With the centenary celebrations, the drama onboard the ship recreating its journey as well as the re-launch of the movie in 3D, this past few weeks have been all about one thing, the Titanic, who was last seen intact sailing past the West Cork coastline from its last port of call in Cobh, a hundred years ago. To mark this fact in the past week the many coastal villages of West Cork have been busy with beacons lit to mark the journey of the Titanic, up and down its coastline.
Aside from remembering and honouring the maiden and sole voyage of the ill-fated liner, West Cork has been abuzz as the long bright days of summer have been drawing nearer. With the busy summer season ahead, the many draws of a summer in West Cork are moving closer, with the area surrounding Skibbereen offering numerous activities for the local or visitor.
Skibbereen is ideal base for visitors to access the West Cork region and our Hotel West Cork is suitably located in the town, on the Ilen River with easy access to the region’s main routes. From heading off on a West Cork whale watching tour, sailing, island hopping to Carberys hundred isles (only 3 inhibited) and scuba diving to sea angling on West Cork coastline or maybe even West Cork sea kayaking in the rivers and coastal waters as far East as Cobh harbour, this wonderful area has much to offer the active and adventurous.
So while we mark the occasion when the iconic liner left our shores for good, perhaps it is best to note the coastline she left behind by taking advantage ofthe plethora of land, water and sea-based activities and attractions available and things to do in West Cork.
