MEET THE PEOPLE OF SCHULL... Maurice Coughlan

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.

We never get lost in this area as we always have Mt Gabriel as our compass. That familiar shape is there comfortably waiting for us to come back. When we return to West Cork from far away we always let out the sigh of satisfaction - aah we're almost home! ... See MoreSee Less

Destined for some of the finest tables from some of the finest waters ~ the famous Roaring Water Bay crab. So wonderful to see a traditional activity taking place down at the harbour, crabs from over 70 pots dotted around the islands. ... See MoreSee Less

Went down to the pier to see if anything could be seen....not much in honesty, the fog has been incredibly thick these last couple of days...you can just about make out the nearest boats floating in the murky mist of the harbour.

Was very lucky to catch this guy just taking off into the mist!
