HALFWAY, COUNTY CORK

The small, friendly village of Halfway got its name from being situated approximately half-way between Cork City and Bandon.

The village is situated close to Ballinhassig, on the L2231, and is just off the N71.

The Ramble Inn Bar and Lounge host an annual Halfway Vintage Rally, which is an annual meeting of vintage car owners and lovers. The club meets for this annual event every September, and is based over a weekend. A parade of vintage vehicles is usually conducted through the village, and on the Sunday, a drive is completed, where members drive to a pre-designated location, have lunch and return to the Ramble Inn for celebrations. There are lots of lovely walks to enjoy in the surrounding area. Additional "must sees" nearby would include: Kinsale Chocolate Boutique, Desmond Castle, Kinsale Crystal, Nine Market Street, or Curraheen Greyhound Park.

Cork City can also be explored in just under 10 km with a web of winding historic streets, set with plenty of boutiques, cafes and cosy local inns showcasing live music. With lots of local history nearby, Wellsprings House provides a wonderful base, brimming with character, perfect for your Southern Ireland break.
