We came across Bantry Bay Guesthouse on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. And what a find it turned out to be! Located in the heart of Bantry Bay,... More

The wifi worked very well, there was access to laundry (which Ed willingly did for us) and you can store food in the refrigerator as well. The surrounding... More

So, if you're driving in your trip, parking your car won't be a problem. Moreover, the accommodations are comfortable and clean and the owner is always doing his... More

I was really lucky to find availability in this guest house during New Year's, since the whole city seemed to be fully booked. I could not have found a better place to stay. I spent two nights here, in a very cosy room with my own bathroom. The location was excellent, close to the My Citi - tourist bus route.... More
