Niall and Darra were so warm and welcoming. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home! They ensured that everything was perfect for our wedding ceremony and took special care of us on our day. On days that we had nothing planned, they directed us into the most incredible adventures. We couldn’t say enough about how incredible this couple and the Sea View House truly is!

Thank you Niall and Dara for a home away from home at the Sea View House. My husband and I had a stellar stay and wedding ceremony. Niall and Dara took care of every little detail so we could focus on enjoying the day. They also provided us with helpful suggestions for places to eat and visit and they even helped us book a hotel for one of the days on our stay that we had not yet managed to book. Finally, the accommodations at the Sea View House are top notch. The bedrooms are comfortable and I already miss the wonderful breakfast dishes! Our trip was greatly enhanced by staying at the Sea View House. Thank you Niall and Dara and we hope we see you again!

I highly recommend the Seaview House! Niall and Darra were so kind and helpful throughout the planning process and recommended extremely professional vendors. Niall’s was so responsive in emails and always got back to me fast, which was so important for me since I was planning a wedding in a different country. For anyone who is looking to elope or have a small intimate wedding with stunning views and amazing hosts/planners this is the place!

We had a wonderful experience with Darra and Niall at the Sea View House. Not only were the location, food, amenities, and service outstanding, but most importantly: the wedding was absolutely amazing! We chose with the Sea View House for our elopement plans because of the great reviews, and we were not disappointed. Both sets of parents went with us, and everything went smoothly and was completely enjoyable. Everything was taken care of, from delicious homemade breakfasts to a weather backup at an amazing location. Anyone looking for a dream location in Ireland with wonderful hosts should look no further. We can't wait to go back for an anniversary!

My husband and I absolutely fell in love with the Sea View house and Darra and Niall too. Walking distance to quant pubs, the ocean, and close to the Cliffs. Such a sweet and charming B & B with amazing people. Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect and we have them to thank for that. Our experience was perfect in every way. If you come to Doolin, this is by far your best option! We want to go back already! Thanks again for everything.

My husband Rob and I are anything but traditional so of course we decided to elope. Over many painstaking debates we decided upon Ireland, since it is a life goal for both of us and we could not think of a more beautiful Scenic land to tie the knot in! After many nights searching Google we stumbled across the Sea View House in Doolin. As soon as my husband started exchanging emails with Niall and Darra we knew we had found the one! Absolutely everything was perfect, from the extremely comfortable beds and cute rooms to the amazing breakfast that is prepared fresh and served each morning. We could not have asked for a better experience and we were touched by the hospitality we received. The weather is obviously unstable and when the location needed to be changed due to this fact, Niall drove us to several other areas to let us pick and everything he showed us was absolutely lovely. They even accompanied us to our ceremony and decided to bring their pup Lucy. As we left I realized that it would be impossible for me to stay for a week because I would feel like I was leaving old friends. This was the perfect vacation and we have been touched in a way that we will never forget. Thank you so much Niall and Darra, you were absolutely lovely and words cannot describe how wonderful you made our wedding day and our stay in Ireland! We cannot wait to return to your beautiful home one day!Sent on 05/04/2018
Love Rob and Ali!

The Perfect Place to Begin a Marriage
When my husband and I decided to elope, Ireland was first on our list. Because of the Sea view's high reviews and elopement packages, I contacted them. Immediately, Niall and Darra were incredible to work with. Planning an elopement in another country is not easy, but with Niall and Darra, it was straightforward and a delight. This included: helping us find someone to preform the service, providing a list of vendors (photographers and videographers) they had worked with before, a florist, a wonderful mother daughter team to help with wedding day hair and make up, helped get both of us ready, ironing and general laundry services for a suit and a wedding dress that had flown the Atlantic, champagne, chocolates, dinner reservations, and the most wonderful wedding cake - hand made by Dara!
We ended up deciding on getting married at the Hag's Head on the Cliffs of Moher, per Niall's recommendation - what an incredible place!
Upon arriving at the Sea View, we were greeted by what felt like family with their warm hospitality and incredible home. The Inn is settled into a beautiful part of a perfect little town, with wonderful local pubs and coffee shops just a short walk away and with plenty of access to the Cliffs, the harbor, the Aran Islands, and a plethora of other attractions.
Niall's cooking was AMAZING and breakfast was always a favorite part of our day. Darra was amazing with her suggestions of what to do and when to do it. On our wedding day, it felt like we had two wedding planners helping us with timing, dress/suit pressings, getting all dressed up, dinner reservations, flowers, and witnesses. Not to mention the pure hospitality offered up heartily. Sharing coffee and cake that Darra had made after the ceremony was one of the most special moments. They made for an incredible beginning to a marriage!
We stayed at the Sea View for a total of four days and if we could have, we would have stayed forever. The perfect place, the perfect town, all with the most amazing people. We are so thankful for Niall and Darra, and we can't wait to return!

