Welcome to the West Cork Islands – seven inhabited islands and a garden paradise – strung like jewels along Ireland’s southwest coastline.
They’re the perfect places to explore the landscapes, seascapes, and heritage of beautiful West Cork. Each island is quite different in character from the next.
Heir, Bere, Sherkin, Whiddy, Dursey, Long, and Garnish islands offer fantastic activities and intriguing histories.
But shaped by the Atlantic waves and their unique island histories, they are fascinating places to experience the exhilarating power of the Wild Atlantic Way.
