West Cork

Those who venture out to West Cork will find a corner of Ireland that time forgot. Tidy old market towns dot a coast of deserted beaches and low-slung craggy mountains lining the navy North Atlantic Ocean. Outdoor adventurists come for the surfing, angling, and kayaking among the myriad inlets and bays--however, the region also offers plenty of leisurely activities, such as whale watching, sailing, and driving tours, for those who prefer to sit back and observe the landscape. The further west you go, the more rugged it gets, but you'll find fresh seafood and hearty Irish meals wherever you venture. Our Ireland trip planner allows you to schedule your trip to West Cork, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
