DEEP, NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL
Bantry Bay is called Cuan Baoi in Irish. It runs 35km from north to south and on into the Atlantic Ocean. It is a ria, once a river valley, now filled with salt-sea waters to the depths of 40 metres. Along its shores it is fed by rivers and supports a rich biodiverse environment of flora and fauna. White clover and bog pimpernel, sheep’s sorrel and oxeye daisies all grow wild. While Cormorants, Shags and Great Northern Divers fly overhead. Come and visit, stay and eat our local, organic mussels.
