The beautiful Lough Hyne viewed from the top of the Knockonagh Forest Walk.

This enchanting lough is Europe's largest sea-water lake and boasts an amazing array of unusual marine life. Despite numerous studies, scientists have still to unearth the mystery surrounding the fact that the lough is always some 3 degrees C warmer than the sea and contains marine life usually only found in the Mediterranean. It is only 4 km from Skibbereen. Visit the Lough Hyne Interpretative Centre at Skibbereen Heritage Centre which shows an audio visual in English, Irish, French or German, explaining the unique nature of this, Ireland's First Marine Nature Reserve.

Take your pick from the delightful choice of fishing villages. Fashionable Baltimore is the gateway to Sherkin Island and Cape Clear.

For the more energetic, Skibbereen offers great leisure facilities. There is a fine 18-hole golf course which is both forgiving, yet challenging (within 2km of Skibbereen).
