The most accommodating service we have ever experienced!

We booked into the Seafort for one night and ended up staying for three. The owners Siobhan and Sean were so helpful, accommodating and friendly. They gave us so many tips on where to go and what sights so see, they even drove us into town every night and dropped us off at the pub!

Highest recommendation!

We were warmly greeted by Sean and Siobhan, who were interested in hearing about our travels and what brought us to Bantry. They offered some suggestions for local attractions, and made dinner reservations at the Fish Kitchen — which was outstanding!

Very beautiful and comfortable retreat, with excellent breakfast!

Beautiful breakfast cooked to order and Siobhan got my favourite yogurt specially without my even asking for 2nd day. We had just chatted about it! Bed was very comfortable and the rooms are beautiful. We also got upgraded free of charge as it was my birthday!Sean gives excellent advice on local restaurants and a trip to the French restaurant Dan Phil’s nearby is an absolute must!

Complete luxury, the most beautiful place to relax and enjoy!

Take care not to miss the driveway that will lead you to Seafort as a real treat awaits. We were met by a unique contemporary home nestled into a quaint inlet which provides the most breath taking views over Bantry Bay. The house is decorated and furnished throughout with exquisite taste.


Hidden gem on the wild atlantic way

The guesthouse is a perfect hideaway with its own piece of the Atlantic. Immaculately decorated and furnished throughout, our room and en-suite were spotless and the bed very comfy. Breakfast is personally prepared by the owners every morning. Sean and Siobhan go to great lengths to look after their guests. Can’t recommend this place highly enough and would like to commend Sean and Siobhan for creating this little corner of paradise in Donmarke.

Amazing location, great food and staff

Beautiful, dramatic location, welcoming staff, fantastic food and comfortable beds.

Wish we could have stayed longer – we shall return!

Great location. Our hosts made every effort to ensure that we were well looked after, even securing a dinner reservation for us at an excellent fish restaurant.

Perfect start of our Ireland vacation

Sean & Siobhan are wonderful hosts of a very nice and relaxed place. Room, bathroom, breakfast room, breakfast itself, view, suggestions on where to go… it’s all wonderful.

The name says it all, luxurious getaway in beautiful bantry bay

Finally an establishment that lives up to its name!
Seán and Siobhán understand what a luxury b&b should be and have it down to a fine art. Breathtaking views, personalised home cooked, locally sourced breakfast…divine!
From the moment we arrived Seán and Siobhán were the perfect hosts, offering us coffee and chit chat on arrival after a long drive was just the wind down we needed. They continued to take care of our needs and those of the other guests in their home for the duration of our 2 night stay; giving us tips on places to visit and recommending places to eat. All places that they had experienced themselves.
Seafort luxury hideaway would put most five star hotels to shame.
One of the unique services they offer is kayaking on the bay. Such a relaxing way to explore the bay from a different angle. Just make sure you pick a spot on the land for your return journey; it’s very easy to get disoriented…..that’s all I will say about that
Two very happy travellers,
Greg (AKA Sinbad) and Monica.


Hospitable, Clean and Comfortable!

This experience was wonderful from the time we arrived, even before! The O’Sullivan’s went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect from arrival until check-out. They asked our preferences for Dinner the day of arrival and made the reservations for us. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and spotless! Wonderful coffee/teas were available in the rooms and a beautiful view was to be had out every window. We awoke to the water’s edge, clear view of Bantry Bay in the park-like setting with the birds chirping and singing. The cooked to order Breakfast, including Buffet offering the freshest, delicious selection of organic cheeses, breads, meats, fresh yogurt, fresh fruits and juices, was the best we had on our trip and included in the stay! The entire stay summed up, absolutely Excellent!

Love the west coast of Ireland but to find a gem like this on a drive down from Galway was a real bonus.

We had glorious weather, fantastic views across the bay especially at sunset and a fine dining recommendation from the hosts.

This is taking luxury to another level. Cannot wait to return…


Absolutely a perfect way for my husband to celebrate his birthday.

The location, the fabulous hosts, the attention to the smallest details and wow the breakfasts.
We will be back.



The Seafort was outstanding in every way. The setting right on the bay is beautiful and tranquil. The rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious with great views of the water. Sean and Siobhan not only prepared an amazing breakfast with a large variety of freshly prepared foods, they provided some great insights on things to see and do in the Bantry Area. Very kind and gracious hosts. I hope to visit them again soon!


Best lodging in Ireland!

First class experience all the way. Sean and Siobhan were warm and inviting. The rooms were appointed in the finest fashion from the modern bath facilities to the bedding and extremely comfortable beds. The view of the bay from the bedroom was amazing. Breakfast was the best we had in all of Ireland. Sean was very helpful in planning local activities. I highly recommend Luxury Seafort Hideaway and look forward to my next trip there.
