The Sand boat

Prop. Celia and Donal Levis

                                               Don't miss the boat in Ballydehob

When Ballydehob people say they're going "boating" it does not necessarily mean they are taking to

the sea. In actual fact, more often than not, the course they follow is a well charted one-

to   The Sandboat bar, a peaceful haven in many a storm, for sailor and landlubber alike.

Named after a traditional West Cork work boat, The Sandboat, is owned by Donal and Celia Levis,

whose family were amongst  the last to own and work one of these old sailing sand dredgers on

Beautiful Roaring  Water Bay.

Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this traditional pub, where time and tide stand still as you  wait for

your pint to settle. Well worth the wait it is, for the quality of the pint here is second to none, and who knows, you may be lucky enough to meet one of the old Sandboat men, who still frequent this long

established hostelry and hear, at first hand the fascinating story of  a centuries old way of life that is

now past and gone forever.

Rest on your oars in Ballydehob , and remember, "don't miss the boat"!
