Killeagh Village and Glenbower Woods

PDF Print E-mail

Killeagh is a village outside of Youghal, and is most memorable for the the large Thatched pub next to its imposing church..

A nunnery is said to have been founded here in the 7th century by St. Abban, near the spot now occupied by the parish church. 

Behind the thatched pub you'll gain access to the carpark for Glenbower Woods - a popular picnic venue. Glenbower is a deep wood which is one of the few remnants of the ancient forests. This romantic glen, which is thought to be equal in beauty to the celebrated Wicklow Dargle, commences above the town of Killeagh and winds upwards for some miles till it is lost in the mountains. Its precipitous sides are richly wooded, and the Dissour, which runs through it, in winter dashes with the fury of a mountain torrent, fully justifying the name of Glaunbour, or "the Deafening Valley."
