A Pool with a View
Whether you choose the self-catering option with our stylish brand new apartment or one of our bed & breakfast rooms, all our guests are free to enjoy our beautiful private pool house with its Henri Matisse mural. Picture windows frame gorgeous bay and garden views.
With a maximum of just six guests at Caher Lodge Bantry, you will often find that you have exclusive use of the pool house.
We maintain the swimming pool at a comfortable 28℃ and keep chlorine levels to a safe minimum. Easy to negotiate steps lead down into the water. The pool has a barely discernible slope with minimum and maximum depths of 1.4m to 1.5m.
Pool House extras
The steam room seats two comfortably – four at a slight squeeze.
Or why not have a cycle while you enjoy the view?
There is an electric shower and separate WC. Towels and toiletries are supplied.
Windows overlooking the bay and golf course have blinds for guests who prefer added privacy.
The pool house is open for guests’ use between 8am and midday and then 3pm until 9pm.
Our covered barbecue area is available to use if you’re here for more than one night. We can supply B&B guests with the necessary utensils, crockery and cutlery.
The large Weber gas fired barbecue includes a grill and gas ring.
The covered barbecue area has a fixed table with ample bench seating, allowing guests to eat al fresco and enjoy the scenic views over Bantry Bay.
For the golf aficionado, we are right on Bantry Bay Golf Course, just a short stroll down the lane from the club house.
Designed by Christy O’Connor Junior, this 18 hole championship course is among the most challenging golf courses in Ireland.
Whatever your handicap, the views as you play this course are truly stunning.
We offer secure golf bag storage.
Our local beach is a five minute walk down the lane. There is a slipway for small boats and kayaks. Swimming is possible, although not for the faint-hearted.
The beach area affords plenty of bird spotting opportunities with a list that includes: gulls, grey herons, cormorants, oyster catchers, curlews, swans, egrets and ducks.
Otters are occasionally spotted fishing for breakfast close to shore.
