Mullinhassig Waterfall

Poulanassig Waterfall, incorrectly known as Mullinhassig Waterfall is a small waterfall about 30 minutes drive from Blarney, just beyond Coachford. This was my first visit there but it was simple to find through Google Maps.

This Wikipedia page is full of useful information about the surrounding woods.

A Rocky Owenahincha Beach?

I have very fond memories of Owenahincha Beach going back more than 20 years ago when my family stayed there on holiday. I remember a lovely sandy beach, and one morning when fog settled in so close than I could only see a few metres.

On a sunny day it must be beautiful, and it has a well deserved blue flag for its clean water but I was dismayed to see so many rocks on the beach. We met some lovely people there out with their dogs but at least one stray was wandering about and defecated just as we were leaving! 🙁

An Irish Examiner article from 2013 also notes the fall from grace this beach has experienced. It’s very sad, and disappointing.
