Ballycotton enjoys the proximity of Midleton, Cloyne, Castlemartyr, Garryvoe and Shanagarry but is a place apart. A rocky spur thrusting out into the sea, its cosy harbour side contrasts with its wild Atlantic cliff side, giving variety in scenery and climate.
Ballycotton has pure air, clean sea-water, incomparably beautiful views and the tranquility of being at the end-of-the-line.
And there is lots to do. Simply stand and gaze, or laze around soaking up the sea's powerful energy. Sit in the pub and hear the lore of the Lighthouse and the Lifeboat, mingle with the fishermen as they spin their tales of the deep sea or swim in one of the many local beaches. There's also the famous Ballycotton cliff walk with its glorious sea views or maybe you'd prefer a round of pitch and putt on Ballycotton's own 18 hole course overlooking the sea.
And of course, deep sea angling. Ballycotton has a thriving deep sea angling industry where productive angling marks can be reached in 20-30 minutes from its non-tidal harbour.
