Peace and tranquility abound here. Nestled amongst an old famine workhouse and centuries old mills this area is rich in folklore and history. A great location to explore West Cork & the Beara peninsula from and only a 5 minute drive into Bantry town. We've a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove & library to unwind in after a long day's hiking or if you really want to pamper yourself treat yourself to a full body massage. We pride ourselves on our hearty breakfast, you won't be disappointed!

Donemark Falls is a comfortable spot to spend a few days, the surroundings are magical and there are plenty of tales to be told about its past. Eli makes a great breakfast, and has a rather impressive baritone singing voice too!!!

Had an absolutey fab stay at Claire & Eli's. They were so easy going, welcoming and friendly. I felt like I was staying at my friends house. The house is only a few km to Bantry which you could walk to as there is a path on the main road. Might need a torch at night for walking d…
