Courtmacsherry, Co. Cork

Courtmacsherry (Irish: Cúirt Mhic Seafraidh -- MacSharry's Court) is a picturesque sea-side village in County Cork, on the southwest coast. It is about 48km (30 miles) southwest of the city of Cork, and 10 minutes drive east from the town of Clonakilty.

The village consists of a single long street on the south shore of Courtmacsherry Bay, with thick woods on rising ground behind. The woods (planted by the Earl of Shannon in the late eighteenth century) continue beyond the village eastwards to the open sea, ending abruptly at Wood Point. Between the village and "The Point" the trees run right to the water's edge and there are several natural bathing coves along the way.

The village's main industry consists of commercial and sport fishing. A moderately sized tourist industry thrives during the summer months. There are several fine beaches nearby, namely Dunworley Strand, Moloney Strand, Broadstrand and Blind Strand.

There is also at the end of July - beginning of August a festival with lots of activities and competitions for children and entertainment and events for adults.
