Portmagee-Fishing Village

Portmagee Village is a little gem among all places I have visited in Ireland. It has everything you need for a holiday by the sea, like a little harbour where fishing boats come in at evening with their load, boats for day trips to the famous Skelligs go out every morning in calm weather, a mooring for sailing and pleasure boats and a tidy little harbour front with houses, pubs, a restaurant, coffee shop, Bed &Breakfast Accomodations and Holiday Houses, a general shop and the church all within walking distance.
You can walk around after a nice evening meal, take a few pictures in the setting sun over the harbour and when darkness is complete enjoy some time in a pub where there is regular music and set dancing sessions.
