Union Hall is a small fishing village located in County Cork, Ireland, located on the west side of Glandore Harbour. Its nearest neighbour to the west is Castletownshend; to the east, Glandore Village. It is approximately 10 kilometers east of Skibbereen. The main source of employment is fishing and the pier has its own ice plant and fish processing factory run by Glenmar Shellfish Ltd.Among its many tourist attractions are boat trips to view whales, dolphins and seals. Seals can be seen all year round, with dolphins and Fin Whales, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales present in summer months.PopulationAccording to the last census, 192 people live in Unionhall. However, during the summer months, and at weekends throughout the year, the population swells with "second homers", mainly from Cork city. With the improvement in the roads, Union Hall is becoming a commuter village.LocationThe village lies on the coast and has a small harbour for small fishing boats and other small craft. The village also lies on a hill - this shows itself through the narrow alleys in the east of the village.AccommodationThere are several good B&B's around the area.HistoryDuring the Irish Civil War, Free State government troops landed from a ship, Helga, at the quay in Union Hall in order to out-flank the local Republican forces.
