Locations > Courtmacsherry
The picturesque village of Courtmacsherry lies midway between the old head of Kinsale and the Seven Heads on the rugged West Cork coast. It is a fishing harbour with deep water – one of the few in the area.
This charming village was formerly the summer home of the Earl of Shannon who planted many exotic trees, shrubs and woods around the village. The village of Courtmacsherry grew in Victorian times as a haven for holidaymakers from the city of Cork.
Much of the village life centres around the lifeboat service, with local voluntary crews ensuring that this historic lifeboat station, one of the first established in Ireland, maintains an active role in bringing safety and assistance to sailors in distress.
With a picturesque harbour, friendly locals and the fact that the road doesn’t go anywhere beyond, this makes it a very attractive location for filming.
