On 15th January 2009 a fin whale beached on the strand in Burren, Kilbrittain Co Cork, Ireland. It was an enormous animal. The skeleton was put on display in a permanent position in the local village and is an amazing sight. There is a video with sound of the story of the whale. Free amenity. There is a picnic area with tables and a beautiful woodland walk with a historic castle in the background.
