The undulating hills of West Cork meander across the narrow peninsula that stretches out into the Atlantic. Rugged coasts and sheep-shorn grass make for perfect walking country. West Cork is a region that values its food – particularly its cheese – above all else, making it a foodie’s paradise.
Rich in ancient history, Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) villages, and tranquil coves, this often-overlooked region is actually one of the finest places for outdoor enthusiasts to explore. The narrow country lanes and rural villages make West Cork feel like the place at the ends of the earth.
This short break self drive trip is perfect on its own, or the West Cork Escape can be extended for those looking for a longer holiday. Looking to get even more amazing experiences? Check out the options to upgrade and extend your stay in West Cork. The minimum group size is 2.
