Courtmacsherry Beach is just a stones throw from the Hotel. A perfect haven to sit back and relax. The woods which form a back drop to the hotel, sprawl all the way to the sea and hide a few gorgeous coves along the way, many that are perfect for a picnic and a dip. The white sandy coves at Broadstrand, Blindstrand and Dunworley are only a short drive from Courtmacsherry. These sheltered beaches are ideal for family outings.
Courtmacsherry a small fishing village situated 30mls west of Cork City has established itself as one of Irelands premier angling and Boat Trip centres. The clean atlantic waters warmed by the gulf stream add to the prolific marine life and species of fish which live off our shores. The purpose built angling boats the” Lady Patricia” and the” Lady Louise” were designed with the anglers comfort and safety in mind. The cruising speed of 18kts gives the angler more fishing time with shark and wreck fishing just 30minutes away. Dolphin , whale watching and scenic trips can also be arranged and we also offer our clients a fleet of self drive boats for use in the bay. We cater for groups or individuals so contact us for your West Cork Marine Experience.

Courtmacsherry sailing & Leisure has opted to use the new Pico Dingies. Laser Picos are extremely good boats for beginners as they would be easier to use than other boats which gives people more confidence in what they are doing and they are more likely to succeed.
We also have canoe lessons and canoes for hire. As well as this we use Pyranha Surf Jets which will give you hours of fun. The school also has a selection of wet suits and buoyancy aids available to rent. These are free of charge for people doing the courses. The base for all of these activities is the main Courtmacsherry beach located directly in front of the hotel. There are evening, weekend or weekly courses.

West Cork Equine Centre is about 15 minutes away and also Clonakilty Horse Riding Equestrian Centre . Riders of all abilities are welcome, a fun activity for all the family.
