Reviewed May 3, 2010

We stayed at this Bed and Breakfast on our recent trip to Ireland. The owners are very nice...we felt like we were at our favorite Aunt and Uncle's house and not a B and B. Very tastefully decorated with artwork by one of the owners. The room was just right and the breakfast superb. We even got travel tips during our stay. We would go back in a heartbeat!

For us, travelling from B&B to B&B, The Mill had it all, including a nice sun lounge to read and relax. We had a good room, the breakfast was comprehensive, and an extra compliment for the super-friendliness of the hosts.

We stayed one night in what we can only assume was once the garage - the room was seperate to the house which was great in terms of privacy but the decor and furnishing was a little tired to say the least! This was also the first B&B where we needed to use the heaters both morning and night. Location is ok, but not central - it is a definite drive into town, not a walk - especially problematic as the parking in Bantry is far from great. Host was very helpful however and gave a range of options when asked about places to eat dinner. Breakfast was of a good standard and is perhaps the saving grace of this B&B - indeed it is this which is mentioned in the guide book! Ok for a short stay, but don't expect it to be of same standard as other B&Bs in Ireland.

In july we stayed at The Mill. Despite the rainy wheater we had a good time there. Tosca and her husband Kees are very helpfull and friendly people.
It's a realy good b&b on walking distance of the citycenter. Nice rooms, a lovely garden and plenty of parking space.
A really excellent breakfast, the best we had in Ireland, a lot of choice.
Highly recommended.

We stayed one night in the Mill. There is parking in front of this beautifully landscaped home. You enter into the sun room, decorated with wicker furniture, a variety of plants and an eclectic mix of art. The rest of the home is decorated with numerous paintings and pieces of art giving it a charming appeal. The inn is a little bit out of the main town but in a quiet area. I had a wonderful nights sleep. Our room was a little cramped, there were two twin beds pushed together and one double bed for the three of us. We could have used more room for our luggage but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small but about usual for what we have seen in Ireland. The breakfast was wonderful and the owners very friendly. We would have loved to stay longer but we were traveling on to other parts of Ireland. I would love to stay here again.

The Mill was a disappointment due to cramped sleeping quarters and a generally tired, cluttered presentation. The hosts were friendly and cheerful and served delicious breakfast with a wide selection. We decided to stay only one night instead of two and due to poor weather on both arrival and departure we didn't see much of Bantry itself. We headed for the Beara Peninsula and Killarney instead- a very good decision.
