The Eccles Hotel
“No gilded halls for potentates…can boast the beauty here revealed, the stones that deck the angels’ gates, are found in every glen and field.” W. T. Quirk.
The iconic Four Star Eccles Hotel & Spa, provides guests with an all-pervading sense of time suspended, with magnificent views across Bantry Bay in Glengarriff, along West Cork's Wild Atlantic Way. With 250 years of fascinating history, and interesting guests threaded through the warp and woof of this impeccable hotel, making it the perfect place to treat your loved one to a fabulous getaway. Well-appointed, en-suite bedrooms are elegantly furnished, with muted hues and a sleek modern design, which complements the hushed serenity of the hotel. Expect fresh, fabulous and always seasonal food, courtesy of Chef Eddie Attwell, who has previously worked in two Michelin starred restaurants, so he knows how to please the palate. After a deep and restful night's sleep, pootle off to the Spa in your dressing gowns and let all your worries drift downstream.
Admire an exclusive Art collection like no other. Having privately been collected by the 2nd Earl of Bantry on his grand Tour (who previously lived here), you are in for an incredible treat. Ideally nestled in a stunning area of West Cork, this fascinating house is still owned by the direct descendants of the1st Earl of Bantry. *
