Lee Valley Irelands Next Adventure Destination

We have been blown away by the beauty and location of the Lee Valley and the Inniscarra Lake. We think the potential is limitless in the area and we hope to set up a new adventure destination that will be know throughout the country. A hidden gem that is ripe to be explored but also has some well established activities already on the door step or very nearby. In the meantime we would like to make this a resource for visitors to the area. Have a look below at some of the great offerings already in the area. 

Other exciting things to do in the area?

  • Gougane Barra in the rain is ‘a must,’ to see the many waterfalls that flow from the top of the mountains into this lake. See J.J. 

  • Go fishing in Lough Allua and the reservoirs of Carrigadrohid and Inniscarra for great coarse fishing especially pike and bream.

  • Cycle the Lee Valley from Cork to Gougane Barra on a marked cycle route.

  •  Horse riding at Lee Valley Equestrian Centre

  • Visit the Market town of Macroom,especially on Tuesday (situated half way between Cork and Killarney) and see Macroom Castle once owned by Sir William Penn founder of the State of Pennsylvania!

  • Make toy soldiers in the Prince August Toy Soldier Factory in Killnamartra, a great day out. Prince August is Ireland’s only Toy Soldier Factory, and has an impressive display of pewter pieces which include, toy soldiers, chess sets, Irish Historical miniatures and Lord of the Rings figurines.

  • Why not organise a one to one, private painting workshops minimum 3 children/adults per working class.

  • Do a day trip to Blarney Castle, near Cork city and kiss the Blarney stone.

  • Walkabout in Cork city and visit St. Finbarr’s Cathedral, The Glucksman Gallery in UCC, ring the bells in Shandon, Art in the Crawford Gallery,or a walking trip of Cobh and a trip to the Titanic exhibition, all in a days trip from Gougane.

  • Go waterskiing in Carrigadrohid, kayak in the city, birdwatch in the Gearagh, sail in the harbour, go bowling in the city etc.

  • Sample some of the many speciality foods this valley has to offer in great locations like the English Market and many great restaurants and cafés- we love Cafe Idaho in Cork, out the back door of Brown Thomas, best coffee and chocolate cake in the city. Say hi to Mairead and Richard who will look after you very well.
