Owned and operated by the O’Callaghan family since 1946, the Bantry Bay Hotel offers a unique welcome perfected by over sixty years of practice!
The Wheelhouse Bar at the Bantry Bay Hotel is complimented by fourteen tastefully presented guest bedrooms, restaurant, comfortable sitting room, welcoming public areas and for the more energetic, Bantry’s premier nightspot. Situated on Wolfe Tone Square, so named after the Irish patriot who led the failed French invasion fleet into Bantry Bay in 1796, the Bantry Bay Hotel offers a truly traditional Irish hospitality experience. This significant event in Irish history is reflected in the Wheelhouse Bar, with Maritime memorabilia vying for attention with open fires and the friendliest of staff.
For the sports enthusiast, we’ve got a story or two to tell! Con O’Callaghan, who first opened the Bantry Bay with his wife Eileen, was a member of the Irish Olympic Team in Amsterdam in 1928, together with his brother, Dr. Pat, who had the honour of being the first man to win Olympic Gold under the Irish Flag, defending that title successfully in Los Angeles in 1932.
Beautiful wood panelled bar with a maritime theme, binnacles and compasses and other original seafaring pieces and artwork are all on show. We also cater for sit-down functions for up to 80 persons in our restaurant. The nightclub next door has a capacity of 400.
