The Atlantic Manor Hotel Demolished

The Atlantic Manor Hotel stood for many a year at Garrettstown in Co. Cork and is even still listed on a travel website but it is gone now. Ryan visited there a while back and took some great interior shots of the decaying ruins before they disappeared.

A JCB operator was clearing up some of the rubble when we happened to drive past last year and as luck would have it, I only had my wide angle lens so I was limited in what I could shoot unfortunately. It does force you to learn a new discipline and work with what you have though.

We drove past there recently and all that remains is barren wasteland. People still have their memories.

Jacinta and Adam are possibly coming home today. I’m very happy (and tired!)

    A very exciting day! It was always a day I looked forward to in our house.

    Hopefully we’ll see pictures of a JCB and that horror at Owenahincha sometime soon too. A hotel designed by the Soviet Union!

    Oh I hope they’re back to your home soon! Back to the photos, meanwhile, that’s really good. Will they be putting anything in it’s place?

    Dang, I guess I can’t re-shoot the few places in there I missed last time :( Funny, from the bit of the building that’s still standing in the shot above I can recognise somewhere I stood, trying to decide if I should proceed further into the depths of the dark passageways :D
