We will pick you up at our designated pick-up point and travel towards West Cork with comfort stops en-route making our way to our first stop in Kinsale – “Ireland’s Riviera” arriving at approximately 13.00hrs. Here you will have a little free time to explore this busy town - you can enjoy browsing in its many shops for gifts, crafts, paintings, locally designed fashions, art galleries, book shops or you can take time out in one of its many lovely cafés for lunch or coffee and cakes. We will depart Kinsale at about 14.30hrs and move on to Clonakilty, one of Ireland’s best-known tourist destinations boasting some excellent historic and heritage attractions. Here we will visit the Model Village – a wonderful trip back in time to the 1940’s where the West Cork Railway Line was at the heart of the many communities who lived and worked along the line. Afterwards you will have a little free time to wander around the town yourself and perhaps explore some of the long list of restaurants, cafes and bars, all serving the very best of what West Cork has to offer. We will depart Clonakilty and make our way to Bantry to our hotel for the first of our 2 nights. (D, B&B)

There are spectacular views on the Bridge and at the end of the peninsula and the houses have been equipped with an audio-visual room, a map and archive room; the Keeper's kitchen and bedroom have been retained and there is a bird and sea watch room. There is also a café and gift shop and there are displays on the Fastnet Lighthouse the Geology of Mizen and a Navigational Simulator showing Mizen Head from the sea.
