About Baltimore

Baltimore, Co. Cork is situated 8 miles from the quaint market town of Skibbereen. Baltimore has a permanent population of just over two hundred people, although it grows every summer with visitors who cannot help but return and who are now very much part of the local life. Sailors, land lubbers, scuba divers, cyclists, walkers, the yachting boat fraternity to the wooden boat enthusiasts, foodies, young and old alike descend on Baltimore largely from the four corners of Ireland and increasingly from Europe to soak up the unique and relaxed holiday atmosphere that is Baltimore.
