Josephine was so accommodating based on our last minute booking and our room was small but very comfortable. The deck chairs in the front were the... More

I surprised my wife and took her back to her roots in Fahane, just outside Bantry. We stayed in May 2014 at the Edencrest, which in my opinion must be one of the best B&B's in Ireland. Josephine was so welcoming and went out her way to help in anyway she could. Room excellent breakfast even better. If ever we... More

My wife and I stayed here last week. The best breakfast we had the whole trip. Josephine was a wonderful hostess and husband Barry was a great tour guide-knowledgable about the area. Spectacular view of the bay. Short drive to the restaurants and bars downtown. The house was immaculate and had all the extras you can imagine. Very quiet with... More

The house is well appointed and in a beautiful location, the beds and bathrooms are great as is the well furnished kitchen. The house... More

We for sure will be back when we are in this part of Ireland again! Bantry itself is a very nice place also, next... More

Unfortunately we had a very negative experience at the Eden Crest B & B. MInus a few small issues, the house itself was fine, we rented a three bedroom house on the property with kitchen and sitting/dining area. There were some minor issues like not having enough plates and glasses, let alone matching but the view really was terrific. Are... More

It is a shame that after a wonderful week in Bantry that your stay ended in such a way. However on the positive side of things, you are a brilliant story teller, and may like to come back to Bantry for the Literary Festival on the 7th July and explore the 'Short Story Workshop' This unique 5 day workshop will...
