The fishing village of Union Hall is situated approximately 74km south of Cork city in a sheltered corner of Glandore Harbour amidst the spectacular scenery of the West Cork coastline. Framed by a unique one-lane bridge, its quaintness and charm have been recognised by artists through the years. In the early 1700s it was lauded by the great patriot, Dean of Ireland, Jonathan Swift. More recently, it was chosen by the film maker, Sir David Puttnam, as the main venue for one of his films, “War of the Buttons”.MORE INFORMATION HERE;;


Union Hall is situated on the South West coast of Ireland. Located just off the N71 primary route which links Cork city to West Cork.From Cork city, follow signs for N71 or West Cork. Turn left at Leap village and then turn right over the bridge about a mile later.
