Discover Ireland's biggest county with a stay in one of our Cork holiday cottages. Expect all sorts of delights from spectacular, rugged coastline and rich, cultural heritage to award-winning, gourmet cuisine.
Activities to see and do from your Cork Cottage
Get the gift of the gab and kiss the 'Stone of Eloquence' at Blarney Castle. Ride Ireland's only cable car at Dursey Island. Admire rare trees and shrubs at the Fota Arboretum. Swap trees for exotic animals at Fota Wildlife Park. Unravel the secret recipe of Jameson Irish Whiskey and tour the Old Midleton Distillery. Gaze into space at the Schull Planetarium. Check out the shops and historic gaol in Cork City. Explore the pretty waterfront town of Kinsale, home to a splendid fort and magnet for foodies, yachties and golfers. And don't miss Mizen Head, a fantastic maritime museum and lighthouse on Ireland's most south-westerly point.
Outdoor activities galore! Canter across sweeping, sandy beaches. Tee off on extremely picturesque fairways. Cycle or walk rugged coastal paths. A Cork holiday home is also an angler's paradise, with shore fishing, game fishing, coarse fishing and deep-sea angling. Add sea kayaking, sailing and diving. Or plan your Cork cottage holiday between June and January for some of Europe's finest whale watching.
Another good reason to stay in this neck of the woods is for a music festival - worthy of a mention are the Cork Jazz Festival, plus the more intimate atmospheres of the Kinsale Fringe Jazz Festival and the West Cork Chamber Music Festival hosted at Bantry House on beautiful Bantry Bay.
