I stumbled across this lovely little place while there was a fund raiser in progress for Ukraine. I believe this place exemplifies the best of small towns.

Very well maintained Grotto to Our Lady and an informative plaque explaining the unusual events which took place here. Parking available close to the site.

Lovely village spoiled by cars . They’d park on your head if they could even though the ‘car park’ is located a short distance away. New plaza is neither a footpath or car park and the confusion will lead to an accident. Such a shame that the village can’t reach its potential with its location on the Wild Atlantic Way. I’ve no doubt the businesses would increase their turn over ten fold if the plaza was used for the purpose it was designed for.

The grotto is in a lovely, peaceful setting despite being on the side of the road. There are places to park very close to it and seats and benches available. The statue of Our Lady is supposed to move as she breathes. We didn't see it on this occasion but we did enjoy sitting quietly and looking at the surrounding setting.

Grotto located on the outskirts of Ballinspittle that drew thousands of people to this quiet community in the eighties when locals claimed to have seen the grotto statue move. Statue and Grotto well maintained to this day .

We visited here to try and find any records of my family ,after a cuppa in a small cafe we were directed to a church yard where we found a grave of a Martin, we were also informed there was a Martin family in nearby Garretstown but we did not have time to track down , certainly these small places offer a better experience of the real Ireland.

Ballinspittle is a very very friendly and colourfull village very close to the Atlantic Way. When you want to escape from the touristic Kinsale and enjoy the Irish countryside take the car and drive to Ballinspittle and drink a cupper or enjoy a lunch at Diva Booutique.

When you drive 3 kilometres further, you will be welcomed and overwhelmed by the waves on Garretstown Beach. Amazing!

Located on the WAW is this small village, that under normal circumstances would not be a stand alone attraction. However in 1985 it is said/claimed that some locals saw the statue of Mary move, as you would imagine it became quite popular internationally. She did not move for us. However worth a visit the all the same.
