Cappoquin (from the Irish Ceapach Choinn, meaning "Choinn's tillage plot") is a quiet market town which lies beneath the southern slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains and at the head of the tidal Blackwater estuary.
Cappoquin is a renowned angling centre for both the game and coarse angler. In the centre of town you can wander through the 18th Century Cappoquin House and Gardens and enjoy the beautiful architecture, floral landscapes and views over the valley. Other historic houses to explore in the area are Salterbridge House and Gardens, Tourin House and Gardens and Dromana House and Gardens; all within a short drive of Cappoquin town centre. Other attractions in the area include Mount Melleray Abbey and the architecture of Dromana Bridge. Nearby, Camphire International Horse Trials take place annually in July.
