Courtmacsherry is a small coastal village 30 miles southwest of Cork City and the international airport. The village, with its sheltered harbour, has established itself as one of southwest Ireland’s premier sea angling and boat trip centres. Because of this, and its wide selection of local pubs, “Courtmac” is known locally as “A quiet drinking village with a fishing problem”.
It is also situated close to the beginning of both the Seven Heads Walk and the far longer Wild Atlantic Way that reaches all the way up the west coast to Donegal. Courtmac is home to the Courtmacsherry Offshore Lifeboat and the village has a number of other facilities such as a recently refurbished pier and pontoon for boats and visiting yachts, a promenade and tennis court. The village has also started up its own community shop, stocking all the necessities.
