Glengarriff is a popular tourist stop between the towns of West Cork and Killarney. Before the motor car it was on the famous Prince of Wales route from Cork to Killarney which began by rail as far as Bantry. From there, four horse coaches followed the road via Glengarriff and Kenmare to Killarney.
