Perfect Hosts and perfect Wedding at the Sea View House
We just spent two nights at the Sea View House but would have loved to stay there much longer. Niall and Darra were lovely hosts and we felt really welcomed and comfortable. The house is so perfect with a stunning view and the rooms are just wonderful with comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. They also served an amazing breakfast, thanks again for that :-). They not only welcomed us into their home but also planned our wedding day. The day was just perfect and better than we could have ever imagined. They took away our nervousness and helped us to make the day unforgettable and we felt like we are with friends. Thank you Niall and Darra again for that wonderful day and for helping us to get everything planned and for answering all our questions (over and over again ;-)) and for bringing us together with so many lovely people like Mike and Bridget. We defenitely gonna come again and highly recommend you to everyone. Wish you the best!Sent on 05/26/2019

Best elopement ever!
Everything about our wedding through Sea View House was perfect! We chose the three-night package, which was perfect and gave us plenty of time to explore Doolin and have time to relax after our wedding. Niall and Darra coordinated everything perfectly and made the entire experience stress-free. From the cake to the flowers to the girls to do my hair and makeup, everything was taken care of and done beautifully! We were very comfortable in our room and loved picking out a delicious homemade breakfast every morning. If you are looking for somewhere beautiful to elope, definitely choose Sea View House. They will set you up with all the local vendors and give you several ceremony site options. We are so thrilled we made the choice to elope on the Cliffs of Moher and stay at Sea View House. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to go back someday!Sent on 05/14/2019

From start to finish Niall and Darra made our destination wedding everything we could have dreamed of and more.Sent on 09/07/2019
My husband and I are from the US and when we got engaged last winter we knew we did not want to have a traditional wedding so I started searching for destination wedding options in Ireland, a place that was on both of our bucket lists. I found the Sea View House on Wedding Wire and after seeing their great reviews on here as well as on TripAdvisor we decided to book with them and have our wedding on the Cliffs of Moher. We had a group of 18 people and due to the recent addition of their 2 beautiful lodges they were able to accommodate us perfectly.
Upon arrival Darra quickly steamed my dress and got us set up in our rooms so that we could immediately start exploring the town of Doolin. The rooms and common areas were warm and welcoming and everything was perfectly clean which was very much appreciated especially after having already been traveling for a few days. Darra made quite a few recommendations for food and drink in town and happily answered any questions we had.
On the day of our wedding they could not have been more helpful. We did hair and makeup in the living room at one of the lodges which provided lots of natural lighting and had large windows looking out at the fields and their two beautiful horses. Their daughter was the makeup artist and did an amazing job on everyone. Our makeup did not budge all day even on the windy cliffs!
Every detail was taken care of including getting a bus for our party up to the cliffs. I highly recommend doing this as the road is very tight and the bus was able to drive right up to the ceremony location which otherwise would not have been fun for everyone to walk to.
Niall stayed and helped literally hold down the fort (it was sooo windy!) during the ceremony. We decided since it was so windy that we would go back to the lodges and take our family pictures in their beautiful, spacious backyard that just so happens to have a view of a castle. Dreamy.
After pictures we had dinner at OAR based on their recommendation, which was delicious, and spent the rest of the night dancing and hanging out in the kitchen at the lodges which was just perfect for us.
Every single vendor that was recommended to us by Niall and Darra was amazing. Everyone involved truly went above and beyond to make our day the best it could be. It is obvious that anyone they recommend is truly someone worthy of the recommendation which was very much appreciated especially coming from the US and not knowing anything about the area.
This is a terribly long review and I could keep going but hopefully by now if you were at all interested in booking your wedding through the Sea View House that this review will have you sold. Their home is beautiful, clean, affordable and run by 2 amazing people who truly care about their guests and their experience. (Darra buttoned up my wedding dress and Niall fixed my necklace when it broke. Seriously.) Not to mention how lovely the town of Doolin is! We will definitely be back for an anniversary trip in the future.
Thanks Niall and Darra!!
