West Cork is a place apart. It has a mild climate – an ideal place to rear a family. It is also very private with great beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs.
The surrounding coastal villages are quaint and unspoilt, with a wide range of water sports readily available.
Overseas purchasers especially from the United Kingdom are continuing to be enticed to West Cork by the attractions of glorious sea views, rural tranquility – and greatly reduced prices.
West Cork is almost a global brand, promoting its food, its relaxed way of life, walks and breath-taking vistas.
Apart from its indigenous strengths for local and Irish buyers, it has also had a draw for Europeans for several decades, and it’s as multi-cultural a spot as you’ll find anywhere on the island of Ireland.
