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.

Good location. Middle of Bantry yet up quiet (steep) lane. Easy communication with host.

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.

Very cute place. Great location. Loved Bantry. Diarmaid was great. He was totally flexible with us when we ended up running late and totally inconvenienced him. And he told us about Bantrys outdoor market which was really cool. Highly recommend.

This location was terrific. A little tough to find initially due to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, but Diarmaid led the way via telephone and found us. Parking was free and close, along with a spot right in front of the home. We were able to go out on the town while easily being able to retreat to the house, which was nestled down a quiet and safe alley. A great value for anyone looking to see the town, go golfing at Bantry GolfClub, and enjoy the cafe's on the main street. We drove to Mizen Head which was well worth the drive (drive safely!) Thanks so much!

Ma's cottage is a lovely space with plenty of room to comfortably house 6 guests. The kitchen has what you need to make meal and the hot water was reliable. We enjoyed our stay in Bantry as it was a good jumping off point to explore Mizen Head and the surrounding area.

Im new to Air BnB so all this is a fresh experience. I have travelled a lot and im looking forward to being a host instead of a guest.
I love anything to do with the Sea from diving , Sailing , rowing and swimming and of course eating seafood as I am marine biologist who owns a Seafood restaurant in Bantry.
West Cork is a great destination for all of these things and i can point you in the right direction if you enjoy watersports or any other acticvity
