Bantry, 2009

On a cold day like today I want to think about summer, and summer of 2009 was one the best so far. It was sunny and warm, we travelled a lot and explored Ireland. I still have some unpublished photos from that year, so I will get back to it for sure again.

Bantry (Beanntraí) is a coastal town about an hour and a half away from Cork. It’s a small town, but it could be a great starting point for exploring the south coast and Beara peninsula.

There is a small island just near the Bantry bay called Whiddy Island. I haven’t been there, but definitely want to. There is a ferry service connecting the island and the main land, so hopefully it will be as peaceful and great as the Bere Island near Castetownbere.

    Cute little town :) Those black headstones in the graveyard look really strange – like they’re “censor” blocks or something.
