Nestled on Southern Ireland’s Beara Peninsula in County Cork, the tiny village of Adrigole has a population of just 450 and has become a favourite hideaway for folk wanting to get away from it all. Its proximity to the Kerry border makes it the perfect place to explore two magical counties in the same time period. The lovely location and excellent sailing conditions mean that Adrigole’s harbour is a Mecca for fans of marine activities. Central to this is the West Cork Sailing centre and offers a wide range of courses and instruction, including canoeing, speedboat training and a certification service for those wishing to apply for sailing licenses. The harbour also has ample mooring and, as you would expect superb marine services for visiting yachts and pleasure craft.
The village also attracts a lot of anglers, tempted by the lure of the excellent sea fishing and the nearby lakes and rivers. Its location within the Ring of Kerry makes it a favourite with site seers and walkers. Widely considered one of the most beautiful wildernesses in the world, it is peppered with historic sites – Kilkaskin Cemetery, the Gallaun Stones etc, and wonders of the natural world - the legendary Hungry Hill and awe inspiring Mare’s Tail waterfall to name just a couple.
The village itself has a small selection of very nice places to eat out and a handful of cosy pubs and busy shops. But really Adrigole is all about the atmosphere and in all honesty, most visitors are content simply to be staying in such an idyllic part of the world. Needless to say the locals are a friendly, helpful and entertaining bunch and will always give you a warm welcome and hearty hospitality. All this and Ireland’s legendary magic.
