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.
