Clonakilty is well worth a visit if you find yourself in West Cork. There is the stunning Inchadonney beach, De Barras pub famous for its musical events as well as the friendliness and generosity of the local people. The wild Atlantic way stunning scenery and fabulous food. How could you go wrong?

Though I haven't seen all the animals of Jungle City, I must say it's a nice suprise to bump into a green elephant behind the pub or a flowered tiger on the street. I imagine it would be excellent for children to go and find them all. A very nice addition to Clonakilty.

Whatever it was must have either been temporary or fixed completely. Clonakilty is a lovely colourful town with hanging flowers on lots of the restaurants and bars. Very enjoyable for a stroll around and so... More

It was so over powering you could not sleep at night and breathe by day. We walked out towards the beach (inchydoney) the tide was out and... More
