Glandore – County Cork – South West Ireland
Glandore – Irish: Cuan D’Ór, meaning harbour of the gold or Irish: Cuan Daire, meaning harbour of oak
Welcome to glimmering, shimmering Glandore – the most picturesque harbour village in South West Ireland. Look out the harbour and imagine the lost treasure that was picked up from wreckage on The Dangers rocks. See the prominent Adam and Eve islands where local boating folk advise intrepid sailors to ‘avoid Adam and hug Eve’ or search for the ship’s sail full of gold and silver hidden by Spanish sailors somewhere between two castles and two streams. Reflect at the mystical and ritual site of Drombeg Stone Circle. Trek down to Prison Cove – or escape and relax awhile, indulging your palate in the fine village hostelries.
Glandore is situated just off the N71 approximately 72km south west of Cork City, approximately 41km south east of Bantry. The two largest towns in close proximity are Skibbereen which is 14km west and Clonakilty which is 20km east, you can view a map of the area on Where is Glandore
During the Summer months Glandore is a vibrant and bustling village with parents and children alike partaking and enjoying the Sailing in the unique harbour setting, however there are other Activities and Events, in addition to the Walks within ( and outside) the local area, after all of that activity you will need to Eat, Drink and Sleep to revive the body and soul.
The Sailing starts early with the Schools program usually underway in June and then the official ISA Courses starting in July, and all the time there is club racing for the various fleets.
