County Cork is the southernmost section of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Perhaps you are planning to travel the entire Wild Atlantic Way coastal route starting in Cork (or ending in Cork) or are just dropping by for a day or two? However you choose to sample the delights of County Cork you will not be disappointed.

This stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way coastline weaves through a sub-tropical landscape of inlets, islands and Blue Flag beaches. The Discovery Points shown below are selected to help you plan your visit with the Signature Discovery Points of Old Head of Kinsale, Mizen Head and Dursey Island offering truly special experiences. They are marked with orange icons on our map of Cork Wild Atlantic Way Discovery Points below.

Take the opportunity to find your sea legs with a boat trip, kayaking, sailing, whale watching or a spot of fishing. Work up an appetite with a bracing walk in the sea air and satisfy your hunger with wonderful local artisan food.

West Cork is famous for it’s great festivals and vibrant arts & crafts community so there is always something interesting to do and see.
