As 2 couples traveling for first time to Bantry, this was a perfect stay. Searching our ancestors, owner Dampna was most knowledgeable about the area and very helpful with recommendations. Her husband is a charming host with a wonderful gift of gab (not blarney). Hiking down to the sea, we were even accompanied by their dog Biscuit. Afternoon tea was... More

This B&B is set in a very pretty spot and has a beautiful view of the bay. There is a trail leading down go the water which we enjoyed. It wasn't an easy stroll so if you attempt it be sure you are wearing proper shoes. The hosts are lovely people and like the other reviews indicate are charming hosts.... More

I visited Dromcloc three years ago and had a great experience here then. This time I visited with my husband and we both had a fabulous time with Johnny and Dympna. We stayed in Siberia room, a lovely room with an amazing view of Whiddy Island and the Bay. Very comfortable indeed with a good bathroom and everything spotlessly clean.... More

Recently, we visited West Cork and stayed at Dromcloc House on the advice of friends. It was great advice. This is a lovely, large B & B just outside of Bantry, West Cork, Ireland. It is well sign posted off the N71, a little east of Bantry. Dympna and John Crowley offer the warmest welcome one could ever receive. There... More

I knew when I chose this place to stay for a weekend in Bantry that it would not be a mistake. Dympna and Johnny are perfect hosts in a perfect farmhouse in a perfect setting in a perfect part of the world, I just wish my stay was longer than it was. My room was lovely, just right for me,... More

My brother, sister and I arrived to a happy Irish greeting and tea. The room was big and comfortable with all the amenities we required when we made the booking. Breakfast was delicious. You certainly couldn't ask for better hospitality from our hosts.

If you are looking for granite floors and crystal chandeliers this is not the place - it is a farmhouse. (ie: if you get to the milking barn you missed the house). If you are looking for good food, friendly people, beautiful views, convenient location and comfortable sleeping it is perfect. Dympna and Johnny were helpful hosts, and the other... More

The brown bread is delicious also. Short drive to town, lovely view of bantry bay from our bedroom window. Great base for traveling to the Beara peninsula... More

This was the first B&B we stayed at in Ireland and the location was so beautiful! Dympna and Johnny were extremely helpful, warm and welcoming. A hot water bottle warmed our beds when we retired for the evening. I would love to visit again!

Good situated in Bantry. The rooms are very clean and you can look on a lake. The hosts, Dympna and John, are really lovely, kind and helpful. Also, the breakfast is really good. You have a large choice. If you want to do the Sheep's Head Way, it is the best B&B you can stay in!
