Goleen

Goleen is a small rural village in Co Cork. It is located towards the south-western end of the Mizen Peninsula in West Cork. Farming and construction work are the main occupations of local people, with tourism also a factor given the large number of holiday homes in the region. The village has four pubs, four shops and a petrol station, as well as two churches – a large Catholic Church and a smaller Church of Ireland church. Mizen Head, at the southern tip of the Mizen peninsula, about five miles from the village, is often claimed to be the most southerly point on the island of Ireland, but is in fact the country's most southwesterly point. There is a community pitch in the town, as well as a sports hall which features a table tennis club. Bus Éireann runs the 273 bus service from Cork City to Goleen. The bus runs daily.
