County Cork, in Southwest Ireland is the largest county in the Republic of Ireland and also the location of the country's second largest city.
North Cork is a renowned destination for anglers, with several long rivers - notably the Blackwater, providing plentiful fish in a beautiful setting.
West Cork is more touristed, and it's easy to understand why - the southernmost coast of Ireland stretches for over 100km from Cork Harbour through verdant farmland, to three peninsulas jutting out into the Atlantic. It may not quite have some of the drama of Kerry or Donegal, but the little villages and coves and rocky islands are surely some of the prettiest places in Ireland.
Blarney Castle is an old ruin famous for the Blarney stone that supposedly gives the gift of eloquence to all those who kiss it. You have to bend over backwards on the top of the castle to kiss it.
Kinsale is situated in the estuary of the river Bandon, nestling among hills that hide it from the open sea. Because of its situation it is a historic port and is still very popular with pleasure sailors and anglers.
Cobh is a small seaport town in County Cork, Southwest Ireland. It's on Great Island in Cork Harbour. In the era of transatlantic travel it was the first and last port in Europe and it was the last port for the Titanic in 1912.
Clonakilty is a busy market town, but is only 3 km from one of the largest and most popular beaches in West Cork and is the centre for family holidays in this part of the county.
