West Cork is considered by many to be Ireland at its finest, blending spectacular landscapes with small charming and friendly towns.
Nestled on stunning Roaringwater Bay and acting as a gateway to the Mizen Peninsula, Ballydehob is a lively artistic town bursting with good music, good food, and good craic. Ballydehob knows how to throw a party and the calendar is full of music, food and even yoga festivals throughout the year.
Ballydehob is the perfect base to explore all that West Cork has to offer and a great place to get out onto the sea with a trip to Cape Clear or the other islands dotted around the Bay.
The village is about a 1 hour 30 min drive west from Cork City and Cork Airport and is part of the Wild Atlantic Way. You can also take bus 237 from the bus station at Parnell Place.
