The area is marketed to tourists for its rugged peninsulas (such as the remote Beara Peninsula, Sheep's Head and Mizen Head peninsulas), beaches such as Inchydoney, Owenahincha and Barleycove, Garrettstown, Garrylucas and towns and villages such as Skibbereen, Clonakilty, Kinsale and Rosscarbery, Bantry, Bandon and Castletownbear. The area of West Cork is not strictly defined, but at its broadest definition it includes all parts of County Cork south and west of the River Lee with the exception of Cork city and suburbs. Road signs may be found around Cork city and elsewhere directing traffic for "The West", or "West Cork".
