About the neighbourhood
Ballydehob (Béal an Dá Chab) is a charming village on the south west coast of Ireland. Lying about 20 miles east of Mizen Head, Europe's most westerly point, it is embraced by colourful hills and rich natural beauty and wildlife; the perfect place from which to explore West Cork. The village and its environs has a vibrant and diverse population, and the variety of bars, good eating places, fun festivals and community events ensure a warm welcome. Enjoy a walk by the river and across the 12 arch bridge, and take a stroll through the village and maybe participate in some 'light refreshments'. And don't forget to experience Ballydehob by night either – live music and the craic are all part of the make up! West Cork is the place to head for – leaving hurried city lives behind to play al...
