This coastal fishing village with its lovely sheltered harbour, active fishing fleet and surrounded by extensive woodland is connected by a bridge with Glandore Harbour. You will enjoy the freshest seafood in the cosy restaurants and have the ‘craic’ in its many welcoming pubs as you tap your feet to traditional music. You might even be asked to give a song of your own!
Fewer places offer an air of greater tranquillity than this stretch of coastline and wooded parklands.
Dean Swift the famous Irish writer lived here at Rock Cottage in 1723. His poem “Caberiae Rupes”, was written here. While Union Hall was the location for David Puttnam’s film “War of the Buttons”.
