About Adrigole

Adrigole is the gateway to the Ring of Beara. The scenic mountain road between Adrigole and Lauragh is called the Healy Pass: cutting through the high Caha Mountains, it rises 334 metres above sea level and passes between two of the highest peaks of the Caha range. This is one of the finest mountain roads in Ireland and is named after Tim Healy, the first governor - General of the Irish Free state, who was born nearby Bantry. At Trafrask is a plaque commemorating the five Sullivan brothers who were killed when the US Navy ship on which they were stationed was torpedoed; brothers' grandparents came from the area.
