“A wonderful, wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

Sea Breeze is the most wonderful place to stay on the whole Beara Peninsula! Noralene and her darling family were charming, our bedrooms were lovely with everything we needed, breakfast was deliciious. The setting in Castletownbere is like a movie set (and has been several times)--simply beautiful. We loved every single minute of our stay there and cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

A booking confirmed by the B&B through their website, via email and by phone. Finally, arriving no room available, without any apologies, and abolutely no help to find another room, a evidence of a lack of hospitality and know how.
Their neighbour helped us in 3 mn to find annoter accommodation with a tremendous seaview with people really friendly

We stayed there for two nights. The rooms were large and well equipped. In each room you have a TV and a bathroom with a really hot shower (nice after a day of walking in the rain). They have a wide range of different breakfasts (Irish or continental). The first day we arrived we were wet to the bones and it was really great that the host offered us to dry our clothes overnight. That was really helpful as we had to continue walking the next day. The B&B is not in the center of the town but the host offer to drive you to Castletownbere (it is 10 min walk from town). We can really recommend it!

My wife, sister, and I have been staying at Sea Breeze each year for many a year. We are from New Hampshire, USA, and what started as your typical search for a place to stay and hope for the best, turned out to be just that-the Best! The home is beautiful with large rooms that are spotlessly clean. One can easily walk to the town center in a few minutes. As it is located on Bantry Bay the views are great. Breakfast. Oh, yeah, there are no better ones to be had in Ireland. Excellent coffee, and a fry that will get you through to your evening meal. Everything I have told you is reason enough to stay at Sea Breeze an initial time. However, the reason we go back is the McGurns. These are warm, friendly, welcoming people. You don't just get checked in and checked out. You are treated like old friends from the start. We are now old friends. We shall continue to stay at Sea Breeze for as long as we are able to return to Ireland. Should you decide to give it a try please say "Hello!" to Noralene, Aiden, Cristin, and Amy.
