We stayed overnight, 2 adults + 2 children. The house has a perfect room for families, equipped with two single beds and a double bed. After dinner in town and a short walk back up to the house, Sean, Thèrése and their familiy invited us to join a most enjoyable conversation, while our children played with their fine little dogs...

It was really lovely to stay in this B&B which is very clean and comfortable in addition to being so near to town, that there’s no requirement to drive or get a taxi. (Ample parking either on the road or in front of house) For me the one thing that made the difference was the great welcome, a pot of... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Bantry and Therese and Sean made us feel so welcomed and appreciated. It's a wonderful B&B and their warmth and kindness made our first trip to Ireland even more special. Whether it was eating the delicious breakfasts, getting good driving directions, being so close to downtown Bantry, or just enjoying the light and fun... More

Our stay with Therese and her family made us feel like coming home to relatives. The kids were great, we were offered tea or,coffee on our arrival and made to,feel,right at home. A lovely long chat with Therese in the morning and a breakfast room which encouraged interaction among the guests started our day perfectly.

We stayed for three nights while in Bantry looking at wedding venues and had an absolutely lovely time. Therese and Sean are very warm hosts and made us feel relaxed and couldn't do enough for us.

Unfortunately, we only had one night at this wonderful B&B: We felt welcome from the moment we arrived being welcomed with wonderful muffins and good coffee. It was a great stay not only due to the great breakfast in the morning (the wonderful music in the background made us starting the day relaxed and calm) but also since there was... More

I have stayed at Doire Liath twice in the last two years while cycle touring in South West Ireland. Both times my friends and I have arrived soaked to the skin! Therese and Sean have always made us most welcome and have gone the “extra mile” by offering us hot drinks on arrival, washing and drying our wet cycling gear... More
