Sean and Therese are absolutely wonderful hosts: very friendly, a welcoming family feel, very accommodating (assisted me with a special request, early check in, they have a fridge and freezer for some personal snacks, allow use of the kitchen for coffee, tea). Very clean bed and breakfast. Very close to town. The wifi is brilliant. The lounge area is comfortable....

This is a fabulous B&B on the Glengariff Road, within walking distance of everything in Bantry. The room was comfortable, quiet and very clean. The family were excellent hosts and made us feel at home, with some great tips on what to see and do in Bantry and the surrounding area.

We stayed one night in this B and B while touring through west cork. The hosts Therese and Sean were extremely kind and welcoming. We were even given tea, scones and cakes while we looked through our brochures in their sitting room. The bedroom itself was very clean and spacious. The breakfast menu was lovely and Therese was very helpful...

Fortunately for us we arrived early enough to find out that our reservation (through booking.com) had been lost. No one's fault, but it wouldn't have been fun to try to find something had we not arrived when we did. After 3 exhausting days in Cork City we were looking forward to sleeping in a little. No such luck. Our room,...

Only stayed for one night but was a really nice B&B with very friendly and professional owners. We had the loft room at the top which was really for a family but was lovely and cosy and I suspect was the best room in the house. It was close enough to walk into town but we took advantage of the...

Whilst the hostess was pleasant the accommodation was not up to 3 star standard. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms just a bottle of water which was not cold. No hairdryer in rooms. These are pretty basic requirements in 2016. The towels were quite old and sealant around shower cubicle was black. Our friends had to back...

Famous Gougane Barra is about a 20 minute drive from us inland through the spectacular “Pass of Keimeneigh” which literally means the “step of the deer” On arrival to our home we offer you complimentary tea/coffee with homebaking and afternoon tea in our garden or comfortable sitting room with stunning views of nearby Seskin Mountain.

My dad, Sidney, and myself benefited greatly from recommendations to see little church, and green forest, enjoy the walk, visit friday market, and other superior recommendations such as eat at Connor's Seafood-a world class experience-"ate there only twice" Thanks for everything including great hospitality, great breakfast and enjoyed meeing the family members.
