A colourful seaside town with miles of sandy beaches on the N71, Clonakilty was founded by Richard Boyle and is a Bord Failte designated Heritage town. The West Cork Regional Museum is located here and offers a wonderful insight into the fascinating history of this picturesque town.

Clonakilty is well served by buses from Cork and is easily found by following the main N71 from Cork, however, if time allows, take the superb coast road route, taking in Timoleague and Courtmacsherry. The scenery is spectacular and the area along the way is steeped in history including some stone circle monuments probably dating back to the earliest Bronze Age settlers.

The population is approximately 2,700. The environs of the town are mostly concerned with agriculture, and there is a thriving tourist industry and many light industrial operations in the town itself. Clonakilty also has the only model village in Ireland.
