After using the Rick Steves's book to create my vacation itinerary, I realized that something was missing--Bantry and this wonderful B & B. Thank goodness, my friend Sharon had been here last year and strongly recommended it, because it is amazing--definitely the highlight of our vacation. This Bantry B & B is simply a magical place to stay. The house! The gardens! The history! Staying here is a destination in itself. In addition to the accommodations being top notch, the staff was awesome as well. From helpful day planning, to the wonderful house tour, to the delicious breakfast, they are extremely helpful and welcoming. The evening we arrived, Sophie, the amazing host, was going to recommend places to eat to us. After driving most of the day in the rain, the two of us were too tired to leave, so she created a fantastic feast of cheese, bread, sausages, and vegetables--going above and beyond. Honestly, this review can't convey how wonderful this place is. I'm just not that good with words. Staying here is truly like living in a fairy tale. I highly recommend this wonderful house!
