Durrus

Durrus is a village in west Cork. It is located 9.7km from Bantry at the head of the Sheep's Head peninsula - a European Destination of Excellence - and the Mizen Head peninsula. It is a key staging post on the Wild Atlantic Way driving route which helps tourists to explore the Irish coastline from the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork. A number of public gardens have been established in the area, including 'Kilvarock' and 'Cois Abhann'. The village is the location of Cool na Long castle, built by the McCarthy (Muclagh) family. The castle is now in a ruined state, despite various efforts to have it taken into state charge over the years. There are a number of archaeological sites in the area including standing stones, ring forts, fulacht fiadhs, cairns and more. Local amenities include café's, bars, restaurants, self-catering accommodation and a variety of shops. There is also a national school in the village.
