The old Pier at Bantry

The Bantry Bay Steamship Company commenced a thrice-weekly service between Bantry and Castletown Berehaven in 1883 with the 'SS Countess of Bantry’.
This vessel was followed by the 'Princess Beara' in 1901. Other vessels operated by Bantry Bay Steamship Co. were the 'SS Lady Elise' and the 'Lady Betty Balfour,' which operated a passenger service between Bantry and Glengarriff. Passenger sailings on the Bantry Bay route ceased in the 1940’s.
