Nearby Clonakilty looks like a living postcard. It is one of Ireland’s best-known tourist destinations. Its heritage is more varied than the image suggests. The town is a melting pot of music and musicians, and it’s possible to find live music most nights at a multitude of pubs (Clonakilty was home to the late Noel Redding, one-time bassist with the Jimi Hendrix Experience). And that’s not even getting started on the local black pudding.
If planning an impromptu surf, check out the live webcam on their website to see if the swell is on your side.
