Eyeries is a village and townland in west Cork. It is situated on the Beara Peninsula, overlooking Coulagh Bay and the mouth of the Kenmare River in the south-west. It lies at the base of Maulin, which, at 2,044 feet (623m), is the highest peak in the Slieve Miskish mountain range that forms part of the backbone of the peninsula. Nearby is the Ballycrovane Ogham stone, the tallest known, standing 17.5 feet (5.3 m) high and bearing the inscription 'MAQI DECCEDDAS AVI TURANIAS' which translates as "Mac Deich Uí Turainn" or "son of Deich the descendant of Turainn". There is a church in the town called St Kentigern's, as well as a selection of shops and pubs and a national school.
