Barley Lake is a glacial corrie lake just outside Glengarriff. It is well worth a visit and can be accessed by road or as an exhilarating cycle or walk! A very steep and winding road brings you up above all but the highest parts of the mountains where you can park your car and head across the countryside till you get to the lake. It is a very impressive sight to behold.

Directions – Take the Kenmare road out of Glengarriff Village and the turn for Barley Lake is signposted (left) just about a mile up the road.
