Allihies Countryside

Allihies Countryside

The road to the beach at Allihies in West Cork branches in two a few miles from there. This was taken on the scenic route where the road comes out between two hills and you see this beautiful expanse of hills and grassland spread out before you. It’s quite a sight.

My poor photo does little to capture the real splendour of the area!

    You’re right about that. The photo of the bridge in Cobh from a few days back does flatter the area but I think the beauty of Allihies has to be seen to be believed. The maquis in Corsica is the closest I’ve seen. Was down there with the kids last Tuesday, drinking pints and pushing the kids on the swings.

    Hi Donncha, a beautiful photo. I was swimming in Allihies yesterday and it was amazing.

    Richard, Mary – I’m envious of you both. I’m stuck at home and won’t be seeing that part of the country for a long time probably!

    Just back from a weekend in Allihies where the mist hovered constantly on the mountain tops and the dampened the air and visibility was down to a few feet at times. If I hadn’t witnessed Allihies in sunshine in previous years I would have drove through it not realising how beautiful it is – amazing what a little sunshine can do and wonderful to be back even if the weather was bad.
