Situated right by the Wild Atlantic Way, Baltimore is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful southwest corner of Ireland and its spectacular coastline. All over West Cork you will find enchanting villages, ruined castles, subtropical gardens and other delights. Ireland’s first marine nature reserve, the magical sea lake Lough Hyne, is just up the road, while westward lies Mizen Head, the land’s end of Ireland.
Alternatively, take the ferry from Baltimore pier to one of the three main members of ‘Carbery’s Hundred Isles’ — Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir — each with its own special attractions. For further information click here.
