We spent two nights at Sea View House as we traveled the west coast of Ireland. It was a wonderful place to stay - warm and friendly with delicious breakfasts - and convenient to everything!! Doolin is such a quaint town - loved the Irish music!!! We would definitely recommend Sea View House and look forward to visiting again when in Doolin!!

It's located on the top of a small hill, overlooking Doolin. It's close to the bus stop. The house is clean and beautiful. Rooms are upstairs - they are very spacey, clean and comfortable. Probably the best ones I've seen during my trip. The bathroom was also really good. The host is very friendly, and the breakfast is great. There's just a bunch of rooms: you need to book in advance.

There is a lot to like about this B&B, so I will list a few of the things that really impressed me:

- Nyall (host) was a superb host...welcoming us with a cup of tea and homemade muffins. He offered great advice re afternoon activities (boat trip to cliffs) and also a recommendation re Dinner;

- proximity to village. This B&B is situated at the heart of the true Doolin village, and the pub (O'Connor's) is a classic. Only a short walk to and short stumble home from Seaview House

- excellent breakfast......and nothing was a problem

- Nyall provided excellent directions and parking advice for Galway.....I was really impressed as this made our day trip so much more efficient.

I was thoroughly impressed with my stay here, and would recommend without reservation.

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...

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. Sea View House offers a retreat from the hustle of everyday life. Open decks, pastoral and ocean views form a setting for relaxation or lively conversations. 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. Our Accommodation: We can offer you peaceful accommodation in one of our four spacious and elegant non-smoking guest rooms. Each stylish bedroom is finished to the highest standard and all rooms feature classic hand-made mahogany furniture. Complementary WiFi is available in our bedrooms and throughout our home. Our guest rooms are complemented by our guest lounge and large deck both where you can soak up the glorious views of the Atlantic ocean, Allie river and Doolin Village, take time to watch a passing ship or enjoy the evening sunset. Our Food: Sea View House has gained recognition for our use of locally sourced and home grown ingredients for our breakfasts. 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. We are also member of the Burren Ecotourism Network, a network of tourism enterprises with the objective of establishing the Burren as a premier internationally-recognised sustainable tourism region ensuring the future economic and social growth and sustainable development of its communities, environment and heritage.
