This church was very close to the main square of Bantry. It looked very interesting from the outside but the cleric there said the inside was closed so I cannot comment on the inside.

A typical 19th century Church of Ireland parish church. Nothing spectacular, some stained glass windows and a few historical plaques mostly commemorating the military offspring of local landed gentry.
