Louise Vinciguerra on her blog Visa First has a humorous guide to Irish Slang. If you want to know what “Fancy a few scoops” and “Sound as a pound!” mean, have a look at it.

West Cork – A Place Apart

West Cork is the place many Dubliners head for – leaving hurried city lives behind to play along the long zig-zagging coastline, and walk or ride through peaceful inland woods and valleys. It is where those in the know go for a spectacular holiday, away from the hordes.

Hundreds of inlets, tiny coves, safe harbours and beaches are just right for long active days in the salty air – learning to sail, surfing, diving, whale watching, island-hopping, bird spotting, kayaking on a salt-water lake in the moonlight, messing about in boats. Or simply eating a fresh crab sandwich on a quayside.

For more information see what the Discover Ireland website has to say about the area.

Anchor Haven is situated in the beautiful, remote village of Crookhaven. Why not make it your next holiday destination?
