The Blue Pool is a tidal harbour hidden in the middle of Glengarriff. Pedestrian access to the harbour is beside Quills, in the centre of the village. The pool is formed where the river meets the sea, a wonderful rocky inlet surrounded by lush vegetation. Ferry trips to Garinish Island run from the picturesque Blue Pool and there are a number of beautiful walks through the woods with views of the harbour that are well worth exploring.
