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. Whether you are sitting in the library with a glass of claret or playing billiards, you will feel it all around you. And then there are the amazing... More

This is a wonderful B&B experience; a luxurious accommodation wing hiding in a crumbling relic of a glorious past The house and the gardens are a wonderful experience , an evocative reminder of life in a much different world. Not to be missed , highly recommended

We visit the "Land of Saints and Scholars" as often as we can. Ireland is a magical place. Bantry House, a venerable, stately home, overlooking beautiful Bantry Bay in southwest Ireland, is indeed a grand place to stay. The residence once housed the Earls of Bantry and is still resided in by their descendants. The East Wing has been modernized... More

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
