A beautiful stay!
We enjoyed the beautiful Jewel Box on Bantry Bay. The home was peaceful and had beautiful views of the water and green hills. A real gem! The town of Bantry was a wonderful Harbour town that had everything you need with it's quaint shops and pubs. The food was wonderful and the people friendly! We would highly recommend this great home and area!! Very happy memories!!
Our Stay on Bantry Bay
We can't say enough about our wonderful stay in this great house. The location is, in my mind, what Real Ireland looks like. There were stunning views from every room . The house was immaculate and very well equipped. Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay here! We loved visiting with your neighbors, the Cows, each morning!!
What a treat we had waiting for us at the Jewel Box on Bantry Bay. We four retirement aged people could get in to town, and its great eating spots and mega-friendly people, in short time or explore by foot or car the remote beauty near by. Rest, relaxation, reading - all the comforts of home were ours at the house. Meeting Tim was the topper on the cake. This trip, this place, will be a warm and wonderful memory. I wish I could go there every year!

We traveled around Ireland by train from Dublin to Limerick, then Galway, and back to Dublin, where we rented a car and drove to Bantry. Ireland is beautiful top to bottom, and so are the people. We had a great time everywhere, found the people to be friendly, exceedingly helpful and fun. That was especially true when we got to Bantry, met Tim and moved into the house for a few days. We explored all around, found great pubs and eateries, many of which were recommended by Dan….all good! I can't say enough about the house and the locale, it is just great. Dan was very helpful, even when we spent a couple of days in New York City on the way over, lining us up with a driver to and from the airport. Tim is so Irish, just what you would think Ireland would be about. A very helpful guy, and a lot of fun to have a beer with. With any luck at all we will be back!

I have visited Ireland many times since 1980, our first trips we toured all around the island. Then my husband and I started staying in cottages in the West Cork area. When you rent via internet you have to trust that the property will be as pictured. The Jewel Box exceeds its description because you can not put in words the feeling derived from its views and the peace sitting in the sunroom watching and hearing the waves on the beach. I used the binoculars to watch the shorebirds and keep tabs on a very large heron that fished along the stream in the field by the beach.
I didn't do as much driving this visit because I found great walking and gorgeous scenery right outside the door of the cottage or close by in Bantry and Durrus areas. It was convenient to be close to Bantry. I could buy a pizza at the Brick Oven (the best) and have it back to the cottage while it still was hot. Lots of good restaurants within a short drive. There are recommendations in the Welcome Book which are spot on.
I did visit a couple holy wells because I enjoy the historical and mystical aspects of Ireland. One well west of Macroom and another just down the road. Crookhaven, Mizen Head, and Barley Cove beach are close and worth the trip, especially O'Sullivans at Crookhaven.
The cottage is well maintained and has the comforts of easy living. I enjoyed the woodstove on cool days and the sunroom could be as warm as Florida. Tim and Eliza were helpful in getting me settled and staying in touch.
I hope to return and bring a family member along. I certainly would recommend the cottage to friends and family. I am fortunate to have found this treasure and appreciate the owner's responsiveness to inquiries. One more thing most important to me since I traveled alone is that I felt very safe in this area of Ireland and the cottage in particular.
What a great vacation rental. Very modern and clean cottage with water views from every room. Isolated yet easy access to restaurants in Bantry. We really enjoyed the hikes to Sheep's Head and Mizen Head. Also, not to be missed is Killarney National Park, especially if you don't have the time to travel the whole Ring of Kerry. We did have Internet and it was very valuable to help us plan our outings for the next day.
