Things to do

Activities and things to do near Three Castle Head Farm.

There is so much to do in this part of West Cork including:

•    Hiking and Hill walking
•    Horse Riding
•    Golf
•    Fishing
•    Surfing
•    Canoeing
•    Or simply lazing on the beach
(wetsuits, fishing rods and bicycles available for guests)

•    There are some great traditional Irish bars in the area.  We wholeheartedly recommend O’Sullivans and the Crookhaven Inn in Crookhaven and both the Lobster Pot and O’Mearas in Goleen.  Ireland has become a great country to eat out in and West Cork, the home of the Irish Slow Food movement, boasts wonderful Farmers Markets and restaurants.  Our favourite, nearby restaurants include Heron’s Cove in Goleen, The Crookhaven Inn in Crookhaven, Blair’s Cove and Good Things Café in Durrus and Organico in Bantry – a little further afield but a great place to have a healthy lunch.
