Hiking and Travel in West Cork

By April 5, 2016 Travel

Stretching from the town of Kinsale out to the Mizen lighthouse and up to Bantry, lies some of Irelands best scenery and quaint Irish villages. Welcome to West Cork, a hiking and photographers dream. After leaving the city of Cork, the landscapes opens up and soaks you up. Although the weather can be (and will be) a bit rainy on and off, the scenery is gorgeous and so is the food! Think seafood chowder in Kinsale, crab sandwiches in Crookhaven and some delicious deserts of Ballymaloe and a breakfast in Clonakilty.

For hiking routes, you just need to leave your accommodation front door and look right or left. There is simply hundreds of hiking options. An hour, a day or a week! Sheeps head, Mizen head, or the looped walks of Schull and Glengarriff.

After a few days you’ll realise West Cork is spoiled with some of the best walking routes in the country.
