Sophie and her staff were on top of everything. The service and rooms were first class. Nothing was overlooked and anything you needed they could find. They booked us a driver to take us around the area and we had a delightful day. A beautiful garden and setting.

We booked here as a birthday treat and wasn't disappointed, some real luxury, bedroom was large and comfy and looked out over the gardens. We looked around the house on arrival which was part of the cost of your stay. The gardens were accessible after close which was very nice. The bathroom was warm with underfloor heating. Wifi was picked... More

One of the best places I have ever stayed with beautiful views and great service. You can go into the library and read at night! They also served breakfast on the family china. I would not stay anywhere else. We were here Sunday and Monday which was great! The house and gardens are closed Monday, so we got the entire... More

This is a great place to stay, preferably for more than one night. The approach is over a long drive which opens to a wide sweep with the brick house and a fine view towards the estuary with its boats and gentle hills beyond. We were greeted by the charming and helpful Sophie White, a family member who is now... More

My husband and I decided to splurge for one night of our UK/Ireland trip and we couldn't have been happier with the Bantry House. Staying at the Bantry House was like experiencing part of history. Our room was quite large and faced the front of the house and Bantry Bay. The room was elegantly decorated, the bed was incredibly comfortable... More

Thank you for your great review it's always good to read we are doing a good job here! I'm sorry you felt cold in the Library even with the fire, I would have been happy to offer you blankets and will consider having some readily available for guests in the future. Best wishes, Sophie Shelswell-White More

We really enjoyed our stay at this magical and special place. The house, the gardens and the surroundings were simply magnificent. We liked being able to stroll around the house and sit in the library or use the billiard room. We felt really special. Breakfast was heavenly as far as quality, quantity and choice was concerned. I've never had a... More

Thank you for staying with us and your very positive review. I will take your idea on board and look into the carpet when we do our maintenance review later this year. Our carpet is cleaned to a very high standard and does provide warmth underfoot and less noise from other rooms. I am so glad you enjoyed the breakfast... More

My wife, two young adult girls and I had the pleasure of staying at Bantry House B&B. One of the best nights in our entire Ireland tour. The welcome was great. We had afternoon tea in the Library where the food was delicious and large enough to be dinner for the girls and my wife. At the close of the... More

We booked early enough that we got what is apparently the best guest room - room 25. It was a lovely large room with many windows looking out over the bay, and two comfortable large armchairs to sit in and watch the world go by. My husband thought the bed was a little firm (he often thinks that!), but I... More

It isn't often you actually get to stay in one of the grand mansions that people pay just to visit. This one is as grand as any, and is still owned and managed by the family that were here in the eighteenth century. The 6 guest rooms have been very well prepared for guests, with thoroughly modern facilities. It is... More

Had a really great time at Bantry House. Proffesional and efficient service. Very clean air. Food fresh and well-cooked. Very quiet room with a great view. Staff very helpful. Took a long meandering walk early morning and felt I had the entire estate to myself. A slight touch of mist on the air only added to the magic.
