Woodpoint House B&B is situated within thirty acres of woodland and overlooks Courtmacsherry Bay with views to Old Head of Kinsale.
The six bedrooms (various combinations of double, twin and triple available) are quiet and comfortable. Trish believes in old-fashioned hospitality. Rather than sit in your room and make your own tea and coffee, she encourages you to use the communal sitting room (memorabilia from the Lusitania, which sank just off the coast, on the walls) where she will make you proper coffee and real tea, on request. Or bring your own wine, and, settling in one of the old leather armchairs, perhaps play a game of cards in front of the open fire.
Trish is also a Ballymaloe-trained chef, so breakfast is of a high standard; local produce, beautifully cooked. On request, she can also cook up a fine evening meal with fish caught (perhaps by you) locally that day, and accompanied by wild seasonal vegetables foraged in the surrounding woodland.
Courtmacsherry is a small coastal village 30 miles southwest of Cork City and the international airport. The village, with its sheltered harbour, has established itself as one of southwest Ireland’s premier sea angling and boat trip centres. Because of this, and its wide selection of local pubs, “Courtmac” is known locally as “A quiet drinking village with a fishing problem”.
It is also situated close to the beginning of both the Seven Heads Walk and the far longer Wild Atlantic Way that reaches all the way up the west coast to Donegal. Courtmac is home to the Courtmacsherry Offshore Lifeboat and the village has a number of other facilities such as a recently refurbished pier and pontoon for boats and visiting yachts, a promenade and tennis court. The village has also started up its own community shop, stocking all the necessities. Attractions include Courtmacsherry Sea Angling Centre, Boat Hire, Dolphin and Whale viewing.
