Courtmacsherry is a seaside village in County Cork.

There are a number of walks around Courtmacsherry, such as the Bay Walk from Courtmacsherry to Timoleague, stretching around 3 miles on flat pathways.

The Seven Heads Walk also passes through Courtmacsherry, as part of an approx. 42.5km trail around the peninsula.

The woods behind the village were planted by the Earl of Shannon in the late 18th century.

The village is now home to the fastest of the RNLI fleet of all-weather lifeboats. The Coast Guard was first established in 1825, spending its early years chasing smugglers along the coast.

Courtmacsherry man Patrick Keohane, a Royal Navy Officer, was a member of the second support group assisting Captain Robert Scott on his ill-fated expedition to reach the South Pole in 1911/12.
