Glandore Off The Beaten Path
Glandore is already off the beaten path, but if you like your West Cork scenery with a pint or a good meal, you can't do much better. From any direction, you come down into the tiny harbour that looks across the estuary. The view is beautiful and the harbour itself, caught at the right tide, has turquoise water. The whole village is a sun-trap, particularly in the evening and there's a couple of pubs, a small cafe/bar and a restaurant that specialises in greek food ( they do a tapas platter worth trying). The harbour is only used for recreation (a few small boats and what seems like a lot of skull rowing), so it's not a busy harbour. This is a great little spot for people who like to watch the world (water and village) go by and if you have a dog, you can sit on the harbour wall, chuck a ball in the water for the dog and have a pint in the sun. Bliss.
PS: The photo already on the site doesn't do the spot justice - I don't think I've ever been there and it hasn't been a few degrees warmer and brighter than where I've come from!Related to:
