Go on, get out there!
Get out onto West Cork’s active islands to take part in the fantastic outdoor activities on offer. Check our our West Cork island walks, join us for an island parkrun, or refresh your senses at an island yoga retreat. And of course, the islands are the perfect place to learn to sail on West Cork’s pristine bays.
Arts & Culture on the West Cork Islands
The West Cork islands inspire creativity! Sherkin Island is renowned as the island of the arts and its a pleasure to take a stroll across the island to visit artists in their studios. The West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival travels across the islands each summer putting on outdoor performances that are a pleasure to behold.
