Caption

The Blue Pool, Glengarriff, Bantry Bay, Co. Cork, Ireland. Glengarrif. Ireland is still almost completely unspoilt [sic], and the south west corner - Counties Cork and Kerry - is claimed by many to be the loveliest part of the country. Here, where the Gulf Stream first embraces the Irish shore, the climate is remarkably mild throughout the entire year, and sub-tropical vegetation flourishes - palms, bamboo and azaleas, rhododendron and rare ferns. Glengarriff is set on the shores of Bantry Bay, and is famous as a beauty spot while remaining a tiny, unpretentious, scattered village.
