Gougane Barra

Jean & I went for a ramble last week. Jean was driving as usual so that I could enjoy the scenery when I wasn’t dozing off. We headed west towards Macroom, on to Inchigeelagh and then to Gougane Barra where our first port of call was Cronin’s Bar and Cafe. I had a lovely scone with my tea and Jean indulged in a cappuccino with a slice of cheesecake. There was ample parking at the accessible front door but no designated spaces, but there was no wheelchair accessible toilet in evidence. We rambled over to St Finbarr’s Oratory Image

 which has accessible paths but there are steps to the main entrance. Construction of a ramp is well underway at the side of the chapel, the completion of which I await with anticipation. There are wheelchair accessible public toilets Image a short distance from the oratory. There was a group of vintage motor cyclists at Cronins while we were there and 1 of the motor bikes was first registered in 1925 and had been driven from Downpatrick. 

We travelled on west through Ceim an Iadh over towards Ballylickey with all the associated beautiful scenery of West Cork. We took our time driving back through Bantry, Dunmanway and Bandon finishing up back in Cork where we went to Milanos for a late lunch/early dinner. Milanos will be the subject of a separate post.
