My husband and I recently spent three days in Doolin. We loved staying at Seaview. Darra was the most helpful, welcoming host who gave us the best places to go with easy directions. She also makes the best homemade yoghurt. We looked forward to breakfast every morning. Cannot say enough about this place. Just loved our stay in Doolin.

I will let my wife write her own review and share her thoughts and ideas but here is mine.

What a great place to stay; rarely do you find a place to stay that offers everything. View, hospitality, great food and a comfortable bed. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Luci (the dog) and we were made to feel at home, part of the family and treated to Irish love and culture. Anything we needed was provided to include our privacy. Hard to find a place that doesn't push their agenda but we were offered a brief outline of the area and allowed to explore at will. We used many of the suggestions offered and were treated by sunny visits to the cliffs of Moher, great food at the pub and a beautiful wak on the beach. We spent two weeks in Ireland and the two night here were the frosting on the cupcake. I can't wait to return, enjoy the fantastic breakfast, sit and enjoy the views and listen to the local stories. Thank you for sharing your lives with my wife Alison and I.

Great stay in Doolin. Darra & Niall were brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome. They were more than happy to arrange taxi's for us and tell us where to eat and what to do. Couldn't recommend this place enough, will definitely be back...... and the breakfast is incredible!!

We were booked in to stay at Daly's however due to an incident outside of the control of owner Susan Daly, we found ourselves at Sea View House. We stayed three nights and found Darra and family to be extremely welcoming and accommodating.

The breakfast was incredible with all items homemade and/or locally sourced. We walked from the door of the B&B to the Cliffs of Moher and beyond as well as managing to make the 100yard trek to the pub each night!

Our stay at Sea View set us up for a wonderful few days in County Clare.

Great place, such a lovely hostess, wonderful home-made breakfast - beautifully presented, great spread, mini-fruit yoghurt and granola shot glasses, we had lovely kippers and gigantic bowl of porridge with baileys. Really comfortable and clean room. Lovely views across the town. Would definitely stay there again. Simples!

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights here in October. What a lovely home. Darra and her family were so welcoming. The breakfast was amazing, and I felt so at home around the table with the other guests. Darra's an amazing cook. Everything fresh and home made ( even the yogurt). She gave us great tips on the local area, which probably saved us some time and made our stay just that much better. Everything was perfect here from the immediate response to my email enquiry re rooms, to the warm welcome, everyone's favourite dog Lucy, to the quick way our room was made up for us while we enjoyed breakfast. I would definately stay there again, in fact we almost didn't want to leave!

Room Tip: book ahead by email, althoiugh I am sure all the rooms are great here

The Sea View House accommodations and the hosting by Darra Hughes & family are as enchanting as Doolin itself (and Doolin is extraordinarily enchanting). There are so many aspects to the Sea View experience that make it a unique, home-like experience: chickens pecking in the yard, the pony Peggy grazing in front of the house, Darra's warm, charismatic personality tending to your every need... And then there's the beach at the foot of the Cliffs of Moher on view from every window and just steps from the house. We wanted to pinch ourselves.

We only stayed at Sea View House one night, but wished we had planned differently. We could've stayed in Darra's house forever!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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.
