The tiny hamlet of Crookhaven lies about as far down in south-west Cork as you can go without falling into the sea – tucked snugly on the sheltered side of a narrow neck of land which creates a deep inlet – the ‘crooked haven’ which gave the little settlement its name.
It’s the very epitome of a sleepy fishing village. Brightly-coloured boats bob at anchor; pastel-coloured cottages slumber in the sunshine along the sloping street.
A pub spills tables and chairs out on to the quayside among the drying fishing nets, a small shop sells groceries and postcards as well as shrimping nets, buckets and spades. It looks as though nothing ever has or ever could happen to disturb its peace. Distance from Cork 2 hours GPS Co-ordinates 51° 28’ 0” North, 9° 43’ 0” West
