Bantry Area

WALK THE ICONIC MIZEN FOOTBRIDGE
Mizen Head is located at the most Southwesterly tip of mainland Ireland, and if you travel any further you might end up in America!
The cliffs and coastline here are breathtaking, made better by the spectacular Mizen Footbridge which allows visitors to cross over and enjoy views looking back at the Bear Peninsula and views looking down on families of seals and their pups.
TAKE A BOAT TRIP TO GARNISH ISLAND
They say West Cork has its own microclimate, aided by the warm gulf stream that flows close to Ireland’s west coast. This can be seen and felt in all its glory when visiting Garnish Island, a short boat trip from Glengarriff, as plants and vegetation thrive here that can’t be found anywhere else in Ireland.
En route to the island look out for all sorts of marine life, such as dolphins, whales and seals – all of which inhabit the waters close to Garnish. For day trips check out the Garnish Island Ferry which runs daily trips between April and October.
VISIT THE FAMOUS BALTIMORE BEACON
We’re back in Baltimore again as we couldn’t write about West Cork without mentioning the beautiful walk from Baltimore Village up to the iconic Baltimore Beacon. From the top you’ll be afforded with panoramic views of Baltimore Harbour, the roaring Atlantic and over Carbery’s Hundred Isles.
If you come in summer during one of the many sailing regattas, the beacon is a great place to watch all the action.
FIND YOUR INNER ARTIST ON SHERKIN ISLAND
There’s something special about Sherkin Island, with people now calling it the “island of artists”, as there is endless creativity to be found here. Many of this small and remote islands residents make their income for the creative arts, be it painting, knitting, weaving and poetry. Be it stopping for a pint in the Jolly Roger Pub, admiring an art installation in a field or reading a book on beautiful Silver Strand, you can’t help but fall in love with the beautiful West Cork island.
SHOPPING AT BANTRYS FARMERS MARKET
West Cork is a hub for farm to table food, organic produce and fish and meat products (Clonakilty Black pudding, Ummera smoked salmon, Gubeen Cheese), so no visit here would be complete without stopping off at a traditional Farmers Market every Friday on Wolfe Tone Square
SURFING AT GARRETTSTOWN BEACH
While the West coast of Ireland, namely Donegal and Sligo, would be the top places in Ireland to surfing, Garrettstown beach not far from Kinsale is also a fun day out. Ideal for beginners as the waves are only rarely wild, swimming or surfing here is fun for all the family and popular with locals and tourists alike. Book your lesson with G Town Surf School, or if you’re already a pro just rock up with your board and wetsuit and hit the waves.
DEEP SEA DIVING FROM BALTIMORE
Baltimore is a small seaside village in West Cork and the gateway to many of our favourite islands, such as Sherkin, Cape Clear and Hare Island. It’s also one of the best places in Ireland to go scuba diving, thanks to great visibility and lots of shipwrecks to explore for experienced divers.
Baltimore Diving Centre offers a whole range of courses, starting from a few hours right up to 5 say Open Water courses and 10 day instructor courses.
NIGHT KAYAKING IN LOUGH HYNE
I also listed this in one of my top 50 things to do in Ireland, as you cannot find a more unique activity. Organized by Atlantic Sea Kayaking, who welcome both beginners and advanced kayakers for the adventurous yet easygoing night outing, kayaking on a seawater lake under the Irish night sky is something you won’t be forgetting.
Don’t forget to look up and take in all the stars, or to look down and potentially spot a family of otters! Wave your paddle in the water and be hypnotized by the glow in the dark, Bioluminescence plankton!
BEACH DAY IN BARLEYCOVE
The sand dunes and long stretch of beach at Barleycove has always been a firm favourite in West Cork and is consistently rated one of the top 10 beaches in Ireland by Tripadvisor users. The incredible sand dune system here was said to be formed by a Tsunami in 1755, which adds a nice touch of history to your visit!
Besides lounging on the beach or swimming in the crystal clear waters, there some much-loved pubs and restaurants nearby to dine at with O Sullivans Bar in Crookhaven being by firm favourite. I love that they have some picnic tables outside, perfect for soaking in the sunshine on those rare days we see it!
SWIMMING AT THE BLUE POOLS IN GLENGARRIFF
One of the most picturesque towns in Cork, if not all of Ireland, Glengarriff truly is a very special place. When the weather is warm you can head to down to the Blue Pools to take a dip, or head out on a boat trip to see dolphins, or if you’re super lucky, whales.
Check into the historic Eccles Hotel Glengarriff, which dates back as far as 1745 and is one of Ireland’s oldest hotels. It has some of the best hotel room views in the country, ocean views that will have waking up raring to go explore.
VISIT THE BEAUTIFUL BANTRY HOUSE
Bantry House is a beautiful stately home in the town of Bantry, West Cork and was been home to the White Family since 1739. The house has been open to the public since 1946, and today visitors from near and far travel here to take a peek inside one of Ireland’s most beautiful and well kept homes.
Visitors can explore the house and extensive and immaculately kept gardens, enjoy some afternoon tea and can even spend the night in the B&B which is located in the East Wing of the house. For info on costs and visiting times, check out their website.
CATCH A RIDE ON THE CABLE CAR TO DURSEY ISLAND
Imagine taking a cable car to work everyday? No, we’re not talking about some mountain tow in Switzerland, but remote Dursey Island in West Cork. The Dursey Cable Car remains the most used mode of transport to cross the rough Dursey Sound, and is a thrilling experiences to ride as waves crash below.
While the island is inhabited, it has no shops, no pubs and no restaurants, making it a pretty unique place to live and visit!
EXPLORE LISS ARD HOUSE AND GARDENS
Liss Ard Estate is located on the original site of an old Ring Fort, just outside of in West Cork. This stunning country home and immaculately kept gardens are a must visit, even if it’s just to admire the crater-shaped Sky Garden, designed by famed American Landscape Artists James Turrell. This unique concept allows visitors to lie down in the grass in the middle of the “crater” and to gaze up at the clouds or the night sky, without distraction.
There’s also an excellent restaurant on site serving up an extensive breakfast, dinner and Afternoon Tea menu which we can’t recommend enough!
HIKE THE SHEEPS HEAD WAY
Last but certainly not least on our favourite places to visit in West Cork is the Sheeps Head Way, a spectacular walking route along the Sheep’s Head Peninsula. While the walk itself is breathtaking, it’s the story of how this walk came to be that should warm the heart.
The concept of the Sheep’s Head Way the conceived by the late Tom Whitty, an American from Philadelphia who settled on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula in the 1980’s. He saw potential in the Sheep’s Head as a top walking destination and set out over a two year period to turn his idea into a reality. The walk has gone on to win many awards and has helped put the Sheep’s Head Peninsula on the map as a top tourist destination in Ireland.
