The Bantry Bay Hotel is a pure joy to stay in. The location is heavenly - scenic but central. Everything you need is literally on your doorstep. They have lovely food and it's available all day. The service is incredibly friendly. Other restaurants abound in the area but the hotel restaurant excels in quality. The food is simple, wholesome and well-presented.
There are occasional music sessions in the bar with a wide variety of very talented singers and guitarists and some good accordion players. It finished up by 11.30pm and was great fun. Just down the street from the hotel you can take boat trips to Whiddy Island at the pier,
and there are lots of different sea-side walks all within walking distance of this hotel. The sunsets were just beautiful.
To summarise - I can't wait to go back. The staff were very kind and obliging and made me feel very welcome at all times.
