Castletownshend is an unspoilt village set on a steep hill running all the way down to The Castle at the bottom, past the “Two Trees” in the middle of the road. The village has an air of days gone by with its old phone box, petrol pump and listed green water pumps. The village has much to offer with Mary Ann’s Bar & Restaurant just 2min walk from The Castle, serving award winning food all day throughout the year. Lil McCarthys pub at the top of the village is open for late drinks and hosts music throughout the summer months. The small village shop offers news papers, basics and the local gossip! In an area full of history, visit the Church to see Harry Clarke stained glass windows, check opening times for the Edith Somerville museum and gardens. Walk to the “Three fingers” or Knockdrum fort for amazing views of the Castlehaven area.

Skibbereen market town (farmers market on a Saturday) is just a 10 min drive away, with a selection of cafes, restaurants and bars. Visit the art gallery or the Heritage centre to learn all about the famine or to trace your family roots.
