HEAVEN IN IRELAND

  • 5 out of 5
Such a wonderful holiday. The setting was out of this world and the house was superb for the three generations and the family members who came and went as the week went on.. We simply could not have asked for anything more. Debbie had thought of our every need and even provided a playmate for Charlotte!! We enjoyed your company Faith.The kitchen was well equipped, the beds so comfortable , and the outdoor area was idyllic with the BBQ, eating area and,comfortable loungers. The three under fives loved the garden and wooded area .We all enjoyed the sand and sea in late afternoons at Ballyrisole as the weather was too hot to go earlier but the adults were able to canoe and paddle board from the end of the garden. The village was lovely to walk to for a coffee or an Irish Breakfast which some of us enjoyed more than once We were pleasently surprised by the stock carried by supermarket and had a wonderful BBQ with Twomey's burgers and Clonakiltey sausages from there. Bantry was so close and has a great fish shop and butchers. Eating out was superb and we loved the variety of fish available. .We all had a wonderful time and came home refreshed and relaxed. Thank you for everything and we hope to return.

WOW! A DREAM HOME FROM HOME IN A STUNNING SETTING!

  • 5 out of 5
Where do I start?! This place has everything you could wish for ... and then more!!
We had a family gathering from Dublin, UK & Oz with a mix of adults, infants and a baby - everybody was catered for. From five perfectly-sized bedrooms, to a large kitchen-dining-living area with large f/freezer, flat screen tv & home cinema system, culminating in a wonderfully large setting which is on a rockpool beachfront, large gardens with swing & slide and amenities like bbq, loungers and outdoor dining table.

Durrus is a typical quaint Irish country village with a local grocers, café & pubs. Bantry town with a Friday market is only 6km (10mins drive) away with shops, butchers, restaurants, etc. There are some great sites to view locally - one is: Sheep's Head, with a great walking route and if you are an active walker there is plenty to do from here. The Ring of Kerry is accessible via a car as it the rest of the South West coastline.

Finally, I will finish on the topic of the owners: Debbie & Chris and their friendly wee daughter Faith & dog Molly. They are absolutely wonderful - attentive in every way and always there to help. There is nothing more they could have done to make our stay as good as it was and next time we stay at Bay House we look forward to cracking open a bottle of wine to share with them.

This home is a 'must' for anyone looking to visit this gorgeous area of Ireland and I highly recommend it to anyone. Looking forward to a future visit; Aaron, Lisa & baby Ciara. xxx

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! This house was perfect for our combined family. We traveled from Tennessee and Florida where we found plenty of room and a very spacious kitchen stocked with EVERYTHING needed. The beds are VERY comfortable! Our landlords were SO friendly! I loved the tables outside and the huge table inside. The book provided (with phone numbers, recommendations, doctors, etc.) was very helpful and covered everything. I have nothing negative to say about our stay. Our Ireland vacation was the BEST! Big thanks to Chris and his beautiful family (Molly too) for being so kind to us. I would highly recommend staying here and hope we can come back one day.

COMFORT AND GLORIOUS LANDSCAPE

  • 5 out of 5
This is a house in a spectacular setting with all the space, comfort and convenience one could want, plus very friendly owners. It is ideal for families, as it gives directly on to a beach and has a huge lawn for games, but the three sea view bedrooms with king-sized beds are pretty nice for the adults too.

WE'LL BE BACK!

We'll be back!
  • 5 out of 5
Es war zwar das erste, aber mit Sicherheit nicht das letzte Mal, dass wir dort waren. Das Haus ist wunderschön, direkt am Meer gelegen und bietet alles, was das Herz begehrt: genügend Schlafräume und Bäder, einen offenen Kamin, Freizeitmöglichkeiten wie Kajak, Angeln, etc. und eine Aussicht, die einem jeden Tag aufs neue den Atem raubt. Wir kommen gerne wieder und bedanken uns auf diesem Weg noch einmal bei Chris und Debby, die grandiose Gastgeber sind und uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite gestanden haben. Greetings from cologne. Maren & Marlo

SHORT BREAK AT BAY HOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a short few days at this beautiful house last month.It was a family reunion from Texas Cincinatti, Cork and Dublin. What a wonderful house.We were met by Debbie the owner who made sure we had a very generous basket of provisions to get us started also logs for the stove. This house was all and more than we expected.It is five star for sure from the very comfortable beds to the fully equipped kitchen.The views from the house are amazing. Even when the weather wasn't so good it was lovely to sit and look out at the sea and rugged countryside.We enjoyed seeing all the local tourist spots like the sheepshead peninsula and the great views also the lovely town of Bantry. It is a very convenient location I would be very happy to recommend this property .Debbie and Chris were very welcoming .We would love to return to this beautiful holiday home.

Bay House is a superb waterfront property, in a truly spectacular and private setting. We consider our location and stunning views to be some of the finest in West Cork. Set in 1.7 Acres and approached by a half-mile quiet country lane, Bay House and gardens overlook Dunmanus Bay. The views reach for over twenty miles, out into the Atlantic, over the Sheeps Head and Mizen peninsula and with a backdrop of the Beara peninsula. Stone steps from the garden sea wall lead straight onto a slate/shingle beach. Many claim to be waterfront but we really are the real deal!

The Mizen peninsula's sandy beaches, including Barley Cove’s beautiful Blue Flag beach, are just a short drive away and the Sheep's Head peninsula with the Goats Path is famous for having many miles of scenic and rugged walks.

The friendly and lively village of Durrus is only 1.5 km away (within walking distance), where there is a grocery shop, pubs, lovely restaurants and a Café. There is also a post office and a general hardware store that also sells fishing equipment. The historic waterside and market town of Bantry is approximately 8 kilometres away. Here you will find many more bars, restaurants and a larger supermarket, also offers online delivery (supervalu.ie).

The Mizen peninsula's sandy beaches, including Barley Cove’s beautiful Blue Flag beach, are just a short drive away and the Sheep's Head peninsula with the Goats Path is famous for having many miles of scenic and rugged walks.

Within easy reach are: Bantry House, Mizen Head Lighthouse, Glengariff Bamboo Park, Schull Planetarium, Ewe Sculpture Garden, Waterfall Alpaca Farm in Drimoleague, Cape Clear Island, Fastnet Rock & Garnish Island.

Other activities in the area include: fishing, boat trips, kayaking, horse riding, scuba diving, cinema, whale watching, swimming & Spa, walking/hill walking, beaches, golf, Bantry Bay Golf Course is an 18-hole championship course with some stunning scenery overlooking Bantry Bay. The local golf professional, Steve Cameron, has provided discounted rates on tuition, either at Bantry Bay Golf Course or Glengariff Golf Course, when staying at Bay House!
