The region of West Cork is one of the most popular tourist areas in all of Ireland thanks in large part to its rural beauty, but the towns here are beautiful too, particularly those along the coast.

All of the towns in West Cork are relatively small. They were traditional market towns for farmers and fishermen in their local hinterlands.

Some towns still operate local markets, Bantry being one of the largest markets in West Cork. A busy market town with great shops, restaurants, pubs, schools, churches and a modern hospital makes Bantry an ideal location to rear a family, relocate to or indeed invest in a holiday home.
