Welcome to the www.bandon.ie website.

Droichead na Banndan, meaning the bridge of the Bandon River, is just 20 miles west of Cork city and lays claim to the title of being the gateway to West Cork.

 It is close to Ireland’s second city, is in the heartland of some of the richest and most beautiful farmland in the country, and is just a 10 minute drive to some of Ireland’s most spectacular coastline.

 Be you a visitor, a resident or someone doing business in Bandon, the town has a lot to offer.

 The town is also a mere 30 minute drive from Cork city and the airport.

 One of the town’s biggest assets is the Bandon River. Judges in the national Tidy Town’s competition once commented; “Bandon, more than any town in the region has an abundance of natural habitat for wildlife. The majestic Bandon River is a haven for wildlife.”

 The town has seen a huge amount of development take place over the last few years.. With such development, the population of the town has almost doubled, but Bandon still manages to retain a tight community spirit.

 This spirit is shown through the Bandon Music Festival which attracts some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, and the stunning Christmas light display, which illuminated the town for the first time in 2007.

 Not just a Mecca for shopping, Bandon is also a business hub with some well known national and international companies based here including car dealerships, property developers and financial services

 They say nobody can be all things to all people. In Bandon, they certainly give it their best to cater for all people.

 Give Bandon a try, you’ll be pleasantly surprised
