"St Finbarrs sanctuary-Gougane Barra West Cork" County Cork Favorite Tip by Hynesite

County Cork General: 7 reviews and 10 photos

  Gougane Barra
by Hynesite

Favorite thing: A magic place, lost in West Cork's rolling hills, with Cork citys own river Lee rising here-its beautiful lakeside chapel, and the historical ties to Corks own founder St Finbarr add a special feel- a must .

Fondest memory: Activities in Gougane Barra include cycling; the Cork City-Beara-Gougane Barra cycle route passes through Gougane Barra and finishes here. Gougane Barra is a favourite location for trout anglers and painters
