13 Instagrams that prove why Clonakilty was named the best town in Ireland

Feckin’ gorgeous!

LAST NIGHT, CLONAKILTY in Co Cork was named the best town in the UK and Ireland at this year’s Urbanism Awards. And why is that? Well, this might answer your questions.

Clonakilty is just storybook beautiful

The greens are greener, and the blues are bluer

The streets mix the old…

…With the new

And there’s just the right amount of whimsy

A full-scale, handmade model of the old West Cork railway line is a main tourist attraction. Adorable.

There’s the stunning Inchydoney Beach

Plenty of places to explore

And the most photographed sign in Ireland

Not forgetting the craic

It’s mighty, of course

So come for the rolling hills

And stay for the pud

Of course. Clonakilty, you beaut.
