Welcome to The Retreat

An 18th-century Georgian country house, The Retreat Country House is a luxury private rental property situated outside the town of Bandon, the gateway to West Cork. Just a stone's throw away from upscale golf courses, sandy beaches, and national parks, your private stay at The Retreat will grant you the opportunity to fully immerse in the delights of West Cork and countryside living.

During your stay, The Retreat and surrounding grounds are exclusively yours to enjoy. The venue presents an ideal setting for family gatherings, special occasions, a getaway with friends, or small celebrations.

Embrace the indulgence of this six-bedroom historic residence once home to the Duchess of Westminster. Enjoy the tranquility and relaxed feeling of home that it has to offer you. Have your very own retreat at The Retreat!

Only problem: We did not stay long enough! Gorgeous, elegant, warm, inviting and comfortable grand home in an idyllic setting with beautifully maintained grounds. But The Retreat’s charm is surpassed by gracious, attentive owner, Miriam and her daughters. Truly, the epitome of Irish hospitality, generosity and gracious living. Some of our favorite memories will always be the kids playing cards on the floor while the adults relaxed in front of the nightly lit fire. But the most amazing highlight was the spectacular dinner created by private chef, Shane, on our final night. Beautiful memories to last a lifetime. Our party of 10 with ages from 7 to 83 all left with full hearts and memories to last a lifetime. Looking forward to returning.”
