Idyllic Courtmacsherry, A jewel of West Cork – heading

Courtmacsherry is a charming seaside village just 5 minutes off the R600 Kinsale – Clonakilty coast road. Quite unspoiled, it has been a resort for more than a century.

Gaily painted houses and fine Georgian villas face the calm inlet of Courtmacsherry bay. Fishing boats bob on the channel a stone’s throw from the front gardens. Framed between water and the woods of the Earl of Shannon estate behind, the village is one of the prettiest in West Cork.
