Adrigole

Adrigole, is a village situated on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, in Ireland. It is centred on the junction of the R572 and R574 regional roads. It has a sparsely distributed population of about 450 people.Adrigole is a scattered village strung approximately 9 km along the north-western shore of Bantry Bay on the scenic south coast of the Beara Peninsula. Looming over it is Hungry Hill (687m, 2,253 ft) with two rock-girt lakes which feed a cascade. Hungry Hill is the highest of the Caha range which forms the spine of the peninsula, and gave its name to Daphne du Maurier's novel about the local copper-mining barons of the 19th century. There is also Adrigole Mountain and the Healy Pass (334m) nearby.Amenities and economyThe main industries in the area are fishing, farming, and tourism. The village has a shop known locally as "Peg's Shop" - which also offers limited postal services. There are also four pubs and a Catholic parish church. The area is served by two national schools, one at the junction of the Healy Pass Road R572 and the main Glengarriff - Castletownbere road R574, and the other further to the north east at Trafrask.Adrigole's proximity to the town of Castletownbere (approx. 10 miles) makes other services such as banking accessible. However, the village lacks health care services, is some distance from the nearest major hospital, and has poor road and telecommunications infrastructure in some areas. The road network has recently been improved, as a local bridge notorious for its winding bend was straightened and the road has been relaid in this area also as part of a strategy for improvement of the main Castletownbere road network.
