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.

Not all of us have been distracted by 'da fil-ums'! While we have been enjoying the phenomenon that is the Fastnet Short Film Festival others have been hard at work. Seemingly overnight fields have gone from billowing clouds of lush greeness to a patchwork of giant corduroy...now come those chunky shiny black rolls that keep the cows happy all winter. #schullisgreen ...

When they say "Our Village is our Screen" the Fastnet Short Film Festival has not lied! The village is bedecked with brilliant blue bubbling banners and everywhere you go volunteers are busy running errands and stylish film people wander from venue to venue. You overhear technical conversations about editing, lighting and casting. Apparently there are even a few Oscar winners around...it is all very exciting. There is lots on over the weekend for all age groups...so c'mon down! #schullfestival #CFSFF ... See MoreSee Less
