Getting Oriented

After exploring the delights of Cork City, use it as a base to explore the county's famed wonders, including Blarney Castle. Embark on a gastronomic adventure by traveling east to Midleton and Shanagarry—famed respectively for their whiskey and culinary traditions. Shanagarry, in rich farming country, also has a local tradition of craft pottery. Due south is fashionable Kinsale, while westward lies Skibbereen and picture-perfect Bantry. From here a cliff-top road with stunning views leads to ruggedly beautiful Glengarriff.
