About the neighbourhood
Collorus Point/Lauragh is a hilly peninsula with a sheltered harbour, on the north coast of the Beara Peninsula, close to the Kerry/Cork border, on the WILD ATLANTIC WAY. Derreen Gardens and woods, Glanmore and Cloonee Lakes, Gleninchiquin waterfall, Ring of Beara, the Healy Pass leading to Glengarriff, Castletownbere, Allihies and Dursey Island are all nearby. Beara is an extremely scenic area with pretty villages and stunning sea views around every corner. The area is ideal for walking, water sports, touring, golfing and fishing. You can step into the Beara Way (206 km walking trail) near the house. Boat trips organised from Kenmare. There are many archeological sites nearby. Lovely cafés and pub with food and music are available locally.
Getting around
