Bantry House and Garden

Return to Previous Page

Product Description

Since 1946 the House and Garden has been open to the public. The House has an important collection of art treasures mainly collected by the 2nd Earl of Bantry on his Grand Tour. The House and Garden are open from April to October from 10am to 5pm and are self-guided with guidebooks in many different languages. Each day a free brief introduction on the history of Bantry House will be given at the main house entrance at 11am and 2pm.

Every Tuesday at 2pm a guided tour of the house will be given by Sophie Shelswell-White – General Manager and daughter of the owner. Cost €15 per person, duration 45 minutes. A tour by Sophie is a unique opportunity to find out the “living history” of this stately home with interesting insights and stories into the life of the family of this grand estate.

The garden was inspired by travels of the 2nd Earl. It is laid out in the Italian style over seven terraces, with the house sitting on the third terrace. A Parterre facing south surrounding a wisteria circle which again surrounds a fountain was also created. From there rise the famous Hundred Steps, a monumental staircase built of local stone, set amidst azaleas and rhododendron.

Bantry House was recently featured on Country House Rescue the Channel 4 production where it received very favourable reviews and has prompted many to revisit the House and Garden as well as first time visitors.
