Nestled in a quiet cove on the north shore of Fermeuse Harbour lies the community of Port Kirwan. Originally visited by Portuguese fishermen in the early 16th century, and later by English and Irish settlers, Port Kirwan is a traditional Newfoundland fishing community that still retains some of that old world charm.

In modern day Port Kirwan the fishery remains the key driver of the local economy, the only change being that it is crab, not cod, which is caught and sold. Here the natural environment not only influences how residents earn a living, but also how they enjoy their downtime. With the Atlantic Ocean in their front yard, and a pristine forest in their backyard, it's a perfect setting for a wide range of outdoor recreational activities.

Located in the heart of The Irish Loop, Port Kirwan offers residents the safety and comfort of small-town life. Such a peaceful town in such a beautiful setting - it's not hard to see why residents feel lucky to call Port Kirwan home
