Young and old, active and retired all women are welcome. This is your home from home under the stars. A perfect destination for holidays for women in Ireland. We look forward to your visit.
Bellatrix, a guest house for women, is set in mature gardens in close proximity to the fishing town of Castletownbere. We are a bed and breakfast with a difference. You can make your lunch and light evening meals in our fully fitted kitchen and dining room.
Why the name Bellatrix as a Bed and Breakfast for Women in Ireland?
On cloudless nights we enjoy watching the moon and stars. Bellatrix is a bright star in the Orion Constellation, and, as we don't suffer from light pollution here, the experience of these clear nights is always unforgettable.
Enjoy an evening in our garden sauna and cool down under the stars!
A short walk from Bellatrix through a forest will take you to a wonderful little cove called Traneen. There are often seals in the cove and if you are lucky you might even spot the resident Otter. Walking women have the luxury of some interesting walks starting right from our door step!
We are an eco friendly bed and breakfast where your shower is powered by the sun. If the sun isn't shining, don't worry, we have a back up hot water system. The peninsula is magnificent: two days won't be enough - stay for a week and you won't want to leave.
We regularly update our programme so keep in touch to see what is on offer. If you are a group of five or more, give us a call and we will quote you a great rate.
Bellatrix is a great holiday destination for couples, singles and seniors.
