Goleen

'Goilin' (little inlet)

Travelling on westwards through the townlands of Kealfadda, Ballyrisode and Ballydevlin you arrive in Goleen.

This village was built during the nineteenth century at a crossroads where a cattle fair was regularly held. You will notice the extremely wide road winding through the village and all the houses were originally built as shops.

Falling away left of the village is the hidden harbour from which the village takes its name, ‘Goilin’ (little inlet) is easily recognisable once you venture down the lane. Although the harbour dries at low tide, giving great feeding for a variety of wildlife including fox and a pheasant, there is a deep-water quay at the entrance to accommodate fishing boats and yachts.
