Lauragh

Location

Kerry Map

OS Ref: V 776 582

Last Visited: 2010


Lauragh boasts a church, a Post Office, two pubs (one for the leprechauns and one for the big people), a Garda Station and a school.

On first sight, however, it does not appear to have any houses (or not many at least).

In fact, most of this scattered community is tucked away up the narrow roads leading to Glanmore Lake, and canʼt be seen from the main roads.

Lauragh is the start (or end depending which way you look at it) of the fabulous Healy Pass road between here and Adrgole.

Kilmakillogue Quay

Kilmakillogue Quay is a pleasant, peaceful spot, mainly used by mussel fishing boats and leisure craft. The bay is filled with lines of blue buoys, from which hang the long ropes on which the mussels grow, and the boats can often be seen working up and down the lines.

Overlooking the quay is Teddy OʼSullivanʼs bar, a completely unspoiled traditional Irish pub. That is to say, a bit rough and ready but clean and welcoming. They do a very fine line in fresh salmon sandwiches, and a pint of Murphyʼs that almost tastes like Irish stout used to taste back in the seventies.

Despite being very close to a modern bungalow, the setting of the Shronebirrane Stone Circle is magnificent, in the fertile valley bottom surrounded on three sides by mountains.

The fourth side faces down the valley and there appear to be some stones missing in that direction. Coincidence or not?

The limekiln in Lauragh is believed to have been built in the early 1800s by one Finin ‘Caoch’ O’Sullivan, a prosperous local merchant who also operated a tannery and owned two sailing boats.

He was a near relative of the last Mac Finin Dubh, owner of nearby Derreen.
