| 10 Places to Stay

The friendly fishing village of Ballycotton offers such exhilarating scenery, far from the madding crowd, that County Cork residents have been moved to declare: "It's one of those places you want to keep secret." Only an hour from Cork Airport, Ballycotton stands on a rocky headland jutting into the Atlantic, where the visitor truly reaches the end of the road. From here, one can take invigorating walks along cliff paths in the fresh sea air, 200 feet above the water. The village and harbour are sheltered from the force of the sea by an island topped with a 19th Century lighthouse. The local lifeboat, meanwhile, has carried out many famous rescues. Ballycotton is a centre for deep-sea fishing, and boats with experienced captains are available for hire. This is also an ornithologist's paradise, with many rare species to be found at the village's bird sanctuary, as well as a centre for creative artists and craftspeople. Another attraction is the annual Ballycotton Road Race for runners. The area is known for its clean water and beaches, stretching round the wide sweep of Ballycotton Bay, where all kinds of watersports are undertaken. Golfers can choose from ten nearby courses, and horse- riding is popular too.
