Crookhaven, Co. Cork

Crookhaven (Irish: An Cruachán) is a scenic village in County Cork, on the most south-western tip of Ireland. The village is steeped in history.

Many of its early inhabitants were in the business of supplying the ships as they sheltered in Crookhaven after or before a long voyage.

A winter population of about forty swells in the summer to about four hundred with the occupants of the many holiday homes arriving.
