We caught a little luck and were able to book a room in November as there was a special event happening on site. The visit was lovely and comfortable and Sophie, Sam and their mother were warmly engaging to connect with. We felt welcomed and well cared for - and the location itself is beyond compare.

We checked into Bantry House on a wet afternoon in late October for a very special two nights. What makes this place so special is the experience of staying in a beautiful and historical family home that has been in the same family for generations. We barely stirred except to go out for dinner in the evening (lots of good... More

We stayed here only one night and never wanted to leave. Bantry House is beautiful, inside and out. Views from everywhere are amazing. There are six rooms reserved for B&B guests and we were very pleased with our twin room. Very spacious and clean with lovely furniture. We were shown around to various areas reserved for guests which were all... More

Our stay at the Bantry House was one of the highlights of our trip. The room was comfortable, had free wifi, a great shower, and delicious breakfast. Our hosts Sofie and Sam were so pleasant to be around. They answered questions about the house and it's history. Included in the stay is a tour of the home and gardens. the... More

Spectacular home and gardens with great rooms and excellent service. I'm not sure why this is called a B&B as the rooms are large with great views. The gardens alone are worth the visit. My wife and stayed at quite a few other grand homes and castles and we didn't like any of them more than Bantry House. The house... More

There are photos of the house in most of the guide books and we booked online so I thought we were going to drive up to the front of the classic photo. There was road construction and Google maps directed us to the garden entrance. We backtracked to the gatehouse, wound up the long lane to a side entrance with... More

Dear oldsailor77 thank you for staying and reviewing. Those roadworks in Bantry are distruptive but a necessity.
