The southermost stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way zigzags gently through County Cork, from dreamy Roaringwater Bat through Skibbereen and on to Kinsale. By hundreds of inlets, coves, safe harbours and white sand beaches just right for long days spent enjoying the sea. Whale watching, diving, snorkeling...a new adventure awaits at the start of each new day.
The first of its kind in Europe, Ireland's coastal waters were declared an official whale and dolphin sanctuary in the 90s. This rich, pristine marine environment attracts not only more than 24 species of cetacean, but also whale watching enthusiasts from all around the world.
