night for dinner. Breakfast at Summer Hill was a delicious spread of... More

The rooms were all modern with everything you would want. The breakfasts were outstanding and large. It is just a little walk to downtown of this small Irish village. There are a number of good restaurants in downtown. This town has a real working fishing fleet as its main industry.

Stayed at Summer Hill Bed & Breakfast one night while we were touring the rugged Beara Peninsula. The B&B is located about a fifteen minute casual walk from the very center of town, but you can walk to The Olde Bakery restaurant (a good choice) in ten minutes or less. There are sidewalks for all but about 150 feet. The... More

The rooms were nice and very euro. There was a sign up sheet for breakfast sheet and choices could be made the night before. Staff were friendly and responsive. The one shortcoming I could note is that there is a large amount of discarded items, yard debris, etc that fills the courtyard between the main building, out building and garden... More

Summer Hill is a superb B&B run by Cornelius O'Sullivan. What makes Summer Hill so special is the care taken when one is a guest. The rooms that my friend and I had were spotlessly clean and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious and a great selection and nothing is too much trouble for Cornelius. I don't know of many other B&B's... More

We stayed in this adorable B&B for only one night because our VW campervan broke down on our way through Castletownbere and we needed somewhere to sleep until the repair was done. We were welcomed by Neil and his cute little dog Snuggles! The room was impeccably clean, spacious and lovingly decorated. The breakfast was great and had everything from... More
