Macroom is a small market town lying
in a valley on the River Sullane, a tributary of the River Lee,
between Cork and Killarney. Tourist attractions include a colourful
town centre, an 18-hole golf course and scenic surroundings.
There are many holy wells, churches and other sites in the area
associated with old visionaries and healers. Just south of the
town is the Gearagh, a combination of wetland and woods which
is of great natural importance due to its rich and rare diversity
of wildlife. The Gateway is all that remains of Macroom Castle.
