Nice place, conveniently located on the road into Bantry. About a 10 minute walk into town. Comfortable and friendly, although room was quite small. Nice lemon drizzle cake with cup of tea on arrival! As seems to be usual in this part of the world, cash only, so don't tell the taxman

We stayed here for 2 nights. Therese and Sean are lovely hosts and Sean has lots of local knowledge. Therese had a smile no matter what the time was. The food was very good and very tasty. There was always a cuppa ready for us. The only downside was the en suite was quite small and not much room to... More

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 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
