Corrin Hill

Reviewed By Steven2212 - Wylie, Texas

My Wife and I went today to Corrin Hill for the first time and loved it. We walked for about 5 miles on all the trails and went to the top where the cross is twice. It's a lovely wooded walk and makes you feel like your miles away from civilization. It is steep in parts but worth the exertion and great as excersize. We did have a little trouble finding it though. If your going for the first time set your gps for the fermoy golf course. It's on the same road.

Barnane Walk

Reviewed By Leslie H - Kalamazoo, Michigan

I have relatives who live along the river. It is a beautiful walk. You can feed the ducks, watch the rowers from the rowing club, walk past the style into the pastures and along the shores of the river for a long ways. Very quiet and peaceful.

Labbacallee Wedge Tomb

Reviewed By James L - Fermoy, Ireland

Interesting site to see. Small but intriguing. Unfortunately the site is in a dangerous place for parking. There is not actually a designated parking area except for a little space outside the site which will hold two vehicles at most. It is right on the road side and extreme cation is important.

Bridgetown Priory

Reviewed By SantaFeTravler - Santa Fe, NM

This is a remarkable ruin of an important medieval Priory. It is fairly well maintained despite it being off the beaten track and completely free. Excellent signage so it has a high educational value. The location is simply beautiful. Not to be missed if you are a history buff.

Ballyhooly Castle and Castleblagh Woods

Reviewed By Beecher82 - Brisbane, Australia

This area was included in an EEC environmental study in the nineties and proved to have the cleanest air in Europe. The castle overlooking the river is quite picturesque and the nearby woods offer pleasant walks. Further south beyond the woods stands the Nagle Mountains. If you dare to conquer the peak of Knock na Scath or find and sit on the Suiochain na Mna Fhinne on a clear day, you will not only enjoy a pleasant climb but you will be spoilt by the surrounding views of the Galtees, the Ballyhouras and the Knockmealdown Mountains circling the Blackwater Valley.

Christ Church, Church of Ireland, Fermoy, County Cork

Reviewed By MO4975678910 - Amherst, New Hampshire, United States

I had wanted to visit this Church because my Father's Father had preached at the Church before leaving Ireland to serve as a Missionary to the Native Tribes in Canada. The Church is on the route of the local town walk, and is located across the river from the Patrick Street shopping area of Fermoy. Out front of the Church there are the three "Statues", and across the street is the Virginia House B & B, a great place to stay run by Leo and Mary. Up the hill are the Barracks areas and the Famine Graveyard. An interesting side note is that the entrance to the church was structured so that when the regiments visited they could enter the building without having to lower the regiment's Standards.
