Lovely relaxing time spent at Bantry Bay House

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely relaxing time at Bay View House, with all the facilities and hopefully will visit again when time allows.

It was a home from home where everything was 'just right'. Very comfortable, very clean and warm with everything that you need to forget your worries.
Lovely views, outlook and scenery from the house along the coast.
Plenty to see and do within the area and some fabulous pubs and coffee shops to visit locally and in Bantry itself.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Lovely house - Stunning views

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second time that we have had the pleasure of staying in Bay House with our two young daughters. The house is spotlessly clean and well equipped and the views are stunning. Every room has a breathtaking view of Dunmanus Bay across a huge lawn that stretches down to a private beach - you will never tire of the view! The house and garden are completely safe for children since the house is at the end of a half mile drive from the main road.
Chris and Debbie are extremely welcoming hosts and our children have loved playing with their delightful daughter Faith. We will certainly be back again very soon.

Stunning location, lovely home, excellent hosts

  • 5 out of 5
A stone's throw from Durrus village, travel down a serene tree lined laneway, ending at a sea view that makes you completely relax before you've even got to the house. More a home really, comfortable with all furnishings & decor to a tasteful & high standard. Spotless also.
Too many thoughtful details & extras to mention! Appropriate reading material, kids toys, kitchen equipment, outside tap great after beach. Multiple outdoor seating areas.
The layout was perfect for our three generational mixed group. Babies, children, young adults, to elders, we never felt crowded. A suitable hub accessible to many West Cork attractions, but also perfectly suited to just staying put.
Five stars, plus! Great for families, or adult groups, A home from home.
Thanks so much for your hospitality. Chris & Debbie, the ceád mile fáilte was very evident here.

This is a unique setting. The house is in a very good condition and has a spectacular view and standard. Ideal play ground for kids and place to relaxe for the parents. Everything you need in walking distance. We went there as a group of nine and everybody was amazed. I will re-visit soon.

Perfect House in an idyllic location

  • 5 out of 5
This was a perfect house for our needs, grandparents, adult children and grandchildren. Separate room and bathroom at end of corridor for baby and toddler family was very welcome. As was the playroom 2 year old enticed older children to her den. Ample supply of everything, games and books a bonus, for adults and children as was the well equipped playroom. Great ease for children playing on lawn in full view of everybody. My daughter took everybody kayaking at some stage and snorkelled herself. The view, the sea and the mountains all to ourselves. The peace and tranquility of the place lingers with me. Couple of trips to Barley Cove such fun for everybody frolicking in the water, nobody wanted to leave. Visit Alpaca Farm great adventure for children. A day at Sheeps Head and meal after at Ahakista watching the boats and blessed with thunder and lightening. Huge rainbow and spectacular sky. Never seen anything like it in Dublin. Breathtaking. Dining was easy in spacious dining area and patio. The Stuffed Olive in Bantry and Supervalu had everything we needed. As did the shops in Durras, Wiseman's had everything, including New York Tribune! and I purchased striking flip flops. Durras such a pleasant place to wander. It was a special time for our family to be together not all there all the time. It worked. One daughter said very good Karma in this house, the other agreed. That sums it up. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming and their daughter Faith was a lovely addition at times to our family and fitted like a glove.

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.

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!
