Not a lot wrong about this as an option in Bantry. Good breakfast and great welcome from family. On the downside, the bathroom is really small, and the heating was slow to come on. All in all, would stay again.

We stayed 1 night and had a nice, clean, and good sized room for three of us. We didn't get to meet Therese until the morning; and she was very cheery and welcoming. We had a lovely breakfast and Therese provided some very helpful insights about traveling around the Beara Peninsula.

My family traveled to Ireland/Bantry for Springbreak (Floridians). Flew to Cork, rented a car and a B&B to use as a "home base." Sean and Therese have established the perfect accomodations for such an endeavor. Incredible breakfast - I am not capable of capturing how great it is; super polite with 'spot on' advice; and they attract interesting folks to... More

Sean and Therese went above and beyond what we expected from our stay. Their warmth and hospitality could not be surpassed. They also had great recommendations on the area's activities. Room spotless with a short walk to town.

We stayed one night and had a really nice and clean room with a tiny bathroom that was a little cold and had a heater which helped a lot :) We were welcomed very warm and got offered tea right away. We also met the three dogs which was nice since we left our Cats at home and finally got... More

We stayed two nights in Sean and Therese's warm home. Both Sean and Therese couldn't be more welcoming and kind and what a location right on the Wild Atlantic Trail! If you would like a treat try the Irish breakfast with blood sausage and Sean's homemade bread. If that isn't your cup of tea there are several other delicious choices.... More

Theresa, Sean and their family were fantastic hosts. You could not find a better welcome. We had a family room which was room was lovely, spacious and clean. The breakfast was delicious and I would go back for more of Sean's brown bread! Theresa was very helpful when we wanted to book a restaurant and gave us great tips on... More

In June this year my wife and I went on a walking tour of the Sheep's Head Penninsular in the west of southern Ireland, starting and finishing in Bantry where on each occasion we stayed at Sean and Therese Linehan's Doire Liath bed and breakfast. They could not have been more welcoming or helpful. It was an easy 15-minute walk... More

Thank you Jerry for taking the time to write this very complimentary review. The Sheeps Head and Bantry are beautiful anytime of the year but the sunshine this summer showed the area off at its best. It was our pleasure to welcome lovely people like you both into our home and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. More

We stayed in the B&B for one night only but we came back a couple of days later to bring back some maps of the area that the owners had kindly borrowed us! The room was clean, the breakfast good and the owners really nice! Thanks!

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...
