Everything is great about this place. Thomas and Sheila were easy to communicate with, friendly and had everything set up for my stay. The house is very clean and comfortable and is located in a very convenient location just a few minutes walk from shops and cafes. It has everything someone would need for a relaxing stay and I can fully recommend it to anyone heading to the Bantry area looking for a value for money and great quality.

This was the perfect place to stay. On the edge of town, but only a 10 min walk to shops, restaurants, and the amazing bay views. Thomas and Sheila both met us and had a fire already started which was amazing. They also stocked the fridge with essentials and wine! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I would definitely recommend.

Great warm welcome from Sheila & Thomas to a lovely home. Upon arrival everything with the house was demonstrated and explained very clearly with a very useful information sheet with WiFi password etc. The real icing on the cake however was the 'welcome pack' that contained a bottle of wine, eggs, tea/coffee, milk, butter, orange juice etc that helped get me started. Very kind of them and would be delighted to stay with them again.

Signed up to use Airbnb when travelling and liked the idea so much we became hosts. The house is not our family home. It is yours for the duration of your stay. We look forward to welcoming you to Bantry.
We commenced hosting 1st July 2014 and, to April 2016, we have had the pleasure of hosting more than 40 bookings.
