Getting to Inish Beg, Baltimore,
County Cork, Ireland
Includes crossing on the boat to Cork (Ringaskiddy) or arriving at Cork Airport. Follow signs to N71 (West Cork). The N71 (marked in red on above map) will take you to Skibbereen via Bandon, Clonakilty, Rosscarbery, Connonagh & Leap. (55 miles approx.) If you are coming through Cork on the ring road system this is very straightforward. However, if you are coming from either the ferry or airport, be sure to keep a sharp eye out for road signs leading to the N71, especially at Five Mile Bridge, as they can be a little confusing (the connection route to the N71 is the R613 at this junction).
From Skibbereen take the Baltimore Road (distance to Baltimore 7.32miles/11.78km).
We are 3.7 miles from the last roundabout at Skibbereen (Lidl and VW Auto Dealership are located on the roundabout) on the Baltimore Road (noted as R595 on the map above). At about 2.7 miles you will go through a double ‘S’ bend and see ‘The Old Court Inn’, and about 1 mile from that you will see a sign on your right for Inish Beg. This lane to your right leads to Inish Beg across a bridge. Follow the lane onto the island and through the pillars marked ‘Inish Beg Estate’ and come up to the main house by following the driveway. We will meet you there. Journey time, in average conditions, from the Cork ferry is 1 hr 40 mins, 1 hr 30 mins from the airport. Summer traffic can lengthen journey time.
