I have stayed at Doire Liath twice in the last two years while cycle touring in South West Ireland. Both times my friends and I have arrived soaked to the skin! Therese and Sean have always made us most welcome and have gone the “extra mile” by offering us hot drinks on arrival, washing and drying our wet cycling gear and even recommending an excellent take-away. One of my friends summed up our stay...”we arrived like drowned rats, we left like Cheshire cats!” Doire Leath is a real home from home and I shall certainly be staying there again the next time I’m in Bantry.
