This was an unscheduled stop for me on my Wild Atlantic Way drive. I had come from Cork via Mizen Head and Sheep's Head and decided to stay overnight in Bantry and found Donemark Rise somewhat by accident while looking around for a place to stay. It was a great find for the following reasons: (1) Teresa was a very pleasant and friendly host. (2) The b&b is located in a very quiet, beautiful rustic setting (You might see a few photogenic goats munching the grass around the house - see photo enclosed). It's about 3 km to town so you'll need a car. But there's plenty of private off-street parking. (3) The house is 5 star quality. The bedrooms are luxurious, very clean and comfortable with ample space for your luggage and other stuff. Beds are super comfortable and pillows, sheets, spreads, etc. are high quality. (4) The bathroom has both a bath and a shower and a variety of amenities, all exuding quality. (5) The breakfast room has a nice ambience and breakfast was delightfully delicious. (6) Wifi was very good and fast everywhere. (7) The price is very reasonable, even for a "walk in".
This was by far the best of the of the 7 b&b's I stayed in the Republic during my 2 1/2 weeks driving tour of Ireland. If you've a car, I highly recommend experiencing the unrivalled charm, quality and hospitality of Donemark Rise.
