A QUAINT SMALL TOWN AND GATEWAY TO GARNISH ISLAND
Glengarriff is a small village nestled in the Beara Peninsula in County Cork.
With a population of fewer than 800 inhabitants, the village is mostly popular as a stopover for explorers. Glengarriff has been popular as a holiday destination since Victorian times. The population expands exponentially during the summer!
Located at the end of a long 6-mile valley (10 kilometres), Glengarriff boasts many natural attractions. One of the highlights of the area is the Glengarriff River, which flows along the valley and into Bantry Bay.
Glengarriff is also where you can admire the only interactive sculpture park in Ireland, The Ewe Gallery and Sculpture Garden.
From Glengarriff, you can take a boat trip to Garnish Island. Also known as Ilnacullin Garinish, this island is a popular attraction, open during the high season. It boasts formal gardens and beautiful views over the bay.View County Cork and County Kerry
