Bantry Tour

Experience the West Cork Coastal Route! The Bantry Tour takes in mystic mountains, friendly villages, unspoilt beaches, quiet coves, colourful harbours and miles & miles of coastline.

Take a stroll around the colorful Bantry Town and harbour. Here you’ll find a statue of Wolfe Tone, a reminder of the 1796 attempted invasion of Ireland by the French.

Bantry has a good selection of restaurants and bars to enjoy a delicious lunch. With the harbour right on your doorstep you’ll find some of the freshest seafood here, as well as the famous Bantry Bay Mussels.

Bantry House & Gardens is a must see in Bantry. The beautiful gardens offer spectacular views of the bay.

Those interested in ancient history might enjoy a short detour to the Kilnaruane Pillar Stone just outside the town. This pillar stone stands at 2.05m high and has some amazing 9th century carvings.

Optional is a boat trip to the seal-populated Garnish Island with sub-tropical gardens.
