My partner and I having decided to make our first visit to West Cork booked Sea Lodge through their website so it was a very much pot luck choice, Some pot luck it proved to be!. From the moment of our arrival to our delayed (by two days such was our enjoyment of the West Cork area ) it was the best experience that we could have ever imagined
Firstly the location is awesome with the waters of Dunmanus Bay lapping at our doorstep with each hour bringing a new wealth of light and colour.This was surpassed by the hospitality of our hosts Gloria & Frank an affable fisherman who was only too happy to answers all our questions on the history & beauty spots of the area.
As this is supposed to be a factual review of the accommodation it demands a long discourse which frankly words couldn't suffice other to say that its 5 Star quality at credit crunching cost. The rooms are luxury and breakfast is a challenge even for my robust appetite. To wake with the beautiful inner harbour waters lapping at your feet and a leisurely breakfast before exploring Bantry and surrounding area is where we will return again and again. We will have no hesitation in sending our friends to Sea Lodge but not before we have picked our own dates for fear of being booked out.
. Thanks to Gloria and Frank and Girls for a wonderful experience
