About Courtown for Cottage Holidays
If coming to Courtown with children then they will not be disappointed or short of things to do on a cottage holiday. Firstly, the golden sandy beach is a great place to spend time building sand castles and paddling in the sea.

Courtown features many little individual shops which are perfect for purchasing souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back at home. There are also some great restaurants, pubs and take-away places, including The Dinky Take-Away which was voted as serving the ‘best chips in Ireland’ by an Irish radio station.
A great day out in Courtown whilst on a coastal break away may involve a day trip to Pirates Cove, which is packed full of fun activities to try including a great adventure golf course. This golf course is unlike any other you will have been to before and it is set within rivers, tropical gardens, caves and a pirate ship, and children will adore a trip here. With a coffee shop serving delicious snacks, you can make a day out of a visit to Pirates Cove. Forest Park Leisure Centre is another great attraction to visit for the day for families, as it features a large swimming pool, water playground and fun waterslide, as well as a sauna, gym and steam room for the adults! The Ounavarra River flows into the Courtown Harbour and is a very picturesque body of water to take a morning stroll by.
