Adrigole’s name derives from the Irish Eadargoil, “between two inlets”.
Along the rugged coastline of Adrigole Harbour, Seals can often be seen from the shoreline.
O’Sullivan’s mile is a coastal walk named after 5 O’Sullivan brothers who all died on the same U.S. Navy ship in World War II.
The ancestors of the brothers came from Adrigole, with their tragic story being the basis for the film Saving Private Ryan.
Looming over Adrigole is Hungry Hill, the highest of the Caha Mountain range.
Hungry Hill gave its name to British author, Daphne du Maurier’s famous novel about the local copper-mining barons of the 19th century.
