Located in the heart of the South West of Ireland, West Cork is almost a separate region in its own right. It begins at Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland, and runs in a westerly direction to Dursey Island at the tip of the Beara Peninsula.
Both landscape and coastline become more complex and rugged as you proceed westwards. It is festooned with little ports, bays, inlets and harbours and boats of every type and design are there, fishing, sailing and cruising.
The start point of the Wild Atlantic Way, West Cork is a unique and picturesque place to begin your journey of discovery on the Wild Atlantic Way.
