Other interesting places to visit include Cape Clear Island, Bantry House, Glengariff, Garnish Island and the Beara Peninsula. The nearest towns are Schull (7 miles), Durrus (8 miles) and Bantry (15 miles). Cork city is 68 miles away.

The Sheep's Head Peninsula (Irish winners of the "European Destination of Excellence" (EDEN) competition in 2009) is located across the bay and offers a long distance walking route including the Sheep's Head Way, which traverses a number of Special Protection Areas, which are preserved for birdlife.

It also has a wealth of wildlife habitats many of which are protected as Special Areas of Conservation, and offers visitors loop walks, coastal, hill top, cliff side and river walks, angling, cycling, local food produce and much more.

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

West Cork (Irish: Iarthar Chorcaí) in South-West Ireland, lies in Ireland's largest county, County Cork.
Road signs may be found around Cork City and elsewhere directing traffic for "The West", or "West Cork". It is famous for the rugged beauty of its peninsulas, such as the remote Beara, Sheep's Head and Mizen Head Peninsulas which attract many walkers and cycling visitors.
The magnificent scenery and leisurely pace of life makes West Cork one of the finest places to holiday or live in Ireland. Some of the colourful and interesting towns nearby include Bantry, Dunmanway and Skibbereen.

Toormore

The Mizen Head peninsula divides into two headlands, Mizen Head itself, where you can visit the Mizen Vision Centre. The other headland, called Three Castle Head, has magnificent castle ruins overlooking a lagoon - these are on private land and can be accessed on foot by the more adventurous. Other interesting places to visit include the Sheep's Head; Cape Clear Island, Bantry House; Glengariff; Garnish Island and the Beara Peninsula. Both of the neighbouring peninsulas, the Sheep's Head and the Beara, have notable waymarked walks for hikers.

Activities available nearby include: Sailing (junior courses in Schull and Crookhaven), Golf—in Skibbereen, Bandon, Schull, and Bantry Park, Hiking/Biking Trails, Horseback riding, and Scuba Diving.

There are some quality restaurants locally—the Altar in Toormore, Blair's Cove House and The Heron's Cove. Schull and Bantry also have several noteworthy restaurants.

Noteworthy events happening locally this year include;

Schull - Fastnet Short Film Festival May 24 - 27th

Bantry - West Cork Chamber Music Festival June 27 - July 5th
West Cork Literary Festival July 8 - 14th
