Ballydehob Travel Tips

Enjoying Ireland's History with Ballydehob Vacation Rentals

Ballydehob, a village in Ireland's southernmost county, Cork, was establised in Celtic times, when copper was mined from the nearby mountain, Mt. Gabriel. The name of the town in Gaelic means, "The place where two rivers meet, where the sun always shines." The village is surrounded by farms, fields, stone walls, and the Bronze Age stone circles that dot Ireland. Ballydehob today is popular with tourists who seek Cork house rentals where they can get away from it all, while having easy access to historic Ireland.

Great Food and Great Sights in County Cork

Vacationgoers will find amazing food in Ballydehob, thanks to the town's farmer's market, which sells everything from produce to cheese - all of it local and fresh. Ballydehob has four annual festivals, a traditional music event and a jazz show in April, a summer boating celebration in late August, a threshing and vintage farm fair in October. Cork County also holds some of Ireland's most scenic coastline. And Ballydehob accomodation is easy to find when you book a vacation rental. And after a day of sightseeing and festival-going, a traveler might find herself on Pinter's St. in Ballydehob, where there are eleven pubs. Thankfully, these are but a short cab ride from the nearest Cork house rental.

Castles Everywhere - Even Jeremy Irons' Castle

County Cork is home to the most castles in Ireland. The Celts warred fiercely here, building many castles to stronghold their clans. Today, these castles welcome tourists instead of fending off enemies. West Cork's most-restored castle, Kilcoe Castle, which is owned by actor Jeremy Irons, is a popular place for people interested in getting a unique lesson about Ireland's history.
