This is a magic place for a walk, sit-down, or picnic. Great for photography. Try landscape, seascape and macro here. Come in Summertime to experience the Butterfly Island at its best.

I grew up near here... A fabulous walk to get away from it all. It is a delicate ecological area so please respect the area.

Free walking trail through an area with lovely views of lakes and rivers with many species of birds. For the devoted bird watcher there is a purpose built elevated platform for sitting and observing. On the Southern side, there are many miles of quite country lanes to walk if so desired.

The Gearagh gets its name from "An Gaoire", the wooden river. You can reach it via the R584 on the Inchageela - Gougane Barra Road only 5 km from Macroom town in West Cork. There is a small car park. Sadly it's not well signposted. However it's worth visiting as it is a beautiful and peaceful place with undemanding walks... More

Peaceful walking and tranquil views- the perfect place to get out into the fresh air! Park in one of two car parks and explore the paths and must see bird watching station.
