Adrigole is reputedly one of the longest villages in Ireland. Its name derives from the Irish Eadargoil, between two inlets. The area is rich in historical and archaeological sites, including many wedge graves and tombs dating from 2500 BC. Adrigole is dotted with stone circles, gallan and ogham stones, many of which are considered to be among the oldest and finest examples worldwide. The village is flanked by the Sugarloaf Mountain and the high peaks of the Caha Mountains to the east and by Hungry Hill to the west. The Mare's Tail waterfall, on the side of Hungry Hill is a magnificent sight when in full flow. Roancarrig Lighthouse stands proudly guarding Adrigole Harbour and the passage into Castletown Bere Harbour.
The rugged coastline boasts sandy inlets suitable for bathing. Wildlife abounds and seals can often be seen from the shoreline of Adrigole Harbour. O'Sullivan’s mile is a coastal walk named after 5 O'Sullivan brothers who all died on the same U.S. Navy ship in the 2nd World War and whose ancestors came from Adrigole.
The Famous Healy Pass linking Cork to Kerry provides spectacular panoramic views linking the two counties. Coffee shops, craft shops, accommodation, fishing, water sports, camping and hostel, pubs and a friendly local shop are all available in Adrigole.
