This is an amazing place to stay. We had the room with views across Bantry Bay and were so glad we had booked 2 nights here. The room was large and well appointed, the bed was comfortable and the toiletries were top notch. Sophie was very welcoming. We liked the library which was available for guests to use once the...

We absolutely loved our 3-night stay at Bantry House. Our room was so comfortable and serene, with a lovely view of the gardens out back and some great luxury touches, such as a heated bathroom floor. Sophie was a charming and warm host, and the breakfasts were wonderful--and served in a lovely space. We felt so lucky to be staying... More

Bantry House is remarkable. Sophie is warm and welcoming and the staff is delightfully helpful which lends to the feeling that you're expected friends coming to stay in a beautifully inviting estate. The gardens and grounds are lovely, the view of the bay is spectacular, the food is delicious (Oh, the scones! Don't miss the scones at breakfast!) and, if... More

I agree with all the other superlative reviews. Bantry House is simply wonderful. Be sure to walk all the way up the garden steps and through the stables.We stayed just one night but I wish it had been longer. Knowing that you're being greeted by Sophie to her family's home made it special indeed. The library is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Spend... More

If you want somewhere special to stay Bantry House is for you. It is peaceful and beautiful and Sophie was very welcoming. We had a lovely room with 4 windows so we had amazing view of Bantry Bay to the front - view also of garden at the back and two bay type windows in the middle with built in... More

Our first stay at Bantry House surpassed our expectations. Good friends with whom we were traveling had previously stayed at Bantry House and had promised us that we would not be disappointed with our visit. From our first view of this impressive house, we realized that, if anything, our friends had underplayed the charm of this estate. Our room was... More

I was very impressed with our first stay at Bantry House last Sept. On our recent trip we were accompanied by close friends and although I realize the risk in overstating a recomendation, I assured them that they would not be disappointed. Well, they have been raving about their experience since our return home. Not just the beauty and magnificence... More

Just had another stay at Bantry House. Yet again, delightful room, excellent catering, charming staff - and stunning views. It is a pleasure to see the house and gardens benefiting from all the hard work put in by staff and volunteers alike.

This is the best place to stay if you want to feel like royalty. The history of the building, and the family, is amazing. And you can feel a part of it.
