1. Re: which area to stay in?

Hi there?

Will you guys have a car? If so I would reccommend Cascades on 52 (www.cascadescollection.com/cascades-on-52/) .... this is in Bantry Bay and we stayed there last year and it is beautiful! All the rooms have the most amazing views. The staff are wonderful too. I highly recommend.

If you do not have a car .... then I would suggest staying close to Seapoint area. I know that Cascades have opened a new hotel down there called Cascedes on the Promenade (cascadescollection.com/cascades-on-the-prome…). This is a great value chic boutique hotel. I have heard great things about the bistro at the hotel so defo advise checking it out.

I agree with Diva, 17 on Loader is your best choice. It is located in de Waterkant an attractive and colourful neighbourhood with easy access to a variety of restaurants and shops. There is also 24 hour security guards patrolling the streets throughout 'the village'.
