The village of Glengarriff sits at the top of Bantry Bay, one of the long, deep inlets on the Wild Atlantic Way, that makes this part of the southwest of Ireland such a famous location. Deriving its name from the Irish “the craggy glen,” Glengarriff is a quieter spot than it's sister destinations of Bantry, Kenmare and Killarney, and yet it has all one could require.
The village itself has picturesque pubs and restaurants, a hotel, and shops. There is also a local national school.
The area benefits from a microclimate, warmed by the Gulf Stream, which enables the cultivation of a wide diversity of plants. The clear deep waters of the bay are home to a seal population and also include plentiful very picturesque swimming spots.
A major attraction of Glengarriff is Garnish Island, also known as Illnacullin, with regular boat trips from the village during the holiday season.
