Courtmacsherry often referred to by locals as Courtmac, is a picturesque seaside village in County Cork, Ireland, on the southwest coast. It is about 30 miles southwest of Cork, and 15-20 minutes drive east from the town of Clonakilty. The village consists of a single long street on the south shore of Courtmacsherry Bay, with thick woods on rising ground behind. The woods (planted by the Earl of Shannon in the late 18th century) continue beyond the village eastwards to the open sea, ending abruptly at Wood Point. Between the village and "The Point" the trees run right to the water's edge and there are several natural bathing coves along the way.
