TEELIN ~ Population approximately 250 Teileann ~ Meaning: Dish
Teelin is a beautiful little spot near the high cliffs of Sliabh Liag (Slieve league) and with views to the cliffs from the pier at Teelin. It has deep harbour and is well protected from the sea surrounding it by land masses either side of the inlet into the harbour area. The landmass to the left (as you look at it from the road leading to the pier) is called "The Whale" and you can easily see how it got this name from the photos below.
Teelin was once an important port and is one of the first places on the earliest maps of Ireland.
At the pier there is the remains of an old church and on the site there is a monument to the Teelin Monks, 5th Century monks who left from Teelin to travel to Iceland. From Teelin you can take a boat trip out to Sliabh Liag (Slieve League) and view the cliffs from the see nearly 2,000 below.
