Known by some as the Mines, a reference to the copper mines that provided employment for many a hundred years ago. People worked in very rough conditions, for very little money. A visit to the Mines Museum is a must for any visitor. Allihies also hosts the Michael O'Dwyer tin whistle festival each June, and has a famous horse race on August 15th each year

The town is at the entrance to the Beara Peninsula southern shoreline that follows Bantry Bay. It has a distinctly tropical flavour with many palm trees and Italian Gardens on Garnish Island. It has a superb golf course and several top quality hotels and places to stay. For many years it was the home of Irish film star Maureen O'Hara. Large ocean going cruise liners often call in, like Club Med 2 below left which called in during 2014
