The story of The Pink Elephant...
The Pink Elephant has been a restaurant and bar for over 50 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.
If you had been in The Pink in May 1915 you would have had a grandstand view of the Lusitania as it was torpedoed and sunk a few miles offshore. More recently you could have seen a 60 foot fin whale that beached just along the coast.
The building was recently refurbished, giving the bar and dining room the best of our wonderful views. Free wi-fi available. Outside is a large patio for dining when weather allows and extensive lawns for relaxing or playing. Large private car-park.
