Both East Cork and West Cork were popular spots at the weekend, including the coast from Crosshaven to Kinsale.

The view from the van on my last night in West Cork. Was eight months waiting for this break. This morning I'm feeling rejuvenated and hugely grateful to be living in dear old Ireland. Back on Radio1 tonight at 8pm.
Have a safe week. pic.twitter.com/0PyM49SRlH

Fish & Chips from Schooner Bar, Ballycotton, to top off a stroll on the Cliff Walk. Thankfully finding a bench to dine at. Hadn't done it before, well worth the day out for those who can travel within Cork County. pic.twitter.com/UaWRF4gamV— Séamus Kearney (@SeamusjKearney) April 25, 2021
