Living in Bantry

It’s never been easier to enjoy the benefits of living in beautiful rural Ireland, whilst still maintaining the perks of a corporate role.  The pandemic has taught us that not only is remote working possible, it brings many benefits, including the opportunity to choose where to live, based on factors other than the daily commute.  

Bantry is a picturesque and vibrant town on the Wild Atlantic Way in South West Ireland.  It’s a naturally beautiful location, unspoilt for centuries, rich in culture and heritage.  You’re never far from stunning sea views and there’s so much outdoor to explore and activities to enjoy including hills walks, open water swimming, fishing and all the water sports you can imagine.

West Cork is renowned for its diverse population, being the heart of a very creative community, of artists, artisan food producers, and more.  Visit weekly farmers markets with the most wonderful local produce, craft stalls, food trucks and more.

There are a range of great schools to choose from, as well as a plethora of shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas and more.  And that’s before we mention the value for money on offer when it comes to property prices vs other parts of the country, not to mind saying the views on offer.  

The people here embrace visitors as one of their own, so don’t be surprised if locals strike up a conversation or wave hello to you as you drive past, or invite you to join their swimming or running or other club!   

Bantry is the perfect escape from city life, traffic queues, bustle and crowds.  You’ll miss nothing of city life but the stress.  And with Cork airport just over an hour’s drive away, it’s never been easier to enjoy the best of both worlds.
