NOHOVAL, a parish, in the barony of KINNALEA, County Cork and province of MUNSTER, and is situated on the southern coast. At Nohoval Cove are some extensive slate quarries. Very clear and beautiful crystals of quartz are scattered among the soil in most parts of the parish. The Cove is a romantic retreat, at the termination of a deep winding glen, in which many thousands of young tree have been planted, which, if they thrive, will form a great ornament to this barren spot: the entrance to the Cove is marked by three pyramidal rocks of considerable height. In calm weather, coal, culm, and limestone may be landed here, but in the winter scarcely a vessel ever ventures into so dangerous a place. On arrival to Nohoval Cove you drive down a very narrow road with thick vegetation on either side which eventually opens up to the waves of the Atlantic ocean gently lapping the shoreline.
The best route to view is straight up the hill by foot as there are two spectacular viewpoints to be found. These wind-whipped view points give a mesmerizing and unforgettable view of the south coast of Ireland. The first view point gives you a bird’s eye view of the entire cove from left to right. To the left is the true secret of Nohoval Cove – the hidden bay – completely inaccessible by foot. If your brave enough then you can keep climbing to the second view point where this painting is taken from. This little corner of Ireland is a hidden gem; remote and rocky it’s a true example of Ireland’s inherent beauty. Nohoval Cove gives a sense of escapism that You don’t find any where else in Ireland.
