Carrigaline is a bustling town that has retained all the charm, atmosphere and community spirit of the village it once was. Only seven or eight miles from the historic city of Cork, Carrigaline enjoys a picturesque location at the head of the Owenabue River and Estuary, and is surrounded by wonderful countryside and opportunities for outdoor sports. Its oldest habitable building is Ballea Castle, which stands on tall, forested cliffs overlooking the river at Ballea Bridge. The famous White Horse, a painting on the cliff face below the castle, is one of the town's best-loved landmarks, another being a much more recent artwork - the stainless steel heron sculpture at the main roundabout, placed there to mark the Millennium. Just a few miles outside Carrigaline, on a peninsula, lie Currabinny Woods, whose broad pathways through largely deciduous forests make for some tremendously scenic walks. A little closer to town, the historic St John's Holy Well is worth seeing. Carrigaline is an ideal base for exploring the countless attractions of county Cork, and it's only minutes away from a number of beaches where sailing, fishing and surfing are popular activities. Golfers may choose from a variety of championship courses in the locality.
