Drimoleague, from the Irish meaning “ridge of two stones”, is a village in West Cork.
The village was founded around 1851 after Drimoleague railway station was built on the Cork, Bandon and South Coast Railway line, which later became part of the Great Southern Railway.
Drimoleague is the starting point for St. Finbar’s Pilgrim Path, which ends about 35-kilometers away in Gougane Barra. This is one of the five Pilgrim Paths of Ireland.
To the north of Drimoleague is the ancient stronghold of Castledonovan, this was the seat of the O’Donovan clan for a period during the 16th century.
