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

Dear Lyell D Lovely to read you enjoyed your stay. The fire is burning brightly every evening at the moment as I think we have finally hit winter (or rather winter has hit us!). Best wishes, and hope you return Sophie Shelswell-White 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. Sorry you found it a bit confusing to find us however glad you enjoyed the way we do things here. We certainly are quite unique with our location and history.

We only stayed there one night, so we may be slightly unusual as guests. This is a beautiful old house with a lovely garden and a great view over the bay. If the day is clear (as it was for us) make sure to catch the sunset. The house is just out of city center and the walk to the... More

My wife and I just returned from 4 nights at this magnificent property. The cordial welcome by Sophie and the friendly attention of her staff made us feel at home. Our room overlooking Bantry Bay was elegant and the bathroom was spotless. Awesome breakfast, well equipped honor bar, and incredible grounds and gardens to stroll, can't ask for more. Short... More

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.
