About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 full baths en suite (Sleeps 6)
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.

Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: We are research scientists living in Manhattan. My family built the house in 1980, and we have spent our vacations with our son in the Western House for the past 25 years. It is the perfect counterbalance to hectic urban life.
Why the Owner Chose Town Lots, Co. Cork, Ireland:
The Western House feels like home the minute you walk in, and it's all about the bay. All three major spaces in the house have large picture windows overlooking the water and the mountains lining the other side of Bantry Bay. The location combines privacy and absolute peace with endless options for hiking, cycling, and day drives, while 3 miles away lively Bantry town offers pub crawling, dining, music festivals, and outdoor fairs. Or you might just want to cook a meal using fresh local ingredients while watching the constantly changing skyscape.
