After our daring drive over Priest's Leap, we were relieved to arrive at Bantry House, although well after dark. We entered the property through an arched stone entry that lead us up a wooded drive to the castle. There are only a few rooms dedicated for guests and these are located in the old bedroom quarters of the female servants.... More

One of the most beautiful and stunning vistas in the world! Family owned and welcoming. Comfortable with ambiance. We had cocktails by a fireplace in the gorgeous library area. It feels like you are visiting a castle! Affordable and yet exquisite in Bantry, County Cork Ireland.

This has easily been one of the best places i have ever stayed, the welcome was brilliant, just felt so relaxed from the word go, the bedroom was lovely, the view to the garden was second to none and breakfast was really lovely too. Will definitely be back soon.

We stayed one night in the Bantry House. The place is enormous and there are only a few rooms for the B&B. It's not exactly a B&B and it certainly is not a hotel. I am not sure why they bother with rooms at all. Sophie was very nice and welcoming. It's her family home and she cherishes it. I... More

This is beautiful old manor house but is not really a hotel. I have had better rooms at much lesser hotels. Having said that, this place is worth the stay for a night. The library access in the evening with the great fireplaces is worth the price of admission alone. The grounds too are quite stunning although it seems like... More

We stayed in beautiful Bantry House for two nights and had the most wonderful time. Sophie was so welcoming and our room was spacious and clean with a fabulous view out over the stunning gardens. Breakfast was a delight, the pancakes with fresh fruit, honey and yoghurt deserve a special mention! Felt like we were a world away from it... More

We spent the night at Bantry House and found it to be wonderful experience. Bantry House is over 250 years old and the main house is a museum. The room s were spacious and the host we very gracious and friendly. The grounds are beautiful and the small town at Bantry is a short walk away. I would highly recommend... More

This is on of the most delightful places we've ever been. The gardens are breathtaking, as is the view from our spacious charming room. The owners made us feel very welcomed. A highlight was the egg plucked from the henhouse, set aside for my son's breakfast. Talk about farm to table!

What an experience. Welcomed by the 10th generation of the owning family, and in a delightful room with a sensational garden view. I even got to play (badly) the 1890 Bluthner Grand in their remarkable library. And thrown in was a tour of the house and gardens, which really was very special. Don't miss out on this if you ,a...
