This beautiful quiet place is a world away from the rat race, allowing you to relax and unwind and is an ideal base for a walking, cycling or driving holiday. We offer secure off street private parking for guests and you can also choose to walk along the foreshore of Bantry bay with its breathtaking views of the Caha mountain range, this walkway is accessed directly behind our home and is about a 20 minute easy stroll to the town centre.
We are ideally situated for exploring the nearby Mizen, Beara and Sheep’s Head peninsulas and can offer you packed lunches if you decide to spend the day walking or driving through the most spectacular scenery you will find anywhere in Ireland. 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”
We are less then a mile from the Bantry Bay 18 hole golf club and the area also offers a variety of watersports, fishing, horse riding and sea angling.
We are less than a 15 minute walk to Bantry House, which is not only one of the finest historic houses in Ireland, but it also commands one of the best views overlooking Bantry Bay in West Cork. It has been open to the public since 1946, the first to do so in the country and possibly also in the British Isles. The house is still owned and lived in by The Shelswell-White family, who are direct descendants of Richard White (1st, Earl of Bantry).
