Clonakilty has been designated as West Cork's Heritage Town by Board Failte, and a visit to the town soon shows why. You'll feel at home here among the attractive traditional shop fronts and hand painted signs in English and Irish. The Post Office is housed in an old Presbyterian church and the Town Council and Library in a converted Corn Mill with the river flowing beneath. Narrow streets and lanes open into elegant squares. It is a town of tall spires, towers and historic buildings - the brewery buildings, the mills and the quayside warehouses, telling of the town's busy trading and industrial past. Clonakilty is an ideal holiday destination and base from which to tour West Cork, a region blessed with some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery.
While Clon.ie does contain much information of interest to tourists it is community site rather than a tourist orientated site and below you will find a list of other sites which contain further information of interest to tourists.
