West Cork

(7,000+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Historic Sites Parks Museums
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. With our online itinerary creator, Ireland vacations can be built around trips to West Cork and other destinations in Ireland.
