I was there last October, stayed in the Maritime which I loved but I have to say Bantry town needs a lot of TLC at the moment. I am not much into pubbing and clubbing so I can't comment on that however, we were there at the weekend and I didn't see much evidence of a club but obviously lots of pubs.

You can walk around bantry in about 20 minutes, the beauty of the area for me was not just Bantry but the magnificent surrounding countryside. It is really stunning. The sheeps head peninsula is superb a little hidden gem sticking out into the atlantic, so good, I hardly want to tell anyone about it, but I always do !!

Bantry is not known for it's restaurants although just down from the hotel there is the award winning O'Connors Seafood restaurant which was too expensive for us.

We ate in the hotel restaurant on night one and it was very good, and on night two we ate in the hotel bar which was better value. I had a big bowl of mussels and chips with a pint or two and it was just what the doctor ordered.

All in all I loved the weekend in Bantry but Bantry itself was not the reason why. Bantry House is the star attraction in the area but we did not get to see it as we had other fish to fry !!

I think you will enjoy.
