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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
