Sea View House
Sea View is a pretty house set on the hill overlooking the river, and overlooking the pretty village of Doolin, so it both looks and sounds like just the right destination for anyone travelling the Wild Atlantic Way. Sea View could get by on charm alone, but when you see their award-winning breakfast menu, you realise that Niall and Darra are working hard to provide a true, sustainable substructure for their happy enterprise. They grow their own soft fruits for breakfast, they collect their eggs from their own hens who are happily rooting around outside, and that they count the food miles on each of their breakfast main dishes – the Full Irish Breakfast here has racked up a mere 50 food miles, which shows the intent and serious sourcing of the owners. This wise environmentalism makes for a smashing place to rest your head, a house with real character and a breakfast with a real conscience. Sea View is also the perfect address to base yourself in order to get the most out of the dynamic and quixotic village of Doolin, a storybook place of endless charm.
