What’s On in West Cork - May 2024

It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors and the Wild Atlantic Way, especially with the weather set to improve.

Our history column focuses on the iconic Fastnet Rock, which is a magnet in West Cork, We have built this edition around maritime activities to try, whether a leisurely boat trip, whale and dolphin watching, exploring the islands, surfing or fishing.

For land lubbers The Model Village in Clonakilty is well worth a visit. As regards food, fire up the BBQ or Grab and Go with a tailored picnic box from our friends at The Wild Garlic in Dunmanway.

As we head towards the longest day make sure to have a fantastic summer.
