View of Bantry Bay in West Cork, Ireland. It is the largest bay in south west Ireland and stretches almost thirty miles from the town situated on its banks, to its entrance and the ocean. The Beara Caha mountains surround the bay. The bay has twice been the site of foreign invasions, by the Spanish in 1689 to support James II and by the French in 1796 to support an Irish uprising.
