Skibbereen, Co. Cork

Skibbereen (Irish: An Sciobairín), is a town in Ireland known as the capital of West Cork. The name "Skibbereen" (often shortened to "Skibb") means "little boat harbour". The river Ilen which runs through the town reaches the sea at Baltimore.

Skibbereen is the 'hub' of West Cork and it is an ideal base from which to discover the delight that the area has to offer. But Skibbereen - the town - has more to offer. Thankfully, the advance of commercialism hasn't yet reached Skibbereen which means that the town still retains its local, colourful and friendly feel.
