Bantry Bay escape

  • 4 of 5

Three couples, all veterans of Ireland travels, shared this home in Bantry. There are 2 ensuite bedrooms and two other bedrooms that share a bathroom. The bedrooms were al;l large and comfortable. The fireplaced living room had seating for 6 adults. The very large playroom had a pool table and foosball as well. The eat-in kitchen was spacious with lots of counter space. The separate laundry room was very helpful. The house did not have wifi which was a problem for us. The owner says he is installing it this week. If so that solves a problem for travelers. The walk to town is easy but is uphill on the way back to the house. Our favorite pub in town was The Snug which served very good food. We explored the peninsulas, took a day trip to Kinsale, and played golf at the Bantry Bay Golf Club. It is a very pretty course along the bay and the fees were very reasonable. Golfers should definitely play there. We enjoyed the house and the area. The drive to Shannon Airport was about 3.5 hours. I would recommend this house for groups as large as 8 people. It was perfect for the 6 of us.

Excellent Experience - Beautiful House

This home fitted all of our needs. We stayed for three weeks and enjoyed every minute. The home had everything we could possible need, very comfortable and more than enough room for our party of four. We will most definitely be back!

Really nice property,walking distance to Bantry

  • 5 of 5

Well recommended, five minutes walk into town for pub's,restaurant's and shop's. Nice and clean house with everything you need, load's of thing's to do nearby within walking distance, or a good base for trip's out by car, without being too isolated. Owner very helpful and only a phone call away for any problem's if needed. Their were seven in our group ranging from teenager to pensioner and everyone had a great time. Would definitely go back, no hesitation's, and if you have got to the stage of reading the review's just book it and look no further.

The O'Brien family

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay there at this excaellent venue. The house was spotlessly clean and well up to the description of it. It was well maintained and the owner provided good customer service. He made sure that we settled in well. Electric light bulbs that needed replacement were dealt with promptly.

We would definitely recommend this property for its high standard and its easy reach of Bantry town.
