This thriving and picturesque town is situated on the Owenabue River. Carrigaline is a satellite town of Cork City, but it is, in it's own right, both a bustling commercial centre and an attractive location. It is surrounded by the stunning countryside of a typical County Cork river valley.

The town forms the entrance to Crosshaven with its splendid water sports facilities including fishing and sailing of every description from dinghy to ocean going racing yachts.

The population of Carrigaline is nearly 7,000, with a further 250,000 people within a half hour drive of the town. It is ideally situated for the Port of Cork (15 mins) and Cork Airport(10 mins).

There is a vibrant social scene with excellent restaurants and pubs, catering to all tastes. The town is also home to Carrigaline Pottery, part of the Stephen Pearse company, where the most beautiful traditional and contemporary work is produced for the home and export markets, which can also be purchased in the factory shop.

Carrigaline has developed successfully over the last decade with significant commercial investment bringing jobs and prosperity, but augmented with controlled planning achieving an important balance between development and protection of the environment.

There is a well managed local infrastructure with excellent road links, health care and education. There is an excellent source of highly educated and skilled employees at the nearby educational institutions of University College Cork and Cork Regional Technical College.
