Clonakilty often referred to by locals simply as Clon, is a small town on the N71 national secondary road in West County Cork, Ireland, approximately 45 minutes away by road to the west of Cork City. The town is on the southern coast of the island, and is surrounded by hilly country devoted primarily to dairy farming.
This is one of the most beautiful Towns in the whole of Ireland and has a great combination of being a very pretty town with friendly people. Their open mindedness makes filming very easy and it is an ideal base for even a full size film crew.. Great locations are within easy reach and the abundance of well priced Hotels and shops, bars & restaurants make it an ideal place to base a crew.
The town won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 1999 and every year since has gained awards for its environmental efforts. The cleanliness is the result in part of the voluntary efforts of local shopkeepers and staff. In 2003, Clonakilty became Ireland’s first ever official Fair Trade Town. In 2007 it was awarded the status of European Destination of Excellence by the European Commission at a ceremony in Portugal and is Ireland’s first recipient of this prestigious title.
