“Best B&B we stayed at in Ireland!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Sea View House is perfectly located and extremely relaxing! Darra is so sweet and makes you feel like you are apart of the family during your stay. She recommended a great pub for dinner, and gave us perfect directions to the Cliffs and the Burren. Staying at Sea View House was one of the best things we did while in Ireland, and Doolin is the cutest town!

For anyone looking for a place to stay in Doolin, I highly recommend Sea View House. Darra, the owner, is so lovely and made us feel very warm and welcomed. Her B&B has the best location in town. Located on a small hill, it has the most beautiful views of the ocean, main street of Doolin, and the rolling countryside. Our first sight of this as we pulled into her parking lot, had us in awe. It's a sight we will never forget as it was one of the best on our trip. And yet, only a short walk down the hill and we were in the heart of all the fun pubs & shops. Darra's breakfast is awesome, room was clean & comfortable, and all for a very reasonable price. Our many thanks to Darra for all her kind attention....we definitely want to come back.

My mom and I were a bit nervous because Darra and Niall were very adament about being on time. However when I phoned and told her we had some car trouble and were going to be late she said no problem and just asked that we call if we were going to be any later. When we arrived we were thanked for calling to let them know we were going to be late. Niall showed us to our room and explained breakfast. He also helped us with our bags to the room. He gave us some ideas on places to have dinner in town.

There dog lucy is so cute and lovely! At breakfast we met Darra and she was so lovely. She makes everything on her own! She even makes yogurt. The food was so good. They have chickens and ducks and use their eggs to make breakfasts. Darra asked us what we were doing and gave us tips. She told us how to get the cheapest deal on the ferry and suggested the combo tour to the aran islands and the boat tour to the cliffs of moher.

Darra was really nice and showed my mom what kind of wheat is used in wheaten bread and told her that all her recipes are online. She also explained to me what a poly tunnel was and offered to get someone to go and show me hers.

If I even go back to Ireland I will definately stay there.

Darra (and her quieter partner Niall) provided such a wonderful B&B experience. The place itself is so wonderful - they will even sell you chilled wine so you can sit by the fire in the sitting room and plan your next day. Darra is like your mother - in the nicest possible way. She wants to know what your activities will be for the day so she can help you out with setting priorities and how to get there, what to see, etc. She has lovely children (also quiet, but they help out), and a lovely dog named Lucy - or was that the horse across the road? The breakfasts are the best and delightfully presented - the usual B&B buffet but with homemade yoghurt. The porridge was my favourite thing on the menu - served with a shot of Bailey's on the side to pour over top. I will be making this at home!!!

Room Tip: The room(s) overlooking the sea are more expensive - but our room at the back was lovely and the sea...

We loved our stay in Doolin! It ended up being our favorite location. The room was very clean, and it was the best stocked room we stayed in on our trip. They had a TV and DVD player in the room, tons of Channels to pick from, and they even had DVD's you could barrow from the living room. The hosts were very nice, and helpful. The common sitting room, and entry were beautiful. They had a fire in the evening which was a nice touch on the cold, and windy night. The location was perfect, just up the hill from pubs, and shops.

Amazing location for exploring and beautiful views and gracious hospitality! We enjoyed the delicious meals and wonderful local knowledge and the owners have us excellent advice and tips! Even traveling back to Dublin from Doolin, we took the owners advice for our final day itinerary (visit Doolin Cave, Ailish Cave, and have a late lunch in Galway to be back in time for dinner in Dublin while missing all the traffic) and they were right and their advice made our last day just as memorable as the first! We will be back!

This was our favorite B&B and our favorite town (Doolin) during our 3 week stay in Ireland. Darra made the whole experience so nice. Her warm personality and her expert advice for our traveling The Burren and the Connemara made all the difference (loved the Perfumery!). She made me a duck egg for breakfast! The view of Doolin from Sea View House is amazing. Her recommendation to walk out on the pier was so worth it. Loved her cozy comforter on the bed, and the nice warm fire in the fireplace. Beautiful home. Excellent hostess and family. Our room had an excellent view of DT Doolin, and Doolin is adorable. Stay there!

Sea View House in Doolin is unique bed and breakfast on the Wild Atlantic Way where you can enjoy luxurious accommodation and surroundings, superb food along with natural and warm hospitality.

Our Location: Our home is perched on the side of a hill in Doolin village over looking the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands. Located on the Burren Way and over looking the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands, we are right in the middle of Doolin village allowing you to stroll across the bridge to Gus O'Connor's pub where you can enjoy wonderful traditional live Irish music and great food. The spectacular coastal walking trail linking the village of Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher and on to Hags Head starts right outside Sea View House.

You can choose from our sumptuous breakfast buffet of home poached fruits, artisan cheese, home made yoghurt and much more before being served a low food mile dish prepared to order from our kitchen. We source as much locally as we can. Our cheese comes from the Cliffs of Moher and Buren Geopark. Our bacon comes from Galway. We grow our own tomatoes, bake all our breads, and all our eggs come from our flock of chickens. By sourcing as much of our food as possible from local producers and our gardens, we reduce the food miles (the distance that food must travel to get from farm to fork) of the food we serve. Our menu indicates the food miles of every dish we serve. Sea View House and the Enviroment: Sea View House is an Official Tourism Partner of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark.
