Bantry is a busy, bustling Irish market-town at the head of the famous and beautiful Bantry Bay, in the far south west of Ireland. Bantry is at the heart of West Cork, one of the most naturally beautiful and unspoiled areas of Ireland, full of beautiful bays and beaches, spectacular hills and welcoming hostelries. For the best in Irish walking, cycling, and fishing, or for just relaxing in convivial company, Bantry and the south-west of Ireland offers everything you could want, and maybe a half-pint more!

Bantry (Irish: Beanntraí is a town on the coast of County Cork, Ireland. It lies on the N71 national secondary road at the head of Bantry Bay, a deep-water gulf extending for 30 km (19 mi) to the west. The Beara peninsula is to the northwest, with Sheep's Head also nearby, on the peninsula south of Bantry Bay.
As with many areas on Ireland's south-west coast, Bantry claims an ancient connection to the sixth century Saint Breandan (Naomh Bréanainn) the Navigator. In Irish lore Saint Breandan was the first person to discover America.
The focus of the town is a large square, formed partly by infilling of the shallow inner harbour. In former times this accommodated regular cattle fairs; after modernising as an urban plaza it now features a colourful weekly market and occasional public functions.
