I have visited Glengarriff on two trips and will go there again.
Cork is an amazing city! It's small like a town but so interesting that you need a month to see everything. The broad streets in Shandon are charming, the houses of different colours are lovely, and there are lots of pubs where you can have fun with the Irish people. Cork City Jail (Gaol) is a recommended place to visit too. No doubt, Cork is my favourite city in Ireland.
I have just been able to determine that Dunmanway is the ancestral home of our family, with the head being Nathan Capron Davis. My mother who is deceased tried to determine this for years, but never succeeded. I certainly would plan on visiting the area to make her wish come true.
Allihies is a wonderful place to visit and to live. The drive from the capital is a little daunting! However, considering the the atmosphere and the wonderful time you'll have there, it is worth it. Just be careful of the old mineworkings - though most now are fenced off. A week is not long enough to spend there. More Americans should go there. All the best.
This is a great city -- small, so it is easy to explore on foot. I rang the Shandon Bells (nice thing to do -- hear your tune played out over the city!). The English Market is cool to wander in and buy lunch -- I ate it in the Peace Park across the way. I like the cafe in the Crawford Art Gallery too, but my best cup of coffee was in Cork Coffee Roasters on Bridge Street. It's excellent if made by the owners. The Bank of the Lee walk by the river takes you to the park or the university (the Glucksman Gallery there is cool). You have to bounce on the Shakey Bridge near the Park too!
I visited with my mom, sis, and uncle way back in 1979 and am finally getting to return with my husband and daughters this summer. I can't wait. Allihies/Ballydonegan is the the birthplace of my maternal grandmother, Anna Shea. I am so looking forward to showing my girls their heritage in such a beautiful place.
