On our way to Cork, our next destination, we stopped in the quaint town of Glengarriff to take a boat ride on Glengarriff Harbour.
Glengarrif’s claim to fame is that Maureen O’Hara, who was a famous actress in Hollywood, especially known for the many movies she made with John Wayne, now lives in her native land along the banks of Glengarriff Harbour.
It is also known for Garinish Island that is a stop off on the boat ride. Garinish Island has a beautiful Italianate Garden with exotic plants. There is an entrance fee.
Sea lions seem to love photo ops.
