A rare visit to the Eblana Collection with both the Irish and the Beachcomber Australia's perspective addressed in a really lovely scene. Location not known but no doubt but that won't be for long. The upsidey/downsie format really is interesting!
Yesterday's image, "Sweet Bunree" was Explored last evening so congratulations to all for your contributions.

Bantry House methinks. The garden layout looks like it matches. maps.app.goo.gl/9rQTRmY1WynDYEDQ6

many thanks for adding to "upsidey downsie"
The Kataloguer says Unidentified river or lake but the shore is clearly tidal.
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] A nearby IMP L_IMP_3242 is Bantry before 1900 per the lack of clock on the tower, but after the railway extension in 1892.
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeegee] Agree. The Wikipedia article en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bantry_House has a link to their website and the images on their official side to me seem to near perfectly match this image. As far as I can tell the NLI haven't added EXIF coords on this image at the time I've posted this and I'm curious if they will after they are certain of the location.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] The EXIF information for these doesn't exist because they are digital copies of 100+/- year old glass plates. The digital scanner information is available but of no value!
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] The MARC tab of the catalogue entry on some photos does include co-ordinates when known, for example this one of Castletownbere includes +51.6539 -9.9111 which is either Castletownbere or the Indian Ocean North East of Madagascar, depending.
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] The reason I say that is because when loading the Robert French Sweet Bunree commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sweet_Bunree.jpg (which I assume was also a glass plate) that came with EXIF co-ordinate information from the flick2commons option on the commons importer. I was going to load this one but while Robert French images have no license issues I hesitated as this one needs a anonymous tag and I'm juggling too much to get it right.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley thanks. Ah. perhaps thats where the Wikimedia commons importer tool gets that information from. Actually as far as I'm aware Flickr strips the EXIF from the image and stores it elsewhere.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] For images in this flickr stream, many are added to the flickr map, which could be the source of the info too.
Interesting that both the Eblana and the French were taken from the same spot, unlike all the dozens of Flickr shots taken. The appear to be taken close in time judging from the similarity of the foliage in both pictures.
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Thanks. I actually put it across this evening to Wikimedia commons and the co-ordinates were found automatically by the import tool (which they weren't this morning). See commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bantry_Hosue,_Bantry_Bay_...(The_Irish_and_the_Beachcomber%27s_perspective).jpg . This is very much in line with the suggestion the image was geotagged (and the little map appeared) following comment feedback and then the import tool was able to pick up the geo coordinates at if they were in the EXIT file. The image pair here appear to be from a pair of developed pictures as the quality from a good glass plate scan/photo might be better.
