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.

Just wanted to share with you the wonderful flowers bursting out of Spar's window boxes. This was taken this morning, not in the middle of the summer, but on October 2nd. Talking to Jeremy Brosnan he told me they were the result of the TLC given to them by Kathleen upstairs in the hardware shop - Well done! ... See MoreSee Less

Another perfect day - really we are being spoiled - just the right conditions to carry out a survey of a stretch of coastland. As part of the 2015 Coastwatch Survey (coastwatch.org/europe/ a Europe wide initiative to document our coastlands), we headed out with a picnic lunch. The biological diversity seems healthy, lots of different seaweeds - at least 11 different kinds, lichen, limpets/barnacles, jellyfish, shells, mussels, and plenty of birdlife, but most impressive is how little rubbish there was, there was some, but really not much, and for that we are thankful. What a beautiful stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way we have on our doorstep. ... See MoreSee Less
