West Cork Business Network
The inspiration for West Cork Business Network came from Caroline Crowley. Caroline relocated from North London to Clonakilty in 2014 to set up a new business in Bandon.
“A few months after arriving back to Irish soil I bought a house in Clonakilty and needed reliable local tradespeople to help me with the house and also local business contacts to support me in setting up and running a business from West Cork. I struggled to find all these contacts and felt a local business directory would be a useful resource for individuals relocating to Ireland from overseas or for local people looking for professionals or simply looking for the best place to get a coffee. With West Cork Business Network (WCB) whether you need photographers in Cork , cafes in Kinsale or phone repairs in Clonakilty ,WCB has it all at your fingertips.”
I feel there is a great loyalty in West Cork. The local community want to support local businesses especially in light of recent events which saw Bandon being devastated by flooding. This directory gives those locals the opportunity to find and contact local businesses in their area.
For ex-pats West Cork has a lot to offer. It is great place to raise kids, start a business, buy property, enjoy a holiday or simply kick back and retire. Kinsale is the gourmet capital, Schull and Baltimore appeal for their sailing, Bandon the gateway to West Cork while a town like Clonakilty is unique because of its beautiful beaches. West Cork is also perfectly placed for commuters working in Cork city or those needing access to Cork airport. West Cork offers the best of both worlds with peace and quiet during the winter and a great buzz during the summer, plus beautiful scenery year round with the Wild Atlantic Way passing through our doorstep.
Caroline’s own business CPC Outsourcing has won numerous business awards and she is now determined to bring West Cork to the global market. CPC Outsourcing offers outsourced business support services including tax, marketing and mentoring to allow businesses to concentrate on what they do best and outsource the rest. CPC Outsourcing operates from Bandon, which many say is the gateway to West Cork, and exports processed services to the UK, Europe and the US.
West Cork Business Network aims to allow their members to build relationships and forge connections which allows their business grow from strength to strength.
