Kilbrittain, meaning “Britton’s church”, is a village located between Clonakilty and Kinsale in southwest Cork.

Kilbrittain Castle is the oldest inhabited castle in Ireland, dating back to 1035 when the original fortress is thought to have been built by the O’Mahony clan.

Nearby Coolmain Castle was built by the de Courcey family in the early 15th century. It has changed hands numerous times and was the property of Oliver Cromwell during the 17th century.

There a number of loop walks and trails in the area for anyone looking to explore the lovely countryside.
