About this listing

We offer a discount for stays of three nights or more - just message us for details!

We're offering a bright and spacious double bedroom in our house on the outskirts of Bantry, West Cork. My husband and I live in the house full-time with two dogs and two cats, but love to welcome guests! You'll find our house cosy and comfortable.


Extra people: No Charge


The space

We have a very cosy, comfortable bedroom with a king-size bed, complete with an electric blanket for chilly nights! Our house is very spacious, and there is a television room that you are welcome to use. You will also have use of a small toilet downstairs, and a full bathroom with shower and bath upstairs whenever you need it.

Guest access

You'll be able to use your bedroom, the downstairs toilet exclusively and there's also a shower and bath available upstairs for your use. You're free to use the kitchen, sitting room and lounge, along with enjoying our beautiful landscaped grounds and river on the property.

Interaction with guests

As my husband and I live in the house full-time, we'll be available most of the time to help as best we can. We'll be there to welcome you and give you a key, and can be on hand to offer recommendations for local activities and sights to see.

The neighbourhood

We're located in the townland of Gurteen. It is very quiet, with only a few neighbours. You will often meet walkers along the quiet roads taking in the country air. Though we are not directly on the water, you can see the sea from our front door, and we are a short bike ride away from a quiet and tranquil beach.

Getting around

There is a regular bus service (236) that runs between Cork City and Bantry, via Cork Airport. The journey takes approximately two hours. Unfortunately there is no public transport running directly to our house, but we are a very short drive from the town, and there are many local taxi services. It is also a very pleasant 40 minute walk along the coastline to the town centre, if you are so inclined!

Other things to note

We do have one lovely friendly dog and two tame housecats, so if you're not a fan of animals this might not be the right house for you! We're also located about 5 minutes drive from Bantry, or about a 40 minute walk. Because of this, a car would be useful but local taxis are available and we drive into town regularly so would be happy to give you a lift if it suits.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)

If you have a house-trained and well-behaved pet, they're more than welcome to come along too and meet our gang! Animal lovers are particularly welcome! We expect our guests to be respectful of our home, especially as we are still living there full-time. We do not allow smoking in the house, but there is plenty of outdoor space if you'd like to go for a stroll and a smoke.

Maureen and her husband were very warm and welcoming. We immediately felt at home at their place. Everything was really well prepared and breakfast in the morning was absolutely lovely. We really enjoyed staying at their place and would surely recommend staying there!

We had a lovely stay for our last night in Ireland! We didn't have the chance to meet Maureen but Peter, her husband, took a very good care of us. The house, bedroom and host were very cosy ^^ We'll be glad to meet Maureen next time we visit Ireland ! Your place will stay in our hearts

It has been very very well. Maureen was very helpful, as we asked her to find her house. All was like described. We stayed in the kitchen a long time in their kitchen and could laughing about a lot. Maureen and her husband were great. They gave us good advices as well for our trip. We slept very well and at the next morning we got a good breakfast. We are sure that we want visit them again, if we came back to Ireland a second time. At the next morning we got a perfect car service (he cleaned our windows perfectly :-) - Thank you very much. We wish both a good time and wish them the best.

I had such a lovely stay at Maureen's, I felt so welcome and relaxed. The house is just outside of Bantry but Maureen and her husband dropped me off in the town centre and picked me up no bother. It was lovely chatting with them in the evening, and they gave me a delicious breakfast and packed lunch to take with me. I'd definitely recommend staying here!

Our experience at Maureen's place was absolutely great! Maureen is a lovely woman and she tried to help us with everything in the moment we entered her home. She offered us some tea and we were chatting very pleasently until dinner time. The room was spacious and the bed was a treasure as it was unbelievably confy! Breakfast next morning was delicious in company of her cute pets. We will be back for sure. ¡Nuestra experiencia en casa de Maureen fue absolutamente genial! Maureen es una mujer encantadora y trató de ayudarnos con todo desde el momento en que entramos en su hogar. Nos ofreció té y estuvimos charlando muy agradablemente hasta la hora de la cena. La habitación era muy espaciosa y la cama era un tesoro de lo increiblemente cómoda que era. El desayuno de la mañana siguiente fue delicioso en compañia de sus adorables mascotas. Seguro que volveremos.
