Not only is Bantry House one of the finest historic houses in Ireland, but it also commands one of the best views overlooking Bantry Bay in West Cork


Bantry House


Bantry House has been home to the White family (formally the Earls of Bantry) since the early 1700s.

It is still owned and lived in today by the family. The House opened to the public in 1946, the first of its kind to do so.

Not only is it one of theĀ finest historic houses in Ireland, but it also commands one of the best views overlooking Bantry Bay in West Cork.

Bantry House tours


Guests can enjoy the house and garden by day taking in the rooms of the house on a tour or self-guide with original content and furniture throughout. Walk through the 19th century designed garden and have a cup of tea or light lunch in the original kitchen of the house, now the tearoom.

The East Wing of the house has been renovated into bed and breakfast accommodation with 6 en suite rooms.

Music festivals held at Bantry House


The house also hosts a chamber music festival in June, a literary festival in July and a traditional Irish music festival in August, as well as being a unique venue for wedding and private functions.
