This was our second stay at Maple House. Our previous visit was so good, we looked forward to a second experience. Esther, the caretaker, was wonderfully attentive and friendly. We were able to relax each evening and take our time in the morning-totally relaxing and stress free!

Very comfortable and warm

4 of 5
The accommodation is great value for money. With 4 large bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms it met our needs very well. This is a traditional Irish home and reminded me very much of my childhood holidays to Ireland. The views are stunningly breath-taking, the lounge and two of the bedrooms look out over Bantry Bay and Widdy Island. It's a short drive to Glengraffi, which has a few shops, pubs and some excellent restaurants. Prefect retreat, very peaceful. Great walking and site seeing, friendly neighbours if you get to see them. The owners are really lovely and helpful. We will definitely return.
