A break in rural Ireland to experience the quality 'Irish' welcome, good food and entertainment provides a wonderful holiday. My name is Nan McCarthy and I will be your host at Harbour Crest. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Harbour Crest B&B, a magnificent haven situated near Kinsale on the coastline in the County of Cork.
Kilbrittain nestles quietly in the coastal woodlands south of Bandon. The main beaches in the area are Harbour View, Coolmaine, Howes Strand and Burren. Kilbrittain Castle (C1035AD) is romantically located amid wooded hills, glens and beaches overlooking Kilbrittain Bay. The castle is now privately owned. In 1500 one of the great Irish manuscripts, The Book of the McCarthy Reigh or The Book of Lismore, was written here by the monk O'Cleary, one of The Four Masters. This Book can now be found in the National Museum in Dublin.
