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 otters. Walking women have the luxury of some interesting walks starting right from our door!
If you are a birdwatcher you will be in paradise here!

We are an eco friendly bed and breakfast, 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.
 If you are a group of four 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.
We take bookings for two nights or more. The Beara Peninsula has so much to offer, you won't regret a longer visit.
