About Pennan

Pennan Village & Harbour, location of Local Hero

Nestled at the foot of imposing cliffs, away from main roads and the bustle of everyday life, this tiny former fishing village is quiet, peaceful and romantic. Sit out on a summers evening with a glass of wine and watch the setting sun, or get up early with a cup of coffee to see the rising sun - breathtaking.

Seals and dolphins often frequent the local waters, and boat trips can be arranged to see them more closely. There is also an abundance of sea birds and wildlife. Refreshing walks along the beaches or along the cliffs, as well as secluded beaches and hidden coves make Pennan a unique getaway.

Things to do include sea fishing, golf on several excellent courses within a 10 mile radius, Horse riding, visiting museums, stately homes, castles or the whiskey trail, to try some of our famous whiskeys and to see how they are made. Or you can just take it easy, relax and sit and listen to the calming effect of the sea, read that book you have meant to read or sketch our beautiful coast line.

A short stroll along the village is the famous Pennan Inn, serving lunches and evening meals. The Garden Arms in nearby Gardenstown, the next village along the coast to Pennan, also serves lovely home made food.

The nearest paper/Spar shop is 2 miles away in the coastal village of Gardenstown, along with a bakery for your hot crispy bread and pies, a butchers and doctors surgery. Come and relax in Pennan, it really is just "The Ultimate Getaway".
