This hotel is truly one of a kind. We stayed here for two nights as part of our whirlwind trip across Ireland, and it was so majestic. The grounds, gardens and home are so incredibly lovely. The management extremely kind and helped make our stay so warm and cozy. The fireplace late night with cocktails was a definite highlight, as... More

We stayed here for a night recently and were absolutely blown away by the scale of the grandeur of this place. We hadn't appreciated the history and were thrilled to feel like, for a very short time, we were a part of it. The room was spotless, there was loads of hot water and nice smellies and the breakfast was... More

This was my third visit to Bantry House. Sophie, Sam and their mother do a great job keeping this beautiful and historic house open and accessible to the public. The house is a precious element of Ireland's cultural heritage, a place of national importance, and it is a credit to the family that they have managed to integrate guest accommodation... More

Bantry house is a very special place. The owners are the heirs to the estate, the same family has been there for centuries and are happy to answer questions about the history, which is plentiful. Gorgeous and private, definite pride. The grounds are spectacular. The host is lovely, friendly and professional. The breakfast was great. The rooms were fabulous, spacious... More

Comfortable B&B in a spectacular manor estate and gardens overlooking the sea. Managed by descendants of the family from the 1700s who couldn't be more gracious and welcoming. The rooms and baths were sumptuous and very comfortable, the grounds were unbelievable, and the museum part of the house astounding. Guests get to experience a very grand library sitting room as...

Once we found the reception (tucked away in a corner with no obvious signage) we had pretty much walked around the entire main building. Clearly there is a need for some TLC on the exterior, but we understand that this is very expensive and difficult for the young family currently running it. The interior, however, is extremely well done -... More

This is one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed. From the splendor of the room and gorgeous view over the harbor to the personal touch placed on everything by Sophie Marie White and her family. David, who checked us in, was welcoming and gave us a grand tour including access to the library, game room, and various other... More

I had the joy of staying at Bantry House in the middle of September. It's in a beautiful location, with amazing views over the harbour and the gardens. Sophie was a wonderful host to me, showing me to my room and explaining everything about the B&B - the lounge, library, gardens, even suggesting some nice places to eat in the... More

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.
