It has many internationally renowned visitor attractions such as Mizen Head Footbridge, Spike Island, The Jameson Experience, Fota Wildlife Park, Charles Fort and Doneraile Estate to name but a few. There are 8 islands in West Cork, 7 of which are inhabited and each with their own unique culture and history.
