The Munster Blackwater is a famous salmon river that rises in the mountains of County Kerry and flows east through Cork and Waterford before turning southwards to enter the sea near Youghal. Downstream from Mallow the banks are lined with country houses and their wooded demesnes, and at times the river appears to pass directly from one estate to the next. Salterbridge, which has been jokingly described as in the ‘Regency Picturesque’ style, is the last country house before the town of Cappoquin, where the river meets the incoming tide and turns towards the sea.
