Courtmacsherry is a beautiful fishing village nestled amongst the coves and beaches of the Seven Heads Peninsula.The village has a permanent population of over 500 and this usually doubles in the Summer months when people come to enjoy the locality and all it has to offer.
The Courtmacsherry area has many walks to enjoy including the Fuchsia Walk that takes you alongside the harbour entrance through beautiful woodland areas and along the shoreline of Courtmacsherry bay.This is a circular walk that will eventually lead you back to the village or alternatively you can keep going and enjoy the beaches and majestic coast line of the Seven Heads Peninsula. Much of the local flora and fauna around the area serves as an attraction in itself for holiday makers and bird watchers as it is quite distinct in the area..
The Village has a strong maritime history which continues today. The first lifeboat was established in Courtmacsherry in 1825 – one of the first to be founded in Ireland. The lifeboat is very much part of our proud history and tradition and has been involved in many historical rescues including the sinking of the Lusitania and the Fastnet 79 yacht race. The current lifeboat and station is located in the centre of the Village whose crew regularly come to the rescue or assist those in trouble in the locality and along and off the west cork coast.
Courtmacsherry Harbour today has an active fishing fleet, deep sea fishing and whale watching boats as well as a large variety of leisure craft.
