Rafeen Creek

Habitat & Species
During the winter months, many species of wildfowl and waders flock to this important feeding area, at the southern end of Cork Harbour, to avoid the harsh conditions of Northern Europe and Iceland.

Ringaskiddy was a small fishing village until 1969, when Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company, constructed a citric acid plant and the industrialisation of this area began. For panoramic views of Cork Harbour walk up the Lough Beg Road to the site of a Martello Tower on a hilltop above Ringaskiddy.
