From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

1. From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

Immerse yourself in Irish culture on this day trip filled with fantastic photo opportunities. Starting in the historic city of Cork, travel by coach to Ireland’s most southwesterly point and view the dramatic cliff scenery of Mizen Head. As you drive through picturesque villages and towns, expect to see some awe-inspiring scenery as Ireland shows off its spectacular landscape. From the meeting point in Cork, travel first to Gougane Barra, home to Ireland's oldest National Forest Park and famous for St. Finbarr's Oratory, its stunning 19th-century church. Enjoy panoramic views of where the River Lee rises. Then, wander through Bantry, one of West Cork's most vibrant market towns, and do some shopping or sit down to a traditional cup of Irish tea and perhaps a scone. The next part of the journey takes you to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most southwesterly point — the edge of Europe and a signature key discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. Admire the cliffs of Mizen Head that rise high above the Atlantic Ocean, where the currents meet and the waves from the Atlantic crash into land. Before returning to Cork city, discover Clonakilty, an iconic Irish town. Visit a museum, an Irish pub for a pint of Murphy's, or simply wander the colorful streets. You'll return to the city of Cork in the evening, where you'll be dropped off at the original meeting point.

This is an ideal tour for those who want to see some of the less common tourist spots of Ireland. As someone who lives in Ireland, it’s also a great way to see a few new spots to plan for future weekends. (I can’t wait to go back to Clonakilty for a weekend.) Our driver was fabulous, entertaining and worked really hard to offer choice and flexibility for picture spots. He was an absolute fountain of knowledge about history, agriculture and the towns. Our group was respectful of sticking to the schedule which meant we could make it to the next stop faster and spend those saved minutes at the next spot.

Really great tour! Everything went very smoothly - thought there was plenty of time spent at each place, it didn't feel super rushed. Most of the time is spent at Mizen Head, with short stops at the other locations so plan on eating lunch at Mizen with only tea breaks at Bantry/Clonakilty. Enjoyed the guides commentary along the way. Definitely worth doing as a day tour, wouldn't want to drive those roads myself!

It was absolutely brilliant the tour guide was very accommodating and friendly and his very good we can understand what he says regarding the history his so good and we had a great time and we really enjoyed it and thank you so much definitely recommended its a five star

Great trip. Mizen head is wonderful. Amazing place. Not to be missed. Plenty to see on the way there and back. Guide Michael was making a great effort to make our bus trip interesting with factual information as well as jokes and personal comments.

Very enjoyable trip, driver was very funny, kept us entertained. All the towns we stopped at were beautifully kept.
