St. Finbarr's Oratory

This is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit.  I got the opportunity, finally, while on holiday in West Cork last weekend.  It’s a really beautiful place.  There was a wedding taking place while I was there (it’s a very popular place for small intimate weddings), and, as there were photographs being taken, I didn’t venture onto the island.

There’s a hotel across the lake from the church as well as a pub/café and shop.  Fishing licenses can be purchased at the shop and there were a few people fishing down at the lake.  There are some lovely walks around the forest park so it’s a really nice place to while away a few hours.

  1. Hey Brian, thanks for the comment, and for the replies to my ‘images’ question the other day. That was my first time in Gougane Barra and I’d love to have gone on a walk around the place. Just a pity the weathr was so awful while we were there. Well worth the visit.
