Located in the extreme south west of Ireland, adjacent to the designated “Gateway” of Cork city, the region is a diverse rural area of some 3,200 km2. Comprised of a distinctive natural area of development, it includes the entire electoral areas of Bandon, Skibbereen, Bantry and parts of the Macroom electoral area.

The West Cork region is bounded on its eastern periphery by the town of Carrigaline and Cork harbour, and by over 550km of highly indented coastline to the south. The boundaries of the region to the west and north are contiguous with those of the neighbouring Local Action Groups, South Kerry Partnership Ltd, Comhdháil Oileáin na hÉireann, IRD Duhallow Ltd, Meitheal Forbatha na Gaeltachta Teo, South East Cork Area Development and Blackwater Resource Development Ltd.

94 of the area’s district electoral divisions (66% of the area total) comprise the CLAR designated region within West Cork. With some minor exceptions, these district electoral divisions form an unbroken land mass west of the towns of Macroom and Clonakilty. You can view a full list of DEDs below.
