Ballycotton

2005_0618image0052.jpgBallycotton, is a picturesque cliff-side fishing village 8 miles from Castlemartyr on the Youghal to Cork Road, and just 30 minutes from Cork City. The village meanders along on a rocky headland overlooking Ballycotton Bay until you reach the end of the road at Ballycotton's beautiful fishing harbour with its views out over the rocks to the famous black lighthouse.

Ballycotton has been famous for many years as a deep-sea angling centre, and holds many Irish specimen fishing records (check your Guinness book of records! - you'll see). There is shore fishing from the rocks and coves and on the five miles of beautiful beach from Ballycotton to the blue flag beach at Garryvoe and on to Ballywilling all on Ballycotton Bay. For the adventurous, fishing boats (with skippers) can be hired to take you out and see if you can break a world record.

The coastal path to Ballytrasna(1.5KM.) and on to Ballyandreen(3 km.) is great for walkers, although not for young children, as its cliff side paths require some caution. This is an unspoiled area, rich with all kinds of wildlife was once frequented by the coast-guards keeping a watchful eye on smuggling etc.

In former years doctors of repute prescribed a week in Ballycotton for patients suffering from fatigue and to the present day the invigorating air and olde worlde charm are most relaxing.
