” The village of Boherbue is situated on a hillock, 600ft above sea-level, on the main Cork – Tralee road, roughly 40 miles from Cork and 30 miles from Tralee. It is in the barony of Duhallow and its situation takes in sections of the townlands of Laharn, Gneeves and Derrynatubrid. It is situated in a very strategic position, often called “The Gateway to West Duhallow” or indeed “The Gateway to Sliabh Luachra” as the signpost in the square reveals.
The village of Boherbue is a thriving rural hamlet, neat and well kept. It has well stocked stores, hospitable hostelries, a reputable restaurant and all the other amenities essential to modern living. The pleasant , pastoral atmosphere of the place makes it very conductive to family life”.
