Its no wonder that West Cork is called as “A Place Apart” Nature sets the pace in this beautiful south west corner of Ireland – stretching from smart south-coast Kinsale to three rugged westerly peninsulas reaching into the wild Atlantic: Mizen Head, Sheep’s Head and Beara.
Enjoy an adventurous day trip viewing the cliff scenery of Mizen Head and long the way seeing some of Ireland’s greatest scenery in the West Cork region, renowned for its rugged peninsulas, beaches, villages and towns.
Your first stop will be Gougane Barra where you will explore one of Ireland’s oldest natural forest parks as well as Gougane Barra’s famous 19th Century church St. Finbarr’s Oratory. You will then continue on to Bantry one of West Cork’s most vibrant towns where you will enjoy a stroll and have an opportunity to purchase some Irish souvenirs. Finally travel along the coastline of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way before reaching Mizen Head. Here you will visit the Mizen Head Visitor Centre where you can experience the magic of the Mizen.
Return to Cork via Clonakilty where you can photograph the colourful streets, visit a museum or perhaps find a pub for a pint of Guinness.
