The Ellerman House

Local Time

The historical residence was built by the ship owner Sir John Ellerman more than 100 years ago. Since this time the villa towers over Bantry Bay directly at the Atlantic Ocean. Over the decades the private residence of an English Lord has developed into a privately run top class hotel. It resembles more a large villa with guest rooms: Privacy, exclusivity and discreet service are always guaranteed.
