The Story of The Pink Elephant...
The Pink Elephant has been a restaurant and bar for over 55 years. The building itself is much older, being one of the oldest houses around. It is set on a spectacular site overlooking Courtmacsherry Bay just at the point where the Kilbrittain and Argideen estuaries meet to enter the Atlantic Ocean.
Free wi-fi. Large patio for outside dining when weather allows & extensive lawns for relaxing or playing. Private car-park.
