This is a popular place for sea-lovers, with a hotel and pubs conveniently located along the water. It is a good place for yachting.
What to See and Do
We came during the Glandore Classic Regatta and observed tons of kids having a hoot in the water. Visit Drombeg Stone Circle on the outskirts of town. The Glandore Inn has set dancing classes Mondays and Thursdays, and a disco on Saturdays.
Where to Eat and Drink
The Marine serves food and is also an accommodation. Yassou Café is right along the waterfront. Haye's Bar appeared a fun, local place for a drink.
Where to Sleep
Kilfinnan Farm is 3km from town. The Meadow Camping is a place to pitch your tent. The Marine Hotel looks like a fine spot for a night's rest. The Glandore Inn is another option. Glandore Cottages self-catering accommodations (www.glandorecottages.com).
