Adrigole Harbour
Region South West Coast
Location Adrigole, Co. Cork

A spectacular harbour once quoted at one of Europe's most beautiful harbours in the ICC Sailing Directions. The Caha Mountains to the north of the harbour and Bantry Bay to the south. A colony of common seals live in the harbour, as well as otters and a wide variety of sea birds visit. The white tailed sea eagle sores by occasionally and white tailed sea egrets come fishing. Dolphins are often in Bantry Bay and in the harbour.  This is a  wonderful location for hiking and exploring Hungry Hill and the unspoilt mountains and hills of the Caha ridge and look down on Bantry Bay to the south and Kenmare Bay to the north.
