Brimming with attractions, County Cork is a delight to explore and there's no better base than a County Cork cottage. Discover the city of Cork, fast becoming one of Europe's hippest spots, with an unrivalled range of shops, restaurants and bars, plus fantastic cultural venues. A stone's throw away is the pretty village of Blarney nestling in wooded countryside. Make your way to Blarney Castle and climb its battlements to kiss the magical Blarney Stone - guaranteed to give you the 'gift of the gab'!
For gourmet restaurants, superb sailing and legendary golf, the attractive Irish Heritage Town of Kinsale comes up trumps. Youghal is another prime example, featuring medieval town walls and two Blue Flag beaches. Avid walkers and cyclists should opt for Bantry, a bustling market town wedged amid spectacular scenery. Both the Sheep's Head Way and Beara Way are on the doorstep, way-marked routes along two rugged peninsulas. Expect incredible views and stunning plants (thanks to the Gulf Stream climate), while Bronze Age remains and early Christian ring-forts add another dimension. Play championship golf at Bantry Bay, spend a day at Ilnacullin Gardens, or visit the exquisite estate of Bantry House.
To the far south-west lies Mizen Head, encircled by roaring waves and home to a fascinating maritime museum. Close by is the almost Caribbean setting of Barley Cove - a beach not-to-be-missed and fantastic for surfing. What else? The Model Railway Village at Clonakilty, the nature trails of Millstreet Country Park, the Fota Wildlife Park, whale watching, diving…options are endless on a County Cork cottage holiday!
