Allihies Copper Mine
Visit us in ALLIHIES on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork, Ireland and discover breath-taking landscape, a lively village and the captivating story of Europe’s most westerly copper mines! Allihies, the last village at the end of the beautiful Beara Peninsula, sits between an impressive rocky mountain range and the rugged Atlantic coast. The saying ‘a view around every corner’ certainly applies here. The panorama from Barnes Gap is unforgettable and, as you descend towards the village through the small fields, the Man Engine house at the Mountain Mine stands out in the grey mountain ahead.
