I decided to stay in Bantry during my trip in West Cork. I feel it was a pleasure to stay at Doire Liath. Therese gave me a warm welcome and I immediately felt at home. The room was cosy and Therese turned the heating on when I arrived as the day was a little bit chilly.

We spent two nights in Therese B&B. We felt at home from the moment we walked in. Nice house, small but perfectly adequate rooms, everything tidy, own bathroom. Lovely tasty breakfast. Therese was super helpful and very caring. We felt totally at home.

Therese and Sean made us feel at home right away. Excellent breakfast and the rooms are perfect. Great location for exploring the town of Bantry. We stayed there before and after our hike of the Sheep's Head Way. I highly recommend that you stay here!

"Any room at the Westlodge!!"
"Stairs are a little narrow to haul bags up"
"Chose the upstairs loft room if you are traveling with family."
"Couples with children should asf for the 4-person suite"
""A little bit of paradise!!!" The host and hostess were most gracious. My dad, Sidney, and myself benefited greatly from recommendations to see little church, and green forest, enjoy the walk, visit friday market, and other superior recommendations such as eat at Connor's Seafood-a world class experience-"ate there only twice" Thanks for everything including great hospitality, great breakfast and enjoyed meeing the family members.
