Beautiful boutique hotel with excellent staff who were polite, friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. A special thank you to Ruan and David on reception. Christian (the chef) who made us delicious breakfasts that set us up for the day. The room we had was wonderful. Facing the sea. What more could we have asked for. Thank... More

This is a very discrete property with great views of the ocean. The staff are incredible, especially Adele and Ruan who will efficiently assist you with any restaurant or transfer bookings. This exclusive hotel is beautifully furnished with extremely comfortable beds and covered with good quality linen. You will need to ensure that the room selected is sea facing as... More

We had the most fantastic stay at The Clarendon Bantry Bay. The service is impeccable and made the experience a true pleasure. The daily breakfast and afternoon tea is excellently and perfectly prepared. Highly recommend this lovely place. The only suggestion I have is that the trees of the property in front be trimmed so that the downstairs suites can... More

This is a really lovely high end Guest House built into the hillside with spectacular views overlooking Bantry Bay. We had a superb suite on the top floor and the space was huge. Breakfast on the terrace is excellent and the staff are really helpful and efficient. However if you don't have your own transport then you have to take... More

Our family stayed in three rooms at this beautifully restored hotel (formerly a private home in a quiet, upscale area). EVERY detail was thoughtfully taken care of by the attentive staff. The hotel offers stunning views of the bay and delicious daily breakfasts but the best quality of this hotel was the exceptional staff. Noel at the front desk researched... More

The Clarendon is a nice luxury hotel in less windy Bantry Bay. The rooms are ample and comfortable, the staff is very friendly, well trained and motivated to go the extra mile. Especially Adele, the receptionist, was most helpful. The view from the room terrace is fantastic, with the waves breaking around the rocks on the shore. A minor point... More

If you are looking for a special experience, The Clarendon Bantry Bay is the place to go. The venue has spectacular views and the rooms are decorated luxuriously.

This is the first time Ive stayed in such a small hotel, and i must say it was delightful. The views are indeed breathtaking and the staff so welcoming and friendly. My only slight gripe would be the availability of snacks during the day and getting drinks in the evening, other similar hotels have honour bars which i would highly... More

Stayed at the Clarendon for our 10 year wedding anniversary and the welcome we received was amazing from being upgraded to a better room to the level of service the staff give. This place is amazing and I highly recommend it. We would definitely return. Thank you everyone there for making our trip so memorable, x
