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.

... too many things to see. We headed into Mizen Head which claims to be the home of the worlds most southern pint. Whilst we couldn't dispute their claim one thing that could have also mentioned was that it may also serve pints at the worlds windiest spot as that day it was blowing a gale with a very cold wind chill factor. Talking to the young barman who was a scotsman down here for a few years to save cash, he mentioned business gets very ...
... Dolmen, a portal tomb (two or three rocks supporting a large flat rock similar to Stonehenge) dating back about 4500 years. I looked under and around the rocks, but couldn't find a leprechaun! I'm still looking.
We stopped by Bunratty Castle on the way to Killarney after the Burren. Bunratty Castle was built in 1460 by the MacNamara clan. It has been restored and is open for tours (and hosts a ...
... and N Z. The ring goes all round the bottom part of Ireland and is the biggest tourist attraction in Ireland after the statue of Molly Malone in Dublin! All around here there is evidence of the great famine in 1845, little famine houses still exist in the fields, half fallen down but current faarmers leave them there out of respect and to remind us of their struggle.
When we thought we#d seen it all, we stopped at Dingle Bay and it is spectacular. ...
... Les's change from last night. She changed it back into notes for me, and my bag was much lighter. We headed up to Tralee by a different road, and ended up on a one lane road going over a mountain, where people have to stop and pull over to let you go past. Must be absolute madness in summer when it is busy up here. Again it was gorgeous views, but it was all covered in fog today, so not much good for photo's. ...
... a plodding trail ride. My horse, Hercules, was a wonderful companion, very alert and curious. During our ride we started in the fields, then through some peat bogs, forests, along the lake, it was great. I don't have very many pictures because during one particularly brisk canter I managed to launch my camera out of my pocket, didn't realize it until about 10 minutes later, so we had to go back. Jeanene then put it in her zippered pocket. We also ...
