The peninsulas of West Cork are an ancient place dipped in tradition, mythology and legend.
The gem of West Cork is the town of Kinsale, a colourful bohemian hotspot and long-time magnet for artists and chefs. Quaint and picturesque, Kinsale is the perfect outdoor lover’s base to explore West Cork.
People come from every corner of the globe to call Kinsale home, turning the little town of Kinsale into a bubbling mix of culture and tradition. The remoteness of West Cork’s peninsulas (Mizen Head, Sheep’s Head, Beara Peninsula) and its islands (Cape Clear, Skerkin Island, Garnish Island) connected by meandering country lanes, overgrown farmers’ tracks and narrow rural paths, all combine to make this the perfect region to explore the great outdoors in Ireland.
