  Allihies - Cork - Ireland
Allihies – with two shops, a post office and four public houses – is typical of the type of self-contained Irish village that was once found throughout the country.
Indeed, Allihies (population: 650) has done well to survive, as it has suffered more than most villages: during the 1800s it was a thriving copper mining region, an activity that has long since declined.
Allihies resilience is probably due to its extraordinary scenery, located on the Ring of Beara and overlooking Ballydonegan Bay, a seaport from where the copper ore was once exported.
