Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gracious host. Lovely establishment, spotlessly clean and welcoming. Cornelius provided us with helpful advice for locating sites in the area we were interested in visiting. Would highly recommend Summerhill bed and breakfast to anyone.

We had a lovely stay and Nealie made us feel right at home. He was very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious. The property is central to everything we wanted to visit and is only a short walk from the town. We really enjoyed our stay and can't thank Nealie enough.

Lovely home with a bit of walk out of town. Your host is friendly and very accommodating. I had to do a bit of work and I was able to sit in the breakfast room with no problems. When I was leaving Neil, the host, spent time showing me the way I was going to walk that day.

Neil was so friendly and welcoming. The B&B was clean and cozy and the food was delicious. It was conveniently located only a few minutes walking from town and with easy access to all the local sites. Parking was also easy. IT was an all around wonderful experience! Highly recommend them for your Beara stay.

Meeting Neilus reminded me as to why its called Ireland of the Welcomes! And it was a genuine, warm, friendly reception we got. Myself and my friend stayed one night on our Hiking holiday to Dursey Island. We got 2 lovely, super clean rooms with a great shower en suite. He gave us some great local recommendations for dinner (we settled on Murphys...excellent). Next morning we could smell the delicious cooked breakfast before we got downstairs. What a great breakfast, prepared and served by himself, complete with a helping of good stories. Neilus shared some of his interesting life and he obviously loves spending time with his guests. Highly recommended. A real 'find', only 10 minutes walk from the centre of the town. We will be back, without a doubt. Thanks for a great stay!

Great host, could not of been nicer. I was let down by another BnB in the area late in the evening and summer hill took me in after an emergency and made me feel at ease. I would recommend to anyone going to castltownbere and I will definitely be staying here again when I return for work. The room was lovely and clean.

I can’t say enough great things about Summer Hill, a beautiful bed and breakfast in Castletownbere. The rooms are clean and spacious, the owner, Neilie OSullivan the consummate host. Breakfasts are amongst the best I have ever had. The town, with pubs and shopping, is just a short walk away. Plenty to do in the area. Summer Hill is really the perfect spot to explore this beautiful area! Highly recommend and will definitely return.
