About the Area

Skibbereen (pop.2000), on the Ilen river, a little inland from the indented West Cork coast, is known as the capital of West Cork. It's a lively and picturesque town filled with the brightly-painted houses typical of this region. It's also a centre of good food and the arts.

The West Cork Arts Centre showcases a diverse range of art and theatre and Skibbereen is renowned for the quality of its food with many artisan producers living nearby. During the Famine, Skibbereen was one of the worst affected towns in the country and today the Skibbereen Heritage Centre's Great Famine Exhibition uses contemporary sources and dramatisation to tell its story. Outside the town a marine lake, Lough Hyne, is a nature reserve with a unique ecology and many rare species. Many celebrities and foreigners have chosen to settle in this region, giving Skibbereen and environs a cosmopolitan feel.
