Bantry house description

The Western House at Boolteenagh is situated on a 25-acre waterfront property, three miles west of the vibrant town of Bantry in southwestern Ireland. The property, reached by a short private drive, faces Bantry Bay. A short path leads from the house down to two back-to-back secluded beaches.

The house, built in 1982, was constructed using local materials and was designed for harmony with traditional architecture; from the outside it appears to be three connected stone cottages. There are two large bedrooms, one at each end of the house. Each bedroom has a double bed and twin bed, plus a private bathroom.

The master bedroom has its own fireplace. The middle section of the house contains a large living/dining area with a fireplace and a door leading onto a stone patio overlooking the bay. The eat-in kitchen has all new utilities. All rooms have spectacular sea and mountain views.

The house is fully furnished and is fully equipped (see amenities). It has central heat, plus space heaters in the bathrooms for fall/winter occupants.

Magnificent Bantry Bay -- 22 miles long -- is an excellent base for touring West and South Cork and Kerry. There are many fine restaurants, two excellent golf courses, and several excellent antiques and craft stores nearby. The region is full of archaeological sites, plus a large number of signposted and mapped hikes of various duration and levels.

Bantry town is a traditional market town and has a Fair Day every Friday in summer featuring local cheeses and other foods, antiques, live music and more. There is an excellent local library and bookstore. In the town are a video rental store, a superb fish store, movie theater, and a variety of pubs for all tastes. There are festivals throughout the spring and summer, notably the May Mussel Festival and the music festivals in July and August.

Enjoy!
