The weather smiled on us again and the village was buzzing with more visitors than ever. As usual there was a packed programme of all manner of events to entertain the whole family.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
A proud day for Beara and Cork County as our own Patrick Gerard Murphy was elected as Lord Mayor on 22nd June. Originally from Ahabrock, Eyeries but now based in Bantry, Patrick as been a Fianna Fail Councillor for 20 years.
On behalf of all the local community we would like to wish him all the very best in his year as Cork County Lord Mayor.
Mary Maddison's famous Beara Yarn Spinners storytelling sessions at The Rambling House in Eyeries are now on the first Monday evening of each month from 7pm-10pm.
Storytelling is an important part of Irish culture and Mary is keeping the tradition alive here in Eyeries. Come and listen to traditional and not-so traditional tales and perhaps some music and songs for good measure. Maybe you have some stories of your own that you would like to tell!
Free admission - please ring Mary on 027 74319 for details.
Friday 18th May saw the opening of Eyeries Motor Home Park located near the centre of the village.
It will be open throughout the season until the end of October and all holiday weekends.
Enjoy a meal or just a drink at this new meeting and eating place. Cindy's Gems Café has cosy sofas, outdoor seating and toys for children, making this a great family venue in which to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner.
9am - 7pm Monday - Saturday
10am - 6pm Sunday
We do not see snow very often in Eyeries because of its coastal location close to the warm Gulf Stream current in the Atlantic Ocean.
On 2nd March 2018, the heaviest snow for a very long time (perhaps since 1947) covered the village and surrounding countryside. Fluffy, snowy bliss was enjoyed by all for a perfect short spell whilst much of the rest of the country endured the unpleasant side of heavy snow for much longer.
