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.

... our day turned into "The distractions of Dunloe - the irish dancing, flapping musical", as a million midges started to bite us. Oh the sight of it - we were like a pair of imbeciles doing an irish jig! As the locals say - you would have laughed your leg off! The wee beasties seemed to take great joy in the event, so by the end we were resolute, albeit particularly spotty. Drove home tenderly, ...
... with me. Right in the middle of me explaining to the Irish guys what I and the two guys beating the hell out of are doing in Ireland; I notice a cop car pulling around the corner. At which point both the Irish guys and I start yelling at Aaron and josh that the cops are coming. They quickly break it up throw on their shirts and Aaron takes out his camera and pretends to take a picture of the nearby church while the cops drive by ever so slowly. For ...
... to take in the breathtaking views of the Irish countryside, from the green hills to the white sand and turquoise blue waters of the Atlantic ocean. Our guide was quite hilarious, even though it was fairly obvious he used the same jokes everyday! Our first stop was at a turf cutters village where we saw a few huts in original condition and some explanations of the use of peat that is found in bogs all over Ireland. Phin enjoyed his birthday Irish coffee and ...
... we drove round the Ring of Kerry - a 100 mile coastal drive with amazingly beautiful scenic views. The weather wasn't entirely kind to us, but it was still a great day. I had no idea that Ireland was so picturesque. It was a real revelation.
As Steve and I were not going on the optional excursion, we got off the bus in Killarney itself and looked around the shops before walking back to our hotel which was a little out of town.
