We offer secure off street private parking for guests and you can also choose to walk along the foreshore of Bantry bay with its breathtaking views of the Caha mountain range, this walkway is accessed directly behind our home and is about a 20minute easy stroll to the town centre.We are ideally situated for exploring the nearby Mizen, Beara and Sheep’s Head peninsulas and can offer you packed lunches if you decide to spend the day walking or driving through the most spectacular scenery you will find anywhere in Ireland. Famous Gougane Barra is about a 20 minute drive from us inland through the spectacular “Pass of Keimeneigh” which literally means the “step of the deer” On arrival to our home we offer you complimentary tea/coffee with homebaking and afternoon tea in our garden or comfortable sitting room with stunning views of nearby Seskin Mountain. We are less then a mile from the Bantry Bay 18 hole golf club and the area also offers a variety of watersports, fishing, horse riding and sea angling.

Stayed for 3 nights and we all loved it. Therese and Sean made our stay extremely comfortable. We loved the breakfasts and our lovely cups of tea before bedtime. The girls loved the morning visits from Alfie and Scotty the friendly dogs. Would definitely recommend this gem in Bantry.

This is a well-positioned B&B which provides a warm and friendly welcome as well as great food. The breakfast room gets the best of the morning sun in which you'll enjoy Therese's great breakfasts and Sean's yummy homebaked bread. At the end of our long walk, we were lucky to get a room with a bath and Therese even provided bubble bath!!

What a lovely homely place to stay. Theresa was so helpful and kind. Had a wonderful local knowledge of all things to do. The food was excellent and a great choice for breakfast. All the Covid protocols were observed and we had a lovely short stay. Excellent value and would recommend if travelling in the area.

After a car breakdown we needed a B&B to stay in so took a shot that they would have a room, we could not have had a better experience. When we arrived we were stressed and tired but that changed in minutes with a lovely cup of tea and ginger bread in the garden. Everyone was just so lovely and the room and B&B were fabulous (they even gave us a incredibly generous gift of a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate our honeymoon). I cannot recommend Doire Liath highly enough and we will definitely be back.

Therese was the perfect host. She was friendly and welcoming. She was helpful with recommendations for somewhere to eat in Bantry and told us about the glorious Bantry Bay walk. The rooms were lovely and bright and airy, comfortable beds and nice ensuite with shower. We all loved our breakfast in the morning, in particular Sean's homemade bread and Therese's home grown grilled tomatoes! I wanted peppermint tea and Therese made it from her own mint leaves in the garden - fab! Thank you both for a lovely stay.

Therese and Sean were wonderful hosts, serving tea and biscuits when we arrived and a made-to-order breakfast (I had a double portion of porridge served just as I like it; wife had eggs); the usual cold cereal and bread also available. Unfortunately I have to report that our room was TINY; hard to move around in and a struggle to find places for all our luggage that we would not trip over. Same with the bathroom. The bed had a duvet for a cover, which are a pain if you get hot in the middle of the night.

We received a very warm welcome from Therese who so very kind and helpful. We had a lovely room at the front of the property (which also has good car parking). The bathroom is a little small, but hey you don't spend your hols in a bathroom plus there were lots of towels for us. Bantry is a lovely town and is an easy 5-10 minute stroll from Doire Liath. We loved the set up in the ding room where you get to sit with other guest and talk. We did find this a refreshing change to other places we stayed and found other peoples experiences fun. We would stay here again.

My son and I were hiking through Ireland and we stayed at Diore Liath our first and last night of our trip. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. They even helped with us with our luggage while we explored the town.
