Newmarket is a town in Co Cork. Historically known as Aghatrasna, it is located in the north west of the county close to the border with Kerry and Limerick, with the River Blackwater flowing nearby. Situated on a glen surrounded by the foothills of the Mulmuaghreirk Mountains, Newmarket also has a number of interesting pre-historic sites around it – a cairn, gallauns (boundary stones) and forts. Just outside the town is the beautiful Island Wood, home of the Twelve Apostles Tree – it has twelve smaller trunks growing from out of its main trunk. This secluded wooded area, with the River Dalua, full of salmon and trout, flowing beautifully through it, is a popular place for visitors to the area. Local amenities in the town include the James O'Keefe Institute, a thriving centre for the local community, as well as several B&Bs, restaurants, shops and pubs.
