  • I will be coming from Clonakilty but I won’t have a car. Is this possible? If so, what are my options? Thank you!

    Hi Thanks for your enquiry. Not having a car to get around can be difficult as public transport is limited, and only travelling along the main N71 road. There is a taxi service in Rosscarbery and Skibbereen.

Shearwater B & B sits on an elevated site overlooking Glandore Harbour, in the picturesque fishing village of Union Hall. The house was built in 1974, and has been extensively renovated over the years. The property provides panoramic views of the harbour and countryside. The patio offers an idea area to sit and watch the fishing boats returning in the evening, or walk down to the harbour to see the day's catch. Shearwater provides quiet areas in the garden should you just want to take in the sun or read a book. It is a easy 6 min walk to the village, on a level pavemented road, where there are 2 bisto pubs providing excellent bar food including fresh fish, steaks and vegetarian menus. There is also a traditional pub providing good beer and conversation with the locals. The village also has supermarket, providing all essentials, wine, beer, bakery and a ATM.

Shearwater is owned and run by Adela & Ronnie Nugent. We started the business in 1996 and have continiously endeavoured to improve standards and to make all our guest enjoy a genuinely warm welcome and truly comfortable accommodation when away from home. We aim to exceed the expectations of our guests by providing personal attention and unparalleled service, and to inspire them to return again, and again.
