Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Kilcrohane
With a truly wondrous coastline which has fantastic views of the sea and with lots of walking and trekking routes up the nearby hills, Kilcrohane is a haven for those who love the great outdoors and who want to get stuck in and see a natural and beautiful side to this part of Ireland on a cottage holiday. The highest hill of the area is called the Shadow of Seefin in the Sheep’s Head Peninsula and this is a fantastic walking route for those who enjoy hiking and those who prefer more relaxing strolls, as there are different paths to take. Once you reach the top and look over the incredible Dunmanus Bay below with the Caher Mountain in the distance, you will know that the climb was worth the wait.
Kilcrohane is filled with lots of fun attractions and plenty of things to do to make a self-catering break here great fun for all the family. It is a vibrant seaside destination, which booms in the summer, and with a couple of friendly pubs, a sophisticated wine bar and a number of restaurants and cafes, including the Sheep’s Head Café, there are plenty of options for a bite to eat and a drink to quench your thirst when the heat rises.
There are also lots of festivals throughout the year in the village for those who wish to get a real sense of community spirit, and these include the Kilcrohane Carnival, held in July each year, attracting tourists from Ireland and even Europe, to partake in lively events with music and dancing. Another festival worth going to is the ‘Craic on the Coast’ which is a traditional music festival, taking place every year during the Easter weekend.
Swimmers will enjoy dipping in the many coves that can be found along the coast, and the Kilcrohane pier is a popular and great place for a swim in the clear waters of the southern Irish coast. If you really love the water then taking a ferry or a boat to Carbery Island whilst on a self-catering holiday is a great way to see this little hidden gem, and wildlife lovers will adore spotting the multitudes of seals that can be seen on the rocks and in the sea.
