Please choose the section of our site which you wish to visit first from the menu above.
We are very proud of our landscape and of our culture and our history and are keen to share it with you in person or via this website.
Inchigeelagh village is located in the parish of Inchigeelagh, once known as Iveleary (from the Irish Uibh Laoighaire - The Homeland of the O'Learys). The village and its twin, Ballingeary, about 8 miles away, are the main inhabited areas in the parish, but there are other hamlets too. The parish stretches along the banks of the River Lee, whose source is in the mountains surrounding Gougane Barra. For most of its course down to the sea near Cork City, the Lee forms a string of lakes, the area sometimes being known as The Co.Cork Lake District. The scenery is stunning, the air is sparkling and the lakes are clear. There is good company, good music and good food & drink. Come and see for yourself.
