Inspiring gateway to West Cork

Welcome to inspirational Innishannon

Bóthairín an Átha

The gateway to West Cork and on the upper reaches of Kinsale harbour  Innishannon has an intriguing story to tell. 

The Horse and Rider sculpture at the eastern entrance of the village is the first chapter of this story that is continued on plaques throughout the village. 

Enjoy a visit to the secluded Huguenot graveyard, view the ancient Lawn Wall designed by Thomas Adderly who also designed the streets of  Dublin  and London. Read the plaque on the ancestral home of Mrs George Bernard Shaw and Jeremy Irons. Walk the riverside Bleach Walk which gets it’s name from the linen bleaching of earlier days.   Our history plaque  story  which dates back to the sixth century  concludes  at the  western end  of the village at  the restored forge and sculpture of Billy the Blacksmith. 

Take time to have a walk around adjacent Dromeen Wood  where you  may catch a fleeting glimpse of a red squirrel and children will  enjoy the Fairy Walk.  This is just a taste of the delights of Innishannon on the threshold of West Cork.
