Bantry / Beanntraighe & the Bantry House

by globetrott

Bantry ( Beanntraighe in the old gealic language) is mainly well known for the lovely Bantry Bay and for Bantry House that dates back to 1771. It was built for Richard White, the 1st Earl of Bantry (1767-1851) who had an important role in Ireland's history. In 1840 two more wings were added and today it is a museum for precious gobelins, icons, french furniture and great works of Art.
In the former stables of bantry House is the "1796 french Armada Museum" museum - the armada could not land there because of bad weather !
You may enter the park and the terrace facing the Bantry-bay free of charge. Only when you intend to see the galleries and the museum, you have to pay an entrance-fee.
Bantry House is open daily except sundays

The 1796 Armada Museum" is open daily

Bantry House

by Ruai

Bantry House is a stately house that also functions as a B&B (quite expensive but very atmospheric). You can visit it during the day and enjoy an audio guide tour around the open rooms. Its still owned and run by the same family and, while never one of the truly grand country house in Ireland, give a wonderful sense of what it must have been like to live in such a house in its heyday. To me it has a great sense of comfort and I particularly liked the twisty staircase that seems to snake its way to various different landings and the library.

It has lovely gardens, nice walks, a very interesting exhibition on the attempted French landings at Bantry in the 1790's - when Lord Bantry organised the local militia! It also has a teahouse that serves really nice brown bread and soup.

Bantry House also often hosts classical concerts, which are open to the public. See www.westcorkmusic.ie for details.

Learn about Theobald Wolfe Tone

by Jennyjump79

Behind Bantry House is a small museum detailing the life and exploits of Theobald Wolfe Tone (1763-1798). Wolfe Tone, with the aid of the French, sought to force the English out of Ireland. The uprising failed, but its history is fascinating, particularly if you don't know a lot about Irish history.
