Schull & The Mizen

Welcome to Schull

Set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty, Schull is one of the finest villages in West Cork, Ireland – an idyllic place to stay or visit along the Wild Atlantic Way. The prevailing south-westerly winds come over more than 2000 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 watersports. There is also tennis, pony trekking, a planetarium, fine restaurants, good accommodation, a boatyard, a weekly country market and a peninsula rich in archaeology and wildlife. It is wonderful country for walking and cycling and an excellent area for holidays, in winter and summer.

It's that delicious time of year when every hour there is another explosion, another burst of brilliant green as buds pop and leaves unfurl but you can still enjoy the architecture of the trees. Evening walks can bring on such sentiments! ... See MoreSee Less

Holger Lönze (www.facebook.com/Holger-C-L%C3%B6nze-Sculptor-286704304729061/) found Schull a few years ago when his car broke down - having decided to move to Ireland he was on an explorative journey when fate stepped in! Originally from Germany he studied in Ulster and has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe and here in Ireland. His latest project is a 'Sea Bell' a huge bronze bell (www.facebook.com/bangorbell) commemorating Columbanus' journey from Bangor to Italy. The bell is now finished and on it's way north.
1. His favourite view is coming over the Barnageeha (not sure how to spell this!) Gap and he wouldn't want any music playing.
2. He wishes he had taken up microlite flying 10 years ago.
3. If he has spare time he launches his currach and explores.
4. His preference is Murphy's and a really well made margarita pizza.
5. A favourite night out would be on a calm evening in his currach watching the day fade and the stars come out.
6. He wanted to be a pilot when he was very young.
7. Holger would very much like a drier workshop - one with heating would be even better.

A while back we promised to let you know when the first sea pink was spotted. Well today it was gloriously sunny so we headed out to explore, we took a little track off the road, found a place to park and headed into the wilderness...there were not many out yet but on a sheltered ledge I found this one blooming. So happy to see them again, they have to be the most cheerful wild flowers, and tenacious, they seem to thrive in the most inhospitable spots. ... See MoreSee Less

The Fastnet Film Festival (www.facebook.com/fastnetshortfilmfestival/) held the Cinematographer's Party and Press Launch in Dublin this year. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces (both local and very famous) amongst the crowd of young film makers, industry experts, award winners, and of course the national press! Arthur Mayne's is another great venue owned by Benny McCabe who is a regular Schull visitor. We are getting excited about this year's festival, it looks like it will be an awesome weekend in May. ...
