The Bantry House is one of the most unique experiences we've ever had. I truly recommend a night here to anyone touring this part of Ireland. You will feel like royalty in this massive house in the evening, when all the day visitors are gone. You can enjoy the honor bar, the massive fireplaces, and the library almost all to...

We did the public house tour which was great, entertaining and informative. Then they closed the house and shut the gates and we had the grounds to ourselves. The six B&B rooms had the run of one wing, tastefully renovated bedrooms and left alone to enjoy the majestic library and the billiards room. Then next morning a marvellous white linen...

As a traveler, people always ask you what or where you liked the best. There are many awesome places in the world. For me, I have a special place in my heart for the Bantry House. If I could, I would stay there forever. I wouldn't even call it a B&B, I think it is beyond that. It is an...

The B&B is really a part of the Manor House Museum. There are 6 rooms and the rate includes a delicious breakfast. After 5 the museum closes and the overnighters have the access to the library part of the museum. The library is a huge room with two fireplaces, a baby grand piano and comfortable furniture overlooking the garden. It's...

Our stay at Bantry House was absolutely amazing... Beautiful house, large rooms, very comfortable bed, modern bathrooms, very smiling hosts, amazing breakfast (try the pancakes!!). Would definitely recommend this B&B. Only negative point: one night was too short!

Had a wonderful weekend in Bantry House. Sophie and Josh give a great welcome and it was a special treat to enjoy the open fire in the main drawing room in the evening. Breakfast was lovely. Emily gave a super tour of the house, lots a great information topped off by a tune on the piano!

The name "House B&B" could be confusing...it's more a small castle overlooking Bantry Bay. Only 6 rooms overlooking the gardens in the back. Take the time to visit the gardens and the house (free for B&B guests), it's fantastic and full of history. The breakfast was excellent, pancakes, porridge, scrambled eggs, everything we tasted was good. 2 minor issues :...
