Glandore, Co. Cork

Glandore (Irish: Cuan Dor, meaning harbour of the oaks) is a charming coastal village about an hour's drive west of Cork city.

Due to its location, Glandore was one of the earlier settlements in the area. In 1215, the Normans built two castles here. The village has several pubs, serving beer, food, and often there is traditional music.

The village yacht club's unofficial headquarters is in the Glandore Inn, sailing is one of the main attractions to Glandore and its neighbour Union Hall in the summer. There are two islands in the bay, one named Adam, the other Eve. Sailing instructions for entering the bay used to be 'Avoid Adam and hug Eve'.
