"Ideal family lodgings right in the area we wanted to be in"
This property was just gorgeous! It was so comfortable, relaxing and beautiful, we really hated to leave! Every need was anticipated and there were so many lovely extras that we weren't even expecting. Our family group of 14, ranging in ages from 16-64, all loved the large dining room/living room open space for gathering. The modern kitchen was perfect for our big dinner prep. Having the bedrooms & baths on various levels was very convenient and allowed for some privacy. The town of Bantry is charming, and everything we needed was right there--groceries, pubs, restaurants, parking, pharmacy, etc. We only had to walk a block to the bay. While staying here, we drove one day to the Ring of Kerry & Killarney, another day to Blarney Castle & Kinsale, and one day to Cork. It's close to the big tourist attractions, but far enough away to still be a small, quaint & quiet town to retreat to at the end of a long day. Our teens loved that they could watch Netflix, the adults loved the fresh scones & apple pie Deirdre left for us, and we were all grateful that there was a dedicated laundry room with a washer AND a dryer! Very rare in Europe! Everything was exceptionally clean and stylish. The beds were super-comfy with beautiful linens. Don't miss this experience!!
