This Atlantic frontier, rugged with wild peninsulas and crashing islands, is a bastion of ‘Old Ireland’. An enchanting pocket of verdant wilderness in the southwest of Ireland, West Cork is known for its languid pace and as an escape from the trappings of modern life. Richly fertile farmland is dotted with bustling harbour towns, which add splashes of colour to the vision of soft greens tempered by grey ocean mists. The rewards of the this fecundity are reaped in the local cuisine, making West Cork something of a gourmet destination which is bursting with fresh, quality produce at every turn. The Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s spectacular coastal route, ends (or begins) in Cork’s picturesque harbour town of Kinsale.
