West Cork picnics

There is nothing better than al fresco dining with your nearest and dearest.  Ireland’s weather may not always give us the opportunity to relax outdoors, but when it does there is no better place to be! From Kinsale town to Ireland’s most southerly point Mizen head, West Cork is brimming with beautiful spots to lay your picnic blanket in Summer, Autumn and even on a crisp Winters day. So why not pack up your basket and experience one of our picnic paradises below.

  • Inchdoney Beach, Clonakilty
  • Mizen Head
  • The Warren Strand, Rosscarbery
  • Lough Hyne
  • Galley Head

We have also compiled a list of our picnic essentials to help your adventure go as smoothly as possible

  • Rubbish bags (lets keep our paradise tidy!)
  • Sandwiches, salads and nibbles (see below for your Clonakilty recipes)
  • Water, a flask of tea…maybe even some wine and beers 😉
