Summer Hill Bed & Breakfast
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The B&B is fine, but has its issues. The house is modern and built in an era of dodgy Irish building regulations, which means there is little or no sound insulation, so expect to hear everyone's TV's, light switches being thrown etc., The sheets are poly-cotton and the rooms are bare. However the place is clean, there's plenty of hot water and the heating was on. I skipped the fried breakfast, which looked good, and went for the porridge - mistake! However the home made brown bread with nuts was very good indeed.

Actually got this recommendation from a local at the pub when we were looking for a place to stay. Rooms were clean, very large and roomy and all ensuite.ideal for families. Host really nice and friendly. Made a great recommendation for dinner and also a fine cook as he made all the breakfasts as well. Gave us some good tips on places to visit on the beautiful Beara peninsula .

Room Tip: B and B has about 6 rooms in main house I think and all rooms seemed quite comfortable and warm for...

We were given a choice of rooms! We decided just the bed and bathroom would be sufficient. We were here in Castletownbere to meet up with family and were able to walk into town and enjoyed a night at the pub. Had a great nights sleep with ensuite bathroom! and beautiful breakfast. Great host, very friendly, thank you...we definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Owner will let you choose! if you arrive early enough.

We loved it here! We stopped by Castletownbere late from a long drive on our honeymoon in Ireland and he was very welcoming and kind. We had a great nights sleep and couldn't be happier with the place.
He cooked us an amazing breakfast in the morning and had great reccomendations for the town.

Thank you Sir!!!

We have stayed a few times here at Nealie's! We always have a very warm welcome and he has become a good friend! Every time we stay the rooms are immaculate!! En suite rooms with tv, tea & coffee making facilities! Very spacious rooms and very comfy beds. Only about 2 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of town and very quiet in the wee small hours! There is no swimming pool at this b&b but if you fancy a dip there is a very nice strand round the back!

Would recommend to anyone staying in the castletownbere area!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent!!!!!
