Review of The Gearagh

The Gearagh
Ranked #3 of 14 things to do in Macroom
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 March 2012

The flooded landscape of the Gearagh was brought about when the damn at Inniscarra was constructed and the resulting floodplain filled with water. The Gearagh is a very strange lunar-like place, it looks like something out of a Lord of The Rings movie. Photographers will love it, especially at sunset in the summer months, or dawns with mists clinging to the watery surface.

The stumps of trees peeking out of the dam water is nothing short of amazing, like from an apocalypse move!

Just 5 minutes outside of Macroom. This place has limited free parking. It is good for watching birds and taking in the local nature.

Pls visit this unusual place! I have never seen anything like this! Meadows or wetlands, they are called, I think. Before I knew the real name, I called it: " Lee Valley and the rotten oaks" :-) .... Stop for a while, park your car at the parking lot there and take a walk over to the other side..... it is really something! It could be a bit spooky to some people.... :-) I loved it!
