TUESDAY DAY 3

Free day with an opportunity to enjoy the hotel's excellent leisure facilities or explore the harbour town of Bantry. Alternatively why not walk up to Bantry House (entrance not included), one of the first historic houses to open in Ireland and commanding one of the best views overlooking Bantry Bay. Dating back to the second Earl of Bantry and reflecting his many expeditions, the structure of the surrounding garden has changed little through the years.

WEDNESDAY DAY 4

A full day excursion along the Beara Peninsula, dotted with small fishing villages with stunning backdrops. Travel over the Healy Pass to Lauragh, Adrgroom and Eyeries, then on to Castletownbere, once a haven for smugglers. Continue along the shores of Bantry Bay, through Adrigole to Glengarriff. In the afternoon we take a trip with the Harbour Queen Ferries to Garnish Island and its Italianate garden that flourishes in this temperate climate. Keep an eye out for the colony of seals along the way.
