Allihies Ireland, let it “Cast a Spell” on you. A song by Pat Higgins which he recorded at shotgun studios Reentrisk, Beara Co. Cork.
This is the full length video of Pat’s song about Allihies Ireland made after the huge success of the popular short version. There are twice as many video clips on this version so watch it until the end and you might see your self. I can name about 80 people in the video, but there are many more.

As can be seen in the video Allihies is a fantastic place to come and stay. Plenty of options for accommodation and food. As well a huge range of activities from the easy going walk to extreme sports.
Heidi visits Allihies for a second time this year, a great visit with the kids and Sam with an evening stroll to Balydonegan beach followed by supper and a movie. Next day spent at Tranfeerla strand, canoeing, rock sculpture making and of course swimming. Finished off with a small bit of pony riding for the kids on Salvador.
Castletownbere Coastguard Shannon Helicopter (R115) tonight on the towns GAA pitch, a very interesting training session on how to help a helicopter crew to lower a stretcher and lift it (high line) whilst at the same time removing the spinning effect which would normally occur due to the down force of the helicopter. The crew arrived from Shannon and we set off a flare to help them coordinate themselves. They then landed and we had the pleasure of some chat and a visit aboard the helicopter. We then had a briefing and the team split into two groups to be able to try out the techniques explained to us. Great fun and an amazing amount of wind generated from the helicopter when it was close to the ground.
Many thanks to the crew from Shannon we had a blast…
