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

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.

We had a super holiday in Bay House in July. Wonderful house; clean comfortable and very spacious. The views are stunning in all weathers, the best that we have ever had in a holiday property. The bedrooms are all spacious and very comfortable as is the living room.
Extremely friendly, helpful owners who did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely be back !

We have had a wonderful week's stay in Bay House, Dunmanus Bay, Co Cork this summer. It is a beautiful holiday home and was enjoyed by all our family very much. Debbie, Chris and thier charming little girl, Faith, made us feel very welcome. Bay House is set in a picturesque area of county Cork and is within easy driving reach of all the local beauty spots as well as some very pretty beaches. The house caters for a large family with no difficulty and is very suitable for younger children especially, with a well stocked play area/conservatory and pretty lawned.garden overlooking a shingled beach and Dunmamus Bay. We enjoyed visiting the local towns and eating al fresco in great restaurants for most of our holiday. Enjoy your stay at Bay House and visiting a beautiful area of county Cork.... The Fogarty's, Surrey, UK.

Beautiful views from a fabulous holiday home

Bay House is in a beautiful setting on the water's edge. We stayed for a week, 2 adults and 2 young children. We received a wonderful welcome from the owners, Chris and Debbie, who were so accommodating throughout the week. The garden and surrounding grounds are beautifully maintained and really spacious for children to play. The house is equipped to a high standard with luxurious beds, linens and towels and plenty of toys and games for all age groups. This area of Cork is beautiful and there are many places to visit, with really good cafes and restaurants. It is paradise for food lovers with excellent locally produced food available. Bay House is a wonderful place to stay, it is even better than the photographs on the website. We would definitely recommend it! Thanks to Chris and Debbie for a wonderful stay!

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!
