Information
In the centre of an area of outstanding beauty, Schull is one of the loveliest villages in West Cork. The prevailing southwesterly winds come over more than two thousand miles of open sea and the air is marvellously clear and clean. The safe and welcoming harbour, the many islands off-shore and the Atlantic Ocean beyond provide an excellent base for water sports. There is also golf, tennis, pony trekking, a planetarium, fine restaurants, good accommodation, a boatyard and a peninsula rich in archaeology. It is wonderful country for walking and cycling and an excellent area for holidays, winter and summer.

Schull is a small but very attractive and lively town nestling between the foothills of Mount Gabriel and Schull Harbour. It is one of the most popular resorts of West Cork, especially to visiting yachtsmen.


It is a good place to search out your ceramic sculpture or batik wall hanging. And you'll eat well in this corner of Ireland!

Here you will be most welcome to visit the Planetarium (the only one in the Republic of Ireland) where Star Shows are given during the visitor season.

Mount Gabriel rises above the village. The two large white globes on the summit, like giant golf balls teed up for some celestial golfer, are for aircraft tracking. On its slopes can be found the audits where Bronze Age miners worked the copper deposits. Some of the things they made - spear heads, axes and intricately fashioned ornaments - may be seen in the National Museum in Dublin.

Looks like i am the first to put peň to papier here.
Schull is an adorable little village and is worth a visit.
I stayed over at Grove House, and was brilliant.
Nice place to get away from it all.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Baltimore Yacht Charters
This part of the south west coast of Ireland is dotted with islands, many of which are now uninhabited, perfect for peaceful sailing holidays. Others, including Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir Islands, have ferry access to the mainland.

The Fastnet Rock, west of Cape Clear, is Ireland's most southerly lighthouse and marks the halfway point in the famous biannual Fastnet Race for yachts.

Castletownshend, Schull, Goleen and Crookhaven are just some of the West Cork towns and villages to which Inishbeg sails on day charters. On weekend sailing holidays, Bantry, Glengarriff and Bere Island are within easy reach. Cruising further north to the Skelligs and Dingle is possible if you have a week or more aboard the yacht.

Your sailing holiday in West Cork, Ireland will be aboard Inishbeg, a brand new Bavaria 50, the flagship of the Bavaria range. A 50-footer, Inishbeg is designed for comfort and performance. Accommodation on board is luxurious and the safety, communications and navigation technology is top of the range.

Accommodation
Grove House
Grove House is a family run Bed and Breakfast Accommodation situated in Schull County Cork Ireland. We have five beautiful rooms, all en suite, overlooking Schull harbour or Mount Gabriel. Grove House is the perfect venue for smaller functions or private dinner parties as well as a guest house. The restaurant is also open to the public.

With two reception rooms, dining room, as well as the bedrooms, there is a lot on offer within the house itself. In the summer to sit outside with a glass of wine and leisurely watch the boats go by. Or in the winter to sit down by the fire with a cup of tea and a book after a brisk walk along the seashore.

On our menu there is mainly local produce used as ingredients and what ever is in season will be on the table. We are very fortunate in Schull to have so many local producers of cheese, meat and vegetables. With the dinner we have a substantial wine list and coffee can be served in the bar where there is a piano and a small pool table.
