Discover West Cork

Scenically breath-taking, West Cork is clean and green, peaceful and restful, yet the landscape never reveals all its secrets at once, that is why it is so fascinating, that is why there is always more to discover. It takes time to do that, time to stop and relax, West Cork time. How can you experience all this? Well, it's only our advice, but don't try too hard, sometimes when you focus too hard on something you miss what really matters. As the New York Times put it: Ireland can be that place you missed as you travelled around Ireland, looking for Ireland.

We know that essence can be found here in West Cork, along with the best in food, drink, heritage, music and company. Allow plenty of time, there's no rush; this is a place of pleasant, accidental discoveries, a place where you never know what's waiting round the bend or down the street. And be prepared to get side-tracked, that's another of the delights of being in West Cork...
