Welcome to Bellatrix

Bellatrix bed and breakfast for women, the only B&B for women in Ireland, on The Wild Atlantic Way, Castletownbere, on the magnificent Beara Peninsula, West Cork, Ireland.

Bellatrix is a bed and breakfast for women on The Wild Atlantic Way, Beara Peninsula, close to Castletownbere, West Cork, Ireland. It’s the place where women from all over the world can meet and relax in Ireland’s stunning south west coast.

We have been providing a space for women’s holidays for ten years now. Young and old, active and retired, all women are welcome to this home from home under the stars.

Bellatrix Bedroom

The Beara Peninsula is a walkers and nature lover’s paradise and we are located close to The Beara Way, Dzogchen Beara Buddhist Centre, Castletownbere and Allihies.

We chose the name Bellatrix (female warrior) for our bed and breakfasts for women because it’s the name of the bright bluish star on the shoulder of The Orion Constellation and can be seen during the winter months over the house.
