Baltimore, Ireland Nov 01, 2017
At the end of the road from Skibbereen is the tiny harbour of Baltimore, point to catch a ferry to Sherkin or Cape Clear islands. Its main claim to fame is that it is the largest village in the parish of Rath, the southernmost parish in Ireland. The Algiers Inn, in the main street reminds one of the attack by pirates in 1631.

Baltimore castle has been renovated and is open to the public. Built in 1215 by a Lord Sleynie, and stood for 300-odd years until the infamous Oliver Cromwell arrived in Ireland and garrisoned some of his troops here.Began renovations in 1997 and is now open to the public from around Easter to October.

Bushe's pub has a large outdoor terrace where on a fine evening there is no better spot to catch the sunset. They also do accomodation for around 60/70€.
