About the neighbourhood
Castletownbere is 10 mins drive away and is a major fishing port. The fishing fleets moor up in the harbour and bring ashore their catch of mainly white fish which you can buy fresh. The town has an good selection of shops including supermarkets, health foods, arts and crafts,a fine local butcher and pubs (such as MacCarthy's Bar as featured in, and on the front cover of the best-selling book of the same name by Pete MacCarthy). In addition,in the town square, you can buy German Crepes in summer months with a vast selection of fillings, cooked freshly while you wait, or you can relax in the variety of restaurants in the town and surrounding area, nearly all of which offer a mouth-watering selection of freshly caught and cooked local fish.
