Glengarriff Nature Reserve

from Walking in Ireland


If you have time for an excursion after your return to Glengarriff, take the Blue Pool Ferry to nearby Garinish Island or Ilnacullin with its 37 acres of Italian and exotic gardens that were planted in the early 20th Century. The island also has a Martello tower fort that was built in 1805. 

Note: Garinish Island shouldn't confused with Garnish Island in County Kerry, which--though near--is an altogether different place. To make matters even more confusing, Garinish is often misspelled "Garnish," which is why some locals prefer to call it "Ilnacullin" (the Gaelic name for "island of holly").
