The County Cork region
County Cork is located in the South West of Ireland and it is the largest of all the Irish counties and in many ways the most varied.
Rich farmlands and river valleys contrast with the wild sandstone hills of the west, and above all there is the beautiful Atlantic coastline with its great bays and secret coves, distributed with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands.
