Barley Cove has long been a favourite seaside destination attracting families back year after year.  Barley Cove is a large sandy beach backed by sand dunes which were thrown up in the tidal wave which swept Europe after the earthquake in Lisbon in 1755. Today the dunes have been partially eroded but are protected like much of the coastal area round this area as European designated Special Areas of Conservation.  Barley Cove is located between the towns of Goleen and Crookhaven in West Cork.


This is the ideal holiday destination with a host of varied activities to appeal to everyone whatever their interests including:


Barley Cove is a long golden sandy beach ideal for leisurely walks and for swimming.  The beaches of Galley Cove and Cockle Beach are also close by which are ideal for water sporting activities.


Barley Cove is just a short drive from the West Cork Golf Academy and driving range in Ballydehob and the 18 hole Skibbereen & West Country is a twenty minute drive. Other courses in the area include Bantry (reduced green fees), Glengarriff, Clonakilty or Roscarbery.


The closest equestrian centre to Barley Cove is in Goleen (a five minute drive away).  It caters for every level of rider and is ideal for children. 


Barley Cove and the Mizen Peninsula offer some breathtaking views along truly spectacular cliff tops and coastal walks. 


Charter boats are available for deep sea angling out of Crookhaven and other fishing villages in the area.  A wide range of fish species is usually recorded each year from this area.


There are two sailing schools located within a fifteen minute drive of Barley Cove Beach Holiday Homes namely Crookhaven Harbour Sailing Club and Fastnet School in Schull offering Sail Training Courses during the Summer for holidaymakers to the area.  


West Cork is a diver's paradise with spectacular drop-offs and an abundant marine life.
