Shanagarry (Irish: An Seangharraí, meaning "the old garden") is a village in east County Cork in Ireland. The village is located on Ireland's south coast, approximately 35 kilometres east of Cork, and is known for the Ballymaloe Cookery School, in the home and gardens of celebrity chef Darina Allen. Also resident here is Darina's daughter-in-law Rachel Allen, another well known chef. The castle given to William Penn before he settled in Pennsylvania and started his Holy Experiment is also situated here approximately 2 miles from the house in which he was born. Also to be found in Shanagarry is the historic Old Road, an ancient Irish causeway and home to the original residents of the village. This is also the home village of the Russell Rovers hurling and football teams. The teams are made up of people from Shanagarry, Ballycotton and Churchtown South.
About 2 km from Shanagarry, just off the road to Ballycotton, lies Ballynamona beach. The surrounding land is a sanctuary for wildlife and is home to numerous herons, as well as oystercatchers and whitethroats. The beach offers good views of Ballycotton Bay.
