Ballycotton

Ballycotton is a coastal village in County Cork, Ireland, situated about 25 miles east of Cork city. It is a fishing village that sits on a rocky ledge overlooking Ballycotton Bay.

Just off the coast of Ballycotton lies Ballycotton Lighthouse, one of only two black lighthouses in all of Ireland. A must see, and a top visitor attraction, alongside the Ballycotton Cliff Walk, and the RNLB Mary Stanford, the only Irish lifeboat to receive a Gold Medal for a harrowing rescue that took place in February 1936
