This is a very old private cottage with great charecter, a warm modern interior situated right in the centre of Bantry town. It has a paved garden setting it back from the entrance.
Many years ago when Ma used to live here it was a great house for visiting, card playing,tea drinking and topical discussions(gossip), everyone was welcome. It is very central just off the main plaza. The entire building is yours and would be most suitable for small families or four friends sharing.

The space

There is a double room ensuite(shower only) with a King size bed, and two single beds on a mezanine floor that overlooks the main living area. There is a second bathroom downstairs also(shower only).
All beds are upstairs so unfortunatley this premise is not wheelchair friendly.
The whole cottage is yours with a fully fitted kitchen, towels, bedding and laundry facilities. There is a TV with local channels and wifi.

Guest access

You will have this lovely cottage to yourselves,

Interaction with guests

We can greet you on arrival and we are always at the end of a phone. We live and work in Bantry so we are never too far away.

Other things to note

The Mezanine floor and steep stairs would make this premise unsuitable for guests with mobility issues. It would also test any parent with very small children climbing up and down the same stairs.

Diarmaid was very helpful and friendly. We were especially impressed that he was so considerate e.g. he let us know that checkout time was flexible on this occasion. As it happens we were ready to go in time anyway but its the gesture that meant so much. The property is a secluded oasis right in the middle of Bantry town. Bantry is such a lovely place, and a wonderful base from which to tour around the multitude of places to see locally. One hidden gem is the Borlin Valley. Certainly delighted we found this property and happily recommend it to others.

Diarmaid's house is very unique, it is in the heart of Bantry town in West Cork but when in the house and lovely outdoor space you could be anywhere, during the day it is tranquil and has a feel of a little Greek Villa. We had great weather and had the lovely patio doors open for fresh air and ate outside in the sunshine. On a weekend night it is not very quiet late at night but just close the windows and have a great night sleep, beds comfy, the only upgrade I would make would be to quilts and pillows, a minor thing - I like feather but I know some people are allergic so that is not practical. Finding the house can be tricky as you drive up a small lane and cannot clearly see the house which is very private and set back from the lane but you can securely park outside there and enjoy a perfect location in a great town. Thanks again Diarmaid we will definitely be back.

Beautiful home in the heart of Bantry. Diarmaid was on hand to welcome us and give us some tips on places to eat, drink and see. Diarmaid went above and beyond throughout our trip, checking in to ensure we were settling in ok and that we had everything we needed. I can't speak highly enough of Diarmaid! I also can't recommend this beautiful, clean and cosy cottage enough! If you choose to rent an Airbnb in Bantry, you'd be crazy not to snatch this place up. Heart of the city, yet it is so peaceful and relaxing. An ideal location to see all that West Cork can offer. Great location and great host. I'll be back!

Many many thanks for a great stay during our first trip to Ireland (Bantry) The owner was so helpful and accommodating that we did not want to leave! The kitchen, two bathrooms and the washer and dryer were a great bonus! The hospitality and tips around the town were outstanding. We had a small issue with the washer but it was resolved and it wasn't too inconvenient. We would definitely come back to stay and I would recommend this lovely cozy spot to anyone interested in visiting the area. Thank you again!!
