    I've been offered a chance to move to Clonakilty (through work) and i'm wondering what the area is generally like, is there anything to do, clubs, societies etc. Currently in Dub so it would be hard to adjust to the quietness of the area (from W. Cork originally).

    "Clon" is a great spot... a little quiet during the week but weekends are great for going out in...

    I lived there for 8 months last year while waiting for my new house to be ready and I would love to live there permanently!

    There is plenty to do during the week, there's a gym/pool in the Quality Hotel, plenty of clubs and societies like Camera Club, Yoga, Pilates, Badminton, classes at the Community Schools, surfin in Inchydoney, great beaches and walks...

    Plus, of course you have De Barras... they've a comedy night every month now (Ive been every night)...the previous line ups have been Jason Byrne, Des Bishop, Ardal O Hanlon, Maeve Higgins....etc etc... If you're not familiar with DeBarras check out www.debarra.ie. They've great music there, last year I seen bands like David Kitt, Bell X1, John Spillane...

    Great buzz around the place during the summer...

    Only downside of course is the cost of houses, is very expensive to buy in the town itself...

    Good luck with the move if you decide to make it...
