The County Cork region


Known as the “capital of West Cork”, Skibbereen is a thriving market town, filled with shops, restaurants and pubs. The West Cork Arts Centre is based here, along with many social organisations and educational institutions. The Skibbereen Heritage Centre includes The Great Famine Commemoration Exhibition and The Lough Hyne Interpretive Centre.


The busy port of Baltimore is home to festivals throughout the year celebrating local history, seafood & produce, music, water sports and port life. There are several water sport activity centres. The town is a gourmet's paradise with several acclaimed restaurants.

Sherkin Island

Sherkin Island, a ten minute ferry ride from Baltimore, is home to a 15th Century Franciscan Friary, and one of the ruined O'Driscoll Castles, Dun-na-Long. Visitors also come to the island for its sandy beaches and crafts shops.

Cape Clear Island

Cape Clear Island, is Ireland's southernmost inhabited island with megalithic standing stones, a 5000 year-old passage grave, a 12th century church ruin, and a 14th century O'Driscoll castle cannonaded in the early 1600?s suggest times past. The island is known for its Bird Observatory and is a good spot for watching out for whales, dolphins, leatherback turtles, sun fish and shark. The island holds an Annual Storytelling Festival, but unofficial sessions break out regularly in the local pubs. Cape Clear is part of the Gaeltacht, one of several areas in Ireland where Irish is the official language, though these days everyone speaks both Irish and English.

Lough Hyne

A salt water lake, Lough Hyne (or Ine) contains rare sea life and is Ireland's only Marine Wildlife Reserve. The nearby woods are popular amongst walkers for the spectacular view from the top of Knockomagh Hill.


Castletownshend – The Townshend family still inhabit the castle that this town has grown around. The historic St. Baharrane's Church, which boasts two Harry Clark stained glass windows, holds a series of classical music concerts each summer. The town's most famous daughter, Edith Somerville (1858-1949), and her cousin Violet Martin collaborated on numerous novels and short stories which were published under the names “Somerville and Ross,” including “The Real Charlotte” and “Some Experiences of an Irish R.M.” Visits to her home and gardens can be arranged by appointment.


Skibbereen, known as the Capital of West Cork Ireland, is one of Ireland's oldest market towns. The town is still a favourite shopping spot with weekly markets, craft shops, art galleries and a supermarket known for its selection of quality baked goods and local meats and produce. Skibbereen is also home to many bars and restaurants, the West Cork Arts Centre and the Skibbereen Sports Centre.

We are set on the remarkably unspoilt peninsula of Gokane Point with breathtaking views of Baltimore Pennisula, Lough Hyne and the Kedge Rocks, Trag Retreat really is the idyllic get away. It is the perfect base from which to explore West Cork, South Ireland, which is, renounced the world over for its stunning scenery and unique charm. The region boasts beautiful beaches, a wild and rugged landscape and traditional market towns and fishing villages, which have entirely escaped the commercialism associated with other tourist regions. Its charm has in fact attracted many settlers which adds a cosmopolitan dimension to the region. If you love your food West Cork really is the place for you with an eatery to satisfy everyone's taste and budget from small gourmet healthfood cafes to world class restaurants.
