The Bantry Bay House sits right at the edge of Bantry Bay. Beautiful views are great from any spot on the property. In my attached photos, I only showed one of the gardens, but there are many gardens from the formal to just some flowers growing in a garden area.

This is one of the heritage phots that you will find in Ireland. Many beautiful homes that were owned my the British landlords now are owned by the Irish Government.

It is my understanding that you can stay overnight at the Bantry Bay House. I did not do that so I cannot provide details.

The Town of Bantry is a beautiful old town with many nice places for lunch if you are going to continue on the main highway.

Hello! Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed the views.

Just to correct one part- the estate is privately owned by my family, not the Irish government.

Thank you for visiting and reviewing.

House was closed due to Covid, but the gardens are incredible and the views from the top of the steps are stunning.

Impressive house overlooking Bantry Bay. Unfortunately part of the vast gardens aren't really looked after and offer overgrown vegetation. Cov 19 restrictions didn't allow us to visit the inside.
