Ballydehob also has the reputation of nurturing the arts, and is home to several writers, artists, sculptors, and craftspeople. Each year the village holds both a jazz festival and a traditional music, song and dance festival.

This bridge is now disused, but provides panoramic views of Roaringwater Bay from the walkway. At the west end of the village there is a monument of the late Danno Mahony known as The Irish Whip he won the NWA World wrestling title from Jim Londos in Boston on June 30th 1935.
