Description

Why Gort na Cuile?Nestling cosily in a sheltered corner of the coast, this elevated southern facing site presents a panoramic view of dramatic scenery with stunning and ever changing views of the sea. There is easy access to the adjoining seashore leading on to an expansive shingle beach where the waves continually roll in over pebbles leaving behind shells, rock pools and food for the many varied flocks of birdlife that frequent the area. There is a plentiful supply of crab and lobster in the locality with sea fishing; edible seafood such as carrigeen moss and dulce are in good supply and there for the taking. Most of all, one can enjoy the peace and quiet, the sunlight rippling on the water, the stunningly beautiful sunsets and sometimes the aurora borealis while the caves at Portronan are well worth exploring for their natural art. The above are just some of the reasons to holiday in Gort na Cuile
