  • Mrs Talbot

    “I did read the bad review but we had to book this cottage after the original one cancelled on us!”

    The list of cleaning jobs was awful, far more than I expected and there were 3 copy’s of it as we arrived which was a bad start. Iv used holiday homes for 14/15 yrs now and have never been asked to strip beds, wash the floors and clean bathrooms. It put such a black cloud over our stay. We always leave a property tidy and wiped clean.

    - Mrs Talbot, August 2019

    We have great pride in our home and it is always presented to our customers in a clean and welcoming condition. The 'list', is only a reminder to people to leave the house as you found it. I can honestly say that 99% of people do not have an issue with this. They clean and tidy as they go, as they would in their own homes. The 'list' bears no threat to these people. On the other hand, the list is a thorn in the side of the small minority of people who have no respect for our home and who leave it in a state that is not acceptable. Would you like to see bed linen left on the ground, delph and cutlery on the draining board, empty shopping crates outside your door. That is just a synopsis of the condition my home was left in after the departure of the Talbot family. I will not apologise for asking people to respect our home. - Sykes owner relations

Bantry is a town of sweeping sea views and varied colourful buildings, located in West Cork between Sheep's Head and the Beara Peninsula. It is home to a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants ideal for dining out or for experiencing local Irish music and culture. 'Bantry House' is well worth a visit, sitting in an elevated position above the town and being home to a rich collection of tapestries, furniture and art, while there are also beautiful gardens to explore, which have been restored and are open to the public. Just a short boat ride from the town in the heart of Bantry Bay you will find Whiddy Island and Garnish Island. Garnish Island was turned into an exotic garden in the early 20th Century and is home to a variety of plant species, which thrive in the warm, moist climate and peaty soils. For outdoor enthusiasts there are opportunities for golf, sailing, scuba diving, walking and cycling nearby, as well as a whole host of local treasures just waiting to be discovered.
