TravelPod Member ReviewsDromcloc House Bantry
We enjoyed tremendously our stay at Dromcloc House in Bantry. While it isn't the most modern or upscale, it has the feel of a well-loved home and the people treated us just like family; Dympna and Johnny, our hosts, and their daughter and grandson who were helping out with breakfasts.
One of our rooms was at the end of the house and had tremendous views of Bantry Bay both from the bedroom and the en suite. Our first evening we took a stroll down to the Bay.
Dromcloc House is on a working dairy farm but just a short drive from the town of Bantry. Signposted on the way is a Mass Rock and Holy Well which are worth exploring if you like that sort of thing.
We are already considering a stay there on our next trip to Ireland.

After the show was complete Pat offered to tell all gentlemen a magic piece of advice to use with the ladies. What was ...

Once the show was over, it was back to the hotel for another well deserved rest.
... for drinking like a wuss. Anywho, the second band was a full Irish rock band, and played bar staples like "Whiskey in a Jar" and "Ring of Fire," which is inexplicably the only Johnny Cash song Irish bands seem to know.
We were "fortunate" enough to also experience daylight savings time for the second time that spring while in Ireland, so Sunday morning dawned bright and early. More on our jaunting cart ride and kissing the Blarney stone in the next entry!

During our days in Killarney, we have had the opportunity to experience a couple tours. Yesterday, we visited the Cliffs of Moher and today we traveled the Ring of Kerry. During both tours, we were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Ireland. Our bus driver during the tours also explained the significance of the sights we were seeing during the trip and also answer any questions that we had along the way. For example, ...
