Read about Glenbrook below
Glenbrook is a village between Passage West and Monkstown in County Cork, Ireland.
Monkstown, Glenbrook and Passage West are three closely-knit villages side by side along the harbour R610 route. Monkstown is well known for its excellent 18-hole Golf Course, deep-sea fishing, sailing club, restaurants and pubs. The Cross River Ferry at Glenbrook conveniently links the Owenabue Valley with East Cork, Fota Island & Cobh which has magnificent scenery and heritage centres.
Glenbrook was originally a seaside resort with buildings like the Glenbrook Turkish Bath-house and a beach in front of the houses. The turkish bath-house closed and George IV took all razed the building to repair buildings in the nearby Cork.
Travelling on to the old maritime town of Passage West, the visitor will sense through exploration the importance this town assumed in times past. It is from here that Captain Roberts set out and crossed the Atlantic in the first passenger steamship, 'The Sirius'. Following along the path of the old railway line, a scenic walk affords the visitor excellent views of the inner harbour.
