All that is wonderful about West Cork blends together beautifully at The Maritime Hotel in Bantry

It's no wonder they call West Cork “A Place Apart”. Nature sets the pace in this beautiful south west corner of Ireland – stretching from smart south-coast Kinsale to three rugged westerly peninsulas reaching into the wild Atlantic. You’ll find more open spaces, scenery and tranquillity than it is possible to take in one visit! The base for this tour, The Maritime Hotel, beautifully blends all this together – world renowned scenery, delicious food crafted from locally-sourced produce and of course the friendliest of West Cork hospitality.


The stylish Maritime Hotel, which is a member of The Gleneagle Group and so offers similar great value packages to its sister hotel The Gleneagle in Killarney, is set on Bantry Bay amid the three rugged peninsulas of Mizen Head, Sheep’s Head and Beara. The hotel offers contemporary accommodation with luxurious bedrooms, featuring one and two bedroom suites offering many of the comforts of home in this beautiful part of Ireland.


The hotel’s location allows for exceptional day trips around the dramatic Beara Peninsula and to nearby Skibbereen taking in both Schull and Mizen Head. Also included in this year’s itinerary is an optional day trip to Cork City (€15 pp) - ring the Shandon Bells in the 300-year-old tower of St. Anne's Church or marvel at the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre's Cathedral before discovering the unique shopping experience of the English Market.


The Maritime Hotel offers luxurious four-star accommodation, many rooms boast spectacular views across Bantry Bay, with complimentary WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities. Guests also have complimentary use of Club Maritime which includes a 19m pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and hydro-pool facilities. Other onsite facilities include You Time Spa which offers a range of facials and massages.
