This part of Ireland is just beautiful and we...

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
Schull is one of the loveliest villages in West Cork, Ireland. It is set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty with outcrops of granite rock juxtaposed with rolling grassy hillsides full of gorse and wild flowers.

The highest point in West Cork is Mount Gabriel which rises directly behind Schull from which there are magnificent views over Schull Harbour, beyond to all the islands in Roaring Water Bay, to Baltimore and out to Cape Clear and the Fastnet Rock. Schull is almost as far southwest as you can be in Ireland - just 10 miles or so from the most south-westerly point of Ireland at Mizen Head. The climate is extremely mild with prevailing southwesterly winds and the benign effects of the Gulf Stream. The air is marvellously clear and clean.
