It is no surprise that an area so breathtakingly beautiful and majestic as Bantry Bay has caught the attention of many people over the centuries.
Bantry lies at the heart of a very ancient region which carries the remains of the greatest concentration of Megalithic & Neolithic monuments in Europe, pre-dating the pyramids and ancient Greece.
According to the ancient BOOK OF INVASIONS, the first people to have come to Ireland landed at nearby Donemark and local folklore recounts the invasion of foreign peoples - the Tuatha-da-Donan from Greece and the Milesians from the Nile Delta.
Many centuries later, in 1796, Bantry Bay set the scene for a failed invasion by a French Armada, inspired by the Irish revolutionary Theobald Wolfe Tone. Ironically, the stables at Bantry House (the magnificent stately home which formed part of the reward to the man who alerted British authorities to the attempted invasion) now house an interpretative centre dedicated to this historic event.
