Lovely, relaxing, quiet place to stay.

5 of 5
Our family group of 10 adults stayed in the Bay House for 4 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The large sitting room window looking out over the water gives a lovely feel to the house, so relaxing. The house was very clean and everything was up to a very high standard. We can highly recommend the Bay House for anyone wanting a quiet place to stay, right by the water. Chris and Debbie are very friendly hosts, ready to help in any way they can. Daniel

5 of 5
This was our second visit to this property. 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
