Sixteen out of this world photos that will make you want to move to West Cork

FROM Bantry Bay to to Dursey Island, west Cork has beauty spots galore to offer anyone looking to lose themselves on the southern route of the Wild Atlantic Way. 

In their book, West Cork, A Place Apart, Jo Kerrigan and Richard Mills take readers on a journey through the rural rebel county, from mossy woodland, deserted beaches, isolated castles and state homes to the rugged beauty of the Allihies.

Exploring its hidden gems, the book is part photographic journey, part insider guide from Richard and Jo taking you through the true heart of west Cork. 

With that in mind, we take a look at 16 places to lose yourself completely in west Cork...
