The house is well equipped with everything you could want. Certainly home from home. The key holder contacted us before we travelled to confirm where everything was and to pre-warn us about roadworks that were taking place in the area so that we could take an alternative route. The house meant that everyone could wander into town when they wanted. The house is within walking distance of Bantry town. The games room is well equip and kept the teenagers, and adults in our group entertained! Well appointed and spacious. Big thanks to Richard, Pat and Mary! We are sure to be back again and would certainly recommend this property as an ideal family base for visiting Bantry and the surrounding areas. Helen, Seb, Chris, TIm & family

Every space in the house works and it instills peace and relaxation. the drive to schull is short and pleasant. The house is extremely well equipped, the owner is very responsive and the beds are very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and would 100% recommend it.
