About the location

BALTIMORE, COUNTY CORK

Skibbereen 6 miles.

The harbour town of Baltimore is located in Western County Cork, 6 miles from Skibbereen. This is a popular venue for water sports including sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving, the latter due largely to the number and variety of shipwrecks in the bay as Baltimore was once attacked by Algerian Pirates; reminders of the incident still remain in the form of local pub names. Why not take in a spot of whale watching, booking one of the whale watching trips, operating from the pier or take the ferry across to Cape Clear, a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) island. You may even see dolphins at no extra cost! Take a stroll around the recently restored O'Driscoll Castle or head up towards the Baltimore Beacon - also known as Lot's Wife - one of the most notable landmarks in the area. Whether facing the wild Atlantic, or exploring the inlets and creeks of Reengaroga, Cape Clear, Sherkin and Carbery's Hundred Isles, Baltimore is a location not to be missed!It has a wonderful selection of pubs , restaurants and cafes, as does the market town of Skibbereen which is also within easy reach. A visit to the Skibbereen Heritage Centre is recommended for historians as it houses the Famine Exhibition and Lough Hyne visitors Centre.

Note: Adults only, no children.
