Bantry House and gardens are superbly situated having fine views of the Bay, and being easily found as adjacent to the N71, and a great opportunity to stay in a stately home, but early booking is advisable (I booked last December, but only one night was available). My Wife and I enjoyed our stay in the spacious, well furnished and...

Comfortable B&B. Outdated rooms and bathrooms. The venue was lovely, but the house and grounds have fallen to disrepair. That being said, the stay was comfortable and the breakfasts fantastic. Do take the tour of the hone and walk up the '100 stairs' if the garden for a stunning view. It is not really 100 stairs. We wish the White...

Entering through the carved stone arch of Bantry house one is transported back in time to a more gracious world. Emerging from the tree lined drive one is struck by the stately magnificent of the mansion and the elegance of the manicured gardens. It is fascinating to tour with the owner, Bridget as she explains the history of the manor...

If I could go back in time and stay longer at Bantry House I would. We only stayed one night but all of the hours spent there were precious and to be remembered. It's really one of the big highlights of Ireland for us. First of all the house is magnificent and historic full of paintings and antiques. We took...

As you drive back through a narrow road with vegetation on both sides, the road opens up around a bend and you see this place in the distance. First impressions were that is was very cool...and a little creepy. As you enter the building, both continued to be true. We definitely enjoyed our stay. Room and bed was comfortable. Breakfast...

We stayed two nights in this wonderful stately home, welcomed by the charming owner Sophie. The bedroom was delightfully furnished with top quality beds, linen and furnishings. Faultless! The breakfast was generous and freshly cooked to order. Having the use of the Library in the evenings with it's grand piano (my husband is a pianist!) and log fires was a...

We visited the house and gardens last summer and noticed that you can stay here too. So, last October, I booked us a room for the May bank holiday weekend. Wish I had booked two nights. Lived up to all expectations. We were blessed with beautiful weather on the Saturday and spent hours wandering around soaking up the views and...

Returning to Bantry after 18 years, Bantry House is still the most wonderful place to stay. Sophie and Sam were very welcoming. The family loved it, it was their first time. Being able to visit the house and all its treasures when it is closed to the public was charming. The fire roaring in the living room fireplace made it...

I purposely planned our Ireland trip so that we'd spend a night at Bantry House, and I'm so glad I did! Myself, my husband, mom and aunt were all delightfully surprised and impressed with this old manor house and gardens. The drive down from Killarney was a bit harrowing at times, but well worth it! The view from Bantry House...
