We loved this particular B and B! The same family owns and has lived in this gorgeous manor for several hundred years, so they know the history of the house and the area. It is a B and B, but not at all your average B and B. It is a huge private manor that has one small wing open...

Lovely, clean bedrooms; delicious, fancy full breakfast; guest access to "honesty bar" with liquor and tea, etc.; and huge library complete with two fireplaces. Great restaurant recommendations from host.

Just spent Easter weekend here having stayed for one night in Easter 2016. When we left last year we were wishing we had another night - so we stayed a second night this year - and left this morning wishing we had a 3rd night! Every detail is thought of here. The rooms, bathroom, toiletries, bedding, towels and breakfast are...

We really enjoyed staying Bantry House. We always feel very welcome and its a fabulously unique experience. Breakfast is delicious and generous. The bedrooms have wonderful views over the garden and the bay! They are nicely furnished and the bathrooms are warm and modern.

Our attention to Bantry House was caught by a programme on German TV 3 years ago. We both spontaneously said we must go there during our trip to Ireland. We eventually arrived at the reception by retracing our path after, on leaving Bantry Square,having originally gone straight past the arched stone Gatehouse which is just after the row of shops...

Staying here is really a unique experience. You get to explore the gardens and house after everyone else (day visitors) has gone for the day. The view of the bay is absolutely exquisite. I recommend walking all the way up the stone steps at the back of the property and taking in the view. The gardens themselves are otherworldly. What...

We stayed at the Bantry hotel during our tour of Ireland in 2016. The gardens and grounds are absolutely breathtaking. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is absolutely delicious. The charm, hospitality, scenery and ambiance is perfection. The Bantry house was my favorite place we stayed in all of Ireland. Didn't want to leave!

A beautiful place near the center of Bantry. Rooms are fantastic, and so the gardens, the living room and all the rest. Me and my wife spent an hour in front of the fireplace before going to bedroom. Wonderful service and wonderful family. Sure it is expensive but worth every cent.

I can add very little to what others have already written here about Bantry House, other than to say that it's all true. My husband and I stayed for three nights at the end of October and enjoyed it immensely. The house itself is very handsome and atmospheric. It is located in a wonderful setting overlooking Bantry Bay, with a...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Bantry House in Bantry, Ireland, and had a great experience. Sophie greeted us and settled us into our large, beautiful room right away. Super comfortable bed, new bath with heated tile floor and heated towel rack plus a view of Bantry Bay Made this room exceptional. There is a small Honor...
