The small, picturesque fishing village of Ballycotton is the hidden gem of East Cork, surrounded by sandy beaches, and overlooking the beautiful Ballycotton Bay. On the Sunday of the June Bank Holiday weekend, the pier at Ballycotton will host their Seafood and Shanty Family Fun day.

This is a day for all the family to enjoy, with a variety of arts and crafts stalls and music performed by buskers and local musicians, Duffy’s Cut. On the pier there will be cookery demonstrations and food stalls with crêpes from Lolo’s Kitchen, pizzas from Volcano Woodfired Pizza and plenty of seafood from the local area.

You can take boat trips from the harbour around Ballycotton Lighthouse Island, and there’s even the now traditional spectacle of the Crab Derby as the final event of the day. The aim of it all is to showcase the village and promote the importance of fishing and farming in the area.
