You'll Never Stay at a Better Home!
If you've ever stayed at an absolutely amazing place you'll understand why I'm ambivalent about writing this review. I worry that one of you will book it for the dates we want next year--but it wouldn't be right not to give this home an exceptional review, so here goes: My husband and I are retired and very particular about where we stay, since we always stay a month or more. We stayed here from early June thru Mid-July. We've had the luxury of renting some truly wonderful homes thru VRBO. This one is the BEST by far--it's immaculate (thank you Mary!!), spacious and perfect for families. Richard, the owner, and Pat (the property manager), were more helpful than we had any right to expect. Although we didn't have any concerns at all, they checked on us frequently to make sure all of our needs were met. The location was the best--as other guests have said it's an EASY walk into beautiful Bantry, which we believe is the most incredible town in Ireland. We've visited Ireland many times, but Bantry is the best place from which to do day trips to all of the sights of Ireland. It's on Bantry Bay and the shops are quaint and lovely. The townspeople were unfailingly lovely, offering stories of local lore and suggestions for unique places to visit. We fell in love with the whole town. We especially enjoyed the EWE Experience in Glengariff and the many castles and museums scattered throughout the small towns. We tried a lot of the pubs in town and enjoyed them all--we particularly liked the fresh Bantry Bay mussels and any seafood dish. If you have time, take a short ferry trip to Sherkin Island, Garinish Island and Whiddy Island. If you have a few weeks, go to the Skellig Islands as well. It's a longer ferry ride, but well worth it. If you enjoy hiking, you'll be in an ideal location to trek West Cork's many hundreds of well-marked and well-maintained trails. You will never see more breathtaking vistas anywhere in the world. Renting the right home is always a bit of a risky business, but you can be assured that this home will make you happy from the moment you step inside. It's modern, comfortable and beautiful.The yard is spacious and great for outdoor games or dinner on the porch. All 3 of our grown daughters visited us with our 4 grandchildren for a week or so, and we never felt crowded. The photos in this listing don't do this home justice! If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them--the owner has my contact information. Thank you, Richard!
Thank you Eva and David for your kind review
Fantastic house and location.Highly recommend.Suitable for families with young children/just adults.
This was our second visit to this property. The house is well equipped with everything you could want. Certainly home from home. The key holder contacted us before we travelled to confirm where everything was and to pre-warn us about roadworks that were taking place in the area so that we could take an alternative route. The house meant that everyone could wander into town when they wanted. The house is within walking distance of Bantry town. The games room is well equip and kept the teenagers, and adults in our group entertained! Well appointed and spacious. Big thanks to Richard, Pat and Mary! We are sure to be back again and would certainly recommend this property as an ideal family base for visiting Bantry and the surrounding areas.
Helen, Seb, Chris, TIm & family
Thanks Helen for your very kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed staying in our house.
Perfect place to stay!
The house is beautiful and close to town. There is a lot to do in Bantry and near by. There were 7 of us in our group and we had loads of room inside and out. My family agreed that this was our favorite lodging while touring Ireland. We plan on visiting again and hope to book this house.
Thank you Margie and Brian. We look forward to seeing you again.
Bantry Bay escape
Three couples, all veterans of Ireland travels, shared this home in Bantry. There are 2 ensuite bedrooms and two other bedrooms that share a bathroom. The bedrooms were al;l large and comfortable. The fireplaced living room had seating for 6 adults. The very large playroom had a pool table and foosball as well. The eat-in kitchen was spacious with lots of counter space. The separate laundry room was very helpful. The house did not have wifi which was a problem for us. The owner says he is installing it this week. If so that solves a problem for travelers. The walk to town is easy but is uphill on the way back to the house. Our favorite pub in town was The Snug which served very good food. We explored the peninsulas, took a day trip to Kinsale, and played golf at the Bantry Bay Golf Club. It is a very pretty course along the bay and the fees were very reasonable. Golfers should definitely play there. We enjoyed the house and the area. The drive to Shannon Airport was about 3.5 hours. I would recommend this house for groups as large as 8 people. It was perfect for the 6 of us.
Really nice property,walking distance to Bantry
Well recommended, five minutes walk into town for pub's,restaurant's and shop's. Nice and clean house with everything you need, load's of thing's to do nearby within walking distance, or a good base for trip's out by car, without being too isolated. Owner very helpful and only a phone call away for any problem's if needed. Their were seven in our group ranging from teenager to pensioner and everyone had a great time. Would definitely go back, no hesitation's, and if you have got to the stage of reading the review's just book it and look no further.
This property is situated within walking distance of Bantry town, one of the most scenic parts of Ireland. Ideal base for a touring holiday. There are a range of activities in the area which include golfing, fishing , sea angling, walking tours, pony trekking, horse riding, boat excursions and a lot more. Bantry town is within easy reach of both Cork airport (1 hour) and Shannon airport (2.5 hours). A perfect holiday for both families and couples.
