Ballingeary is a peaceful inland village in south-west Ireland. It enjoys a picturesque location in the Shehy Mountains, a low-lying range that forms the county border between Cork and Kerry, to the west. Just a few miles outside Ballingeary, a mountain area known as Gougane Barra is open as a forest park. A popular visitor attraction with an abundance of animal and plant life, the park is situated in a romantic glen overlooked by heather-clad cliffs. Here, the River Lee flows from its source to the beautiful Gougane Barra Lake where, according to tradition, Saint Finbarr founded a monastery in the 6th Century. Drivers may follow a signposted motor-route through the park's forested hills, while pedestrians have a choice of walks including a nature trail. Ballingeary, with its delightful lakeland scenery, is a good centre for all kinds of outdoor activities, from fishing, boating, walking and cycling to more challenging sports such as climbing and orienteering. The village hosts an agricultural and horticultural festival every year, with exhibitions of animals, arts and crafts, food and flowers ensuring a fun day out for the family. Visitors are also well placed to explore the surrounding wild countryside and the wider attractions of County Cork.
