Baltimore is in the part of southwest Ireland known as West Cork. This is the extreme southern tip of Ireland, nearest to the Gulf Stream. Baltimore's large natural harbour is well sheltered but within a few minutes of leaving the pier you can be passing the beacon at the harbour's mouth and into the open sea. There are no tidal restrictions on entering and leaving port and the numerous sheltering islands to the west mean fishing is often possible even in poor weather.
Baltimore is popular with holidaymakers so there is plenty of accommodation and a good assortment of pubs and restaurants. Some of them are clustered around the village square (more a triangle really) which overlooks the harbour. Relax here with a drink after the day's fishing and enjoy the spectacular view across sea and islands towards Mizen Head, the 'land's end' of Ireland. You won't find any shopping malls in Baltimore but there is a small supermarket with ATM while the nearby market town of Skibbereen caters for all needs.
