  • young people see sport participation as an integral and enjoyable part of their busy lives;
  • individuals can develop their sporting abilities and enhance their enjoyment, limited only by their talent and commitment;
  • Irish sportsmen and women achieve consistent world-class performance, fairly.

Message to Participants   

Best wishes to the organisers, participants and volunteers taking part in the Sport Ireland Rebel Tour of Cork 2017. 

While taking part in the cycle enjoy the dramatic land and seascapes along the Wild Atlantic Way, in West Cork. 

For generations, artists, makers and producers have been inspired by this coastline.




Bantry Bay Port Company is situated on the south coast Ireland operating within four main industries in Bantry Bay, such as Aquaculture, Oil Transhipment, Stone Export and Tourism.

The majority of ships calling at the port are bulk cargo and tankers, however an increased number of cruise liners anchor either off Glengarriff or in Bantry Inner Harbour, bringing a welcome boost to local tourism in the area.

In 2016 Bantry Bay Port Company commenced the new Bantry Inner Harbour Development. This development marks the start of the regeneration of Bantry inner harbour which is in keeping with the total Inner Harbour Development scheme.

As well as providing a more sheltered harbour environment and marina with increased water depth, the development will also see the pier facilities improved and a new quayside area which will support and promote fishing and tourism activities in the Bantry area. This new facility is due to open in August 2017.

Good luck to all those cyclists taking part in the Sport Ireland Rebel Cycle 2017.

Many of our own staff and customers have taken part in this cycle in previous years and feedback says it is one of the most scenic cycles in Ireland as well as a great challenge. We hope you enjoy the cycle and take some time to enjoy the local area. Well done for taking part!
