I knew you'd get it.

Bantry Bay it is indeed. Convict era.

Fabulous place to while away a weekend.

Correction .... it wasn't convict era at all. Was originally built in 1907. Used until 1973. The shore is still closed to the public, supposedly due to unexploded munitions, though this is probably BS. I went on shore here in the late 1970s, middle of the night, bit spooky.
