dc.descriptionCork's Blackrock Castle is located where the River Lee flows into Lough Mahon. James Fraser in his book from the mid-19th century titled 'Handbook for Travellers in Ireland' (Dublin, 1853) describes the area as follows: "The scenery of this part of our trip exhibits the charming effects produced from adorning, with plantations, even limited portions of rising ground. Here the whole area, from the city to Glanmire, on the one hand and to Blackrock Castle on the other, which is covered with villas, does not exceed 700 acres of which 400 are on the north, and 300 on the south side of the river. From Blackrock Castle to the Passage, the estuary, marked on the maps as Lough Mahon, spreads over the adjacent lowlands, forming, according to the unrestrained flow of the tide-water, various inlets and little bays. The small straggling seaport town of Passage, or Passage West (as it is marked on maps, to distinguish it from Passage East, in the county of Waterford), where heavily laden vessels bound for Cork, are occasionally relieved of part of their cargoes, is now, from the railway, a place of considerable resort. It contains a small church, R.C. Chapel, and Methodist Meeting house."en
