Only stayed in the Sea View one night, lovely welcome and a great elevated position, handy for the cliffs (go after 6.30pm to get better light for photos and and avoid the €6pp car park fee). Breakfast was home baked and imaginative, eggs as fresh as a daisy, large pot of tea (communal table). Job done. Pillows a bit hard...

We have stayed with owners Darra and Niall on a couple of occasions and have totally enjoyed ourselves in all respects. We have travelled to Ireland approximately 25-times, therefore have stayed in hundreds of B&Bs over the years. Considering our experiences from a macro perspective I would rank Sea View House as one of the very best. Sea View house...

Cant really fault the Sea View House. Rooms were lovely. Very comfortable bed. Darra and Niall were extremely hospitable and provided lots of help with the local area.

During our 11-day trip to Ireland Doolin was one of our favorite areas. We stayed at four B&B’s during our visit and without question Sea View House was at the top of the list.

We LOVED Doolin and the Sea View House!! The owners were fantastic and welcoming and they suggested things for us to do and see when we got there. If you like hiking, they suggested and set up the cliff hike for us which was amazing. Beds were so comfortable and breakfast was fab!

Sea View House was the perfect respite on our busy travel journey around Ireland. When we arrived after a long drive and then hiking the Cliffs of Moher all afternoon, Darra's warm welcome and offer of tea by the fire in the sitting room was a godsend. My daughter needed to see a doctor that evening and Darra moved mountains...

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. We are a certified member of the 'Green Hospitality Programme' and Tripadvisor Gold Greenleaders. ... more   less
