Explore Bantry House & Garden, a scenic 18th-century estate that has been in the same family since it was purchased in 1750 by Councilor Richard White. More than 250 years later, the White family still owns, operates, and lives on the property. Visit the historical grounds, which have been open to tourists since 1946. Walk the lush gardens, examine the stables, and view the Queen Anne-style architecture of the building, which was built in 1700. Purchase a refreshment in the Councilor tea room, or stay at the bed-and-breakfast that has been welcoming guests since 1990.

Stayed a night. The room was lovely, access to the grounds, library and Billiards room after the day trippers were gone was a magical experience. Highly recommended.
We were lucky enough to stay a night here. Cozy, welcoming staff and owners. Comfy beds, beautiful library with open fire to ourselves. Amazing views, beautiful breakfast and enjoyed a tour of the house the next day.
