As a traveler, people always ask you what or where you liked the best. There are many awesome places in the world. For me, I have a special place in my heart for the Bantry House. If I could, I would stay there forever. I wouldn't even call it a B&B, I think it is beyond that. It is an... More

The B&B is really a part of the Manor House Museum. There are 6 rooms and the rate includes a delicious breakfast. After 5 the museum closes and the overnighters have the access to the library part of the museum. The library is a huge room with two fireplaces, a baby grand piano and comfortable furniture overlooking the garden. It's... More

Great to have access to the library during the evening and enjoy a drink (honesty bar). Free House tour with David was great, very interesting and his story telling made the ancestors and house come alive. Town an easy... More

Our stay at Bantry House was absolutely amazing... Beautiful house, large rooms, very comfortable bed, modern bathrooms, very smiling hosts, amazing breakfast (try the pancakes!!). Would definitely recommend this B&B. Only negative point: one night was too short!

Had a wonderful weekend in Bantry House. Sophie and Josh give a great welcome and it was a special treat to enjoy the open fire in the main drawing room in the evening. Breakfast was lovely. Emily gave a super tour of the house, lots a great information topped off by a tune on the piano!

The name "House B&B" could be confusing...it's more a small castle overlooking Bantry Bay. Only 6 rooms overlooking the gardens in the back. Take the time to visit the gardens and the house (free for B&B guests), it's fantastic and full of history. The breakfast was excellent, pancakes, porridge, scrambled eggs, everything we tasted was good. 2 minor issues :... More

We had a fantastic stay at Bantry House. The house was magnificent. The B&B was well appointed and very comfy. Breakfast was great. The staff were really friendly. We flew in to Bantry House by light aircraft. A wonderful experience. Gardens were beautiful.

What a lovely experience, it's hard to know where to begin. The house is amazing with a breathtaking view of the bay. Our rooms were spacious & comfortable overlooking the formal gardens in the back. The wisteria was in full bloom and couldn't have been prettier. The White family was welcoming and helpful with any questions we had. Sitting in... More

Booking early for 2 nights we got a great deal at Bantry House. When we arrived we realized it was even better than expected. Our room was large and comfortable with views over the formal garden. Sitting in the library of a grand house at night with a log fire burning it was easy to daydream that you were the... More
