Take the family out for the day and explore the fascinating history and culture of the area. Take a trip to Cem Hill in Union Hall, Castle Salem in Rosscarbery, the Skibbereen Heritage Centre in Skibbereen or visit the birth place of Michael Collins outside Clonakilty.
No matter what the weather is like a bit of rain is unlikely to dampen the spirits of the sailing community. Winds tend to be a little more powerful which is great for the extra power and speed. As Glandore and Union Hall have a fairly sheltered harbour it is a great location for a family day out sailing.
There are multiple craft and gift stores dotted around the area. Many of these support the growing number of local artsts. Not suprisingly so as West Cork is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland.
