The Agricultural College adjoins the town of Clonakilty in picturesque West Cork. It is located just off the main Bandon – Clonakilty road. All parts of the country are easily accessible and the college arranges a bus network for students at weekends to service East Cork, North Cork and Kerry. As well as provincial buses and trains.
Clonakilty is well known for its beauty and its hospitality. The area is one of the earliest in the country for grass growth, which allows its farmers to be one of the most competitive in the country. The town itself won the Tidy Towns award in 1999.
