Welcome to Ballincollig Tidy Towns
Where are we?
About 7 miles west of Cork City, in the beautiful Lee Valley, Ballincollig nestles on the south bank of the river, on the main route from Cork to Kerry.
Those of us who live here always refer to Ballincollig as “The Village”, an indication that, as a town, we have managed to retain our identity, even though we are almost a suburb of Cork City. The largest industries in Ballincollig are IT related, EMC and VMWare, but you can find a full range of industries, services and shops here. While not noted as a Tourist Town, Ballincollig has much to offer the visitor. You can explore the Regional Park, Ireland’s largest Industrial Heritage site, containing a skate park, pitches, a multi-user games area and a permanent orienteering course (http://www.corko.net/ballincollig_poc) in about 140 acres of mature woodland. You might also like to stroll on one of the Ballincollig Gunpowder Trails (http://www.corkcoco.ie/co/pdf/828779554.pdf). The nearby Inniscarra Reservoir is home to the National Rowing Centre (http://www.rowingireland.ie/national-rowing-centre-4/), the Inniscarra Sailing & Kayaking Club (http://corksailing.com/), the Cork Powerboat & Waterski Club (http://waterskiireland.com/) and offers excellent bream, rudd, bream-rudd hybrid angling, having hosted a number of international competitions (http://www.fishinginireland.info/coarse/southwest/inniscarra.htm)
