Free mobile app provides guide to West Cork’s stunning walking routes

The Explore West Cork FREE app is available for iPhone and Android and allows users to immediately access up-to-date maps and directions for all walking routes in West Cork.


Many organisations in West Cork have toiled tirelessly to develop stunning walking routes in every area from Kinsale to Beara and this app brings them together for the first time in one place. The maps and directions enable you to easily find your way, while guides to flora, fauna and historical sites bring each walk to life.


West Cork is famed for its dramatic landscape, which includes mountains, valleys and coastline. Such unspoilt beauty means that in some areas users cannot connect to the internet. A huge advantage to the Explore West Cork app is that no coverage is needed.


The app is available for iPhones from the App Store and for Androids from GooglePlay.


Please note your smartphone must have Android version 4 or higher. You will know whether your phone qualifies by visiting GooglePlay – unfortunately if you search for Explore West Cork but can’t see it you have version 3.


This development of this app has been part-funded by the West Cork Development Partnership
