Durrus is a village located at the head of Dunmanus Bay on what is called the Friendly Cove, on one of the most unspoilt coasts in Ireland, in West Cork, six miles from Bantry in County Cork. The village is the gateway to the Sheep's Head and Mizen Head peninsulas, a haven for walkers, hikers and cyclists, showcasing some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery that Ireland has to offer. Durrus has recently been announced as a key staging post on the new Wild Atlantic Way driving route which will help tourists to explore the Irish coastline from the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork. There are a number of public gardens established in the area, including Cois Abhann and Kilvarock. Durrus also benefits from a good selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes offering excellent food and traditional music through the year. Bantry is just a 20 minute drive away, and is a town of sweeping sea views and varied colourful buildings. It is home to a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants ideal for dining out or for experiencing local Irish music and culture. Bantry House is well worth a visit, sitting in an elevated position above the town and being home to a rich collection of tapestries, furniture and art, while there are also beautiful gardens to explore, which have been restored and are open to the public.