We had an amazing experience from start to end. Every thing imaginable was organised for us before we got there. I felt like I didn't have to lift a finger. The flowers champagne handmade chocolates and cake was organised and included in the price. They also contacted a few humanists to conduct our legal ceremony. Also it was organised upon my request to have a hairdresser to come to the venue on the morning so it was pure relaxation. This cost extra but was totally worth it for the piece of mind and convenience. The owners Niall and Darra were so attentive,you could tell they enjoy the wedding as much as we did. They were also very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and coastal drives.
Sea view house is a beautiful location within the heart of the village and ocean views that would take your breath away at the start of the cliffs of moher. After photos we took a short walk to get tattoos from Gerry at west coast ink who is an amazing artist and a lovely guy.
All the food was amazing all fresh and local, you could see the hens that lay the eggs across the road. The rooms were spotless and the bed was so comfortable. It was pure luxury accommodation. Our only regret about the whole thing was that we didn't stay longer, if we were able we would have stayed four days. We will be back again

The best elopement experience we could've imagined. All our our expectations and envisions we're met and surpassed....everything was so stress free and intimate. Loved loved loved!

If you are looking for the quintessential small wedding/elopement venue in Ireland, you have found it!! Seaview House is located in charming Doolin, just up the hill from the center of town. The rooms are stunning and Niall and Darra leave no detail behind. They are well-connected within the region and are able to put you in touch with the best of the best: flowers, cake, champagne, photographer, celebrant....you name it. Every part of our stay (and wedding) far exceeded our expectations!! Get ready to fill your heart...and stomach!
Meagan · Married on 07/19/2017
Niall and Darra were lovely! We were married on a rainy day but they still made it the best day ever for us. The food was amazing as well! Can't wait to go back again!
Paul · Married on 07/14/2017
Firstly our overall experience was fantastic. Doolin and surrounds are beautiful and the people warm and welcoming. My partner and I wed in July 2017. We live in Canada and choose to be married in Ireland a we met there travelling 8 years prior. Knowing that the irish culture is grand and the scenery stunning we decided that this would be the place to do it. We booked everything online and communicated with Niall and Darra via email so we had no idea what to expect. Thanks to the help and professionalism from Niall we were able to organise the whole thing from abroad and were not disappointed with the end result. We were provided with many options that the Sea View House can offer from flowers, cake, bouquet, photographer, hair, makeup and solemniser (wedding celebrant). Also we were provided with information regarding the legal side of things.
Once we arrived they made us feel welcome and their relaxed nature help ease our nervousness. The accommodation is excellent and from the deck and from two of the rooms you have views of the quaint little town and ocean. We stayed an extra night to fully soak in the experience and enjoyed every minute, the only bad experience was having to say goodbye. Breakfast every morning is locally sourced and delicious. Our hosts were full of local knowledge and are happy to share it with you. Our stay here was great, relaxed and comfortable. If we were ever to return to Ireland we would defiantly return to Doolin and visit the Sea View House.

The Sea View House was absolutely amazing! The food, service, accommodations, and wedding coordination were beyond what we could have imagined! We can't wait to come back! Darra and Niall are spectacular hosts and made sure our wedding day was perfect. We wanted an all-inclusive, small wedding, and we got it at Sea View House. Their dog, Lucy, was an excellent host and watchdog as well!Sent on 06/26/2017

Fairytale, that's the best way to describe it. I still can't believe I was in a puffy white gown, made up like a princess, getting married by a castles with the ocean crashing against the shore behind me and a harp playing in the background. Then I went traipsing all around the Cliffs of Moher having my picture taken in the most beautiful place on earth carrying a bouquet of daisies and babies breath . I had cake, sipped tea in the parlor and returned to my room to find chocolates and champagne. What more could a girl ask for on her wedding day? All of this was a result of the care and attention given to every detail by Darra and Niall and I will be forever grateful. Thanks is not enough and I can't wait for my anniversary trip(s).

