Come to Glengariff! Come!

By Gerald Griffin (1803–1840)

COME to Glengariff! come!

Close by the sea,

Ours is a happy home,

Peaceful and free.

There, there, far away,

Happy by our sunny bay,

We live from day to day,

Blithe as the bee.

For ours is a sunny home,

Joyous and free;

Come to Glengariff! come!

Close by the sea.
