Visit

Nestled in the South West of Ireland between Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, Cork is Ireland’s largest county. Known as ‘Ireland’s Maritime Haven’, Cork has over 1,000km of coastline and the world’s second largest natural harbour. 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.