Stop looking and just book Sea View House! Niall and Darra were amazing to work with from the moment we reached out and contacted them! They helped us to handle every detail, provided referrals to top-notch vendors, and made sure the day of that everything went perfectly. On top of their professionalism and organization, they are extremely genuine people. You feel at ease from the moment you walk in the door, and you know they have everything handled. It doesn't feel like you are working with a "vendor", it feels like you are working with old friends. I can't recommend them enough!
Brittney · Married on 10/27/2016
If you're looking for a beautiful location to spend your wedding, you found the right place in Doolin. Sea View House does more than that though, Niall and Darra made us feel right at home. They provided amazing service, breakfast, local advice, and really go above and beyond. Our wedding was perfect even with the wild Atlantic weather. In the few days I was there, I felt like I had a new home away from home. I can't wait to go back and visit. I'd highly recommend using them for a wedding. They are easy to work with and knew plenty of beautiful spots to have the ceremony. Darra made a beautiful bouquet and the wedding cake may have been the best cake I've ever had.

Our time at Sea View house was beyond amazing! We stayed October 7-9 and had our wedding day on the 8th. Both Niall and Dara were helpful, insightful, and very accommodating to our questions, and requests. Each morning we got a home made full Irish breakfast that was well beyond our expectation. We plan on going back again, and reccomend for anyone to have their special day here. Lucy the family dog was cute cuddly and friendly. Great time no complaints at all. Will & Kellie

The Sea View House was the absolute best part of our trip. Niall and Darra were completely wonderful and were extremely helpful with getting everything situated for our wedding ceremony! The Sea View House was extremely clean and we felt extremely comfortable there! Conveniently located with the best views in town, I would highly recommend this place to anyone! We definitely plan on coming back to stay here again in the future! We could not have asked for a better place to stay, and could not have asked for better people to help us out and get everything situated! Thank you Niall and Darra, we hope to see you guys again one day!

We couldn't be more happy with the wedding day. Niall and Darra were incredible and made the day beautiful and easy. Gorgeous location, helpful, friendly, accommodating...I could go on and on. Highly recommend.
Vanessa · Married on 07/19/2016
Niall and Darra welcomed us upon arrival and made us feel confident that everything would be taken care of for the wedding. Excellent correspondence with a list of recommendations for priests, photographers, hair/makeup service. Breakfasts were amazing with homecooked meals in the morning and recommendations on how to spend the rest of the day. Thank you so much for all of your help on our special day. Can't wait to stay with you again!

Niall and Darra are the absolute best at their craft. Planning an international wedding can be tough and confusing. These bed and breakfast owners are nothing but phenomenal at assisting in your planning and also accommodating on your special day. Doolin is the most beautiful place for a wedding and the Seaview House is the perfect place to stay and celebrate with your family.
Stephen · Married on 07/06/2016

The accommodations, the food, the wedding were perfect . They assisted me in every step and the wedding was flawless.

My husband and I planned a small family elopement at the Sea View House, which is where we also stayed for our ceremony. We loved the bed and breakfast. The facilities were so beautiful. The hosts were flexible and easy to work with during our entire wedding. They arranged for a cake, flowers, and made our dinner reservations. They also had great recommendations for local vendors. Even better, when the rain kept us from holding our ceremony outside, the graciously made space for us in the sitting room.
Cherry · Married on 07/04/2016
Darra and Niall are true professionals. It is very seldom that you meet professionals of their caliber. We were welcomed into the bed and breakfast as family not guests. Every aspect of the wedding was arranged by Darra and Niall prior to our arrival, this included the cake, flowers, dinner, makeup, photography, music and transportation. The ceremony was set on the cliffs but unfortunately the weather didn't coorporate. Darra and Niall quickly rearranged the B&B to accommodate the group indoors. From the restaurants to the hiking everywhere they sent us we were greeted with love and care.
We have made a lasting connection with Darra and Niall and can not wait to return.
