West Cork

Enjoy wonderful wildlife and scenery in a beautiful part of Ireland.

Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, and in particular the rugged coastline of West Cork, allows visitors the chance to experience the thrill of seeing local wildlife in a truly fabulous setting.  Spot magnificent whales, playful dolphins and cute seals plus many seabirds and the small, fascinating creatures that make the seashore their home: this is an Irish wildlife holiday with a difference.

With six nights in the attractive coastal village of Baltimore, you will have plenty of time to enjoy wildlife-spotting with expert guides, whilst also taking time to relax and explore some of the quaint villages, quirky craft shops and friendly bars and restaurants dotting the beautiful coastline of West Cork.   This is where the Irish themselves like to holiday – but they don’t mind sharing the secret!
