My 3rd time listening to this! The editing, production and story is thrilling and well investigated. Thank you for keeping Sophie’s memory alive!

Good gathering of facts and stylish spinning of the yard with a good sense of balance. You probably will listen to more than one at a time, as intriguing is the story. How Bailey twists words and downplays his domestic violence is revolting - Thankfully Jules is now free of him. So many people...Read full review »

I thought that only American police are horrible scum but it turns out they are dishonest horrible people everywhere. I don’t understand why reporters still talk to them like everything they say is gospel. These cops are obviously trying to frame this guy. Everything they did in this case was...Read full review »

Great podcast, but it ended up as the Ian Bailey show. Every second relished by the man himself!! I hope that Sophie and her family (specially her son) do get the justice they so richly deserve someday!!

I loved this series so much so I binge listened! Absolutely fascinating..

The podcast hosts I do like very much and I appreciate the way in which they went about the podcast, while slower paced it felt somewhat intimate and I appreciated their mostly unbiased portrayal, honesty and hearing first accounts and from the family. However, Ian Bailey is a pompous...Read full review »

This podcast definitely requires two listens. You get the details first time around then the nuances and tone along with a knowledge of the facts allow you to feel deeper into innocence or guilt. I also feel that Marie Farrell messed up the police investigation though the guard’s have only...Read full review »

Binge-listened the whole series in two days.

Very clearly written and narrated with a balanced delivery. Didn’t want to stop listening. I hope Sophie’s family get closure.

I wanted to like this more than I did. It seemed to go on and on to the point where I thought perhaps it would be a good one to listen to while I am trying to go to sleep at night. At first I was brought in by the lovely accents but that really is about all I got out of the story. It should have...Read full review »

Cant believe they got 13 episodes out of this story. I was recommended to listen to this. I kept waiting for the show to actually get better. It never happened. You’re better off using your time for something else
Tombot82 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/02/21
One of the finest series I’ve listened to. It was like a book one can’t put down. Many thanks. Scintillating story.

Unlike so many podcasts that draw out a story needlessly and waste time on irrelevant details, each episode of West Cork gets to the heart of the story. It paints an unforgettable picture of a place and the people in it.
Canadian Laura-Jean via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/01/21
One of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Excellent production and I wish it hadn’t ended. So much more information revealed than what I read in the newspapers throughout the various trials.
mickeypoos1 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/30/21
Great podcast, extremely well presented. First couple episodes I wasn’t sure but the. I was hooked. Well worth a listen.
mikehart09 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 04/30/21
I’m a true crime junkie, I’ve listened to them all! This one is at the top of the list - thanks guys, please do more!
bowie2015xx via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/30/21
Very thorough research and local input, really enjoyed it
Havetofly via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/30/21
If you enjoy true crime that looks at every possible angle while searching for justice for the victim, this one’s for you.
KQ831 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/21
One of my favorite podcasts of all time, IMO on par with Serial. A deep look at a brutal murder, the horrifyingly captivating suspect, and the culture and country that fueled the fixation on this small town

.
My grandad lives in Lauragh on the Beara Peninsula just a 1 hour drive from Schull. I’m from Holland and love to go to Ireland and especially the South West. I asked him about the crime and he still remember. After listening to the podcast I’m looking with different eyes to the remote houses and...Read full review »

Superb Radio
hamletsdilemma via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 04/28/21
This story had me so intrigued that I binged the episodes. The podcast was so well put together, well researched and presented. However, I felt the last few episodes became the Ian Bailey show and often felt like the focal point of the podcast, a beautiful mother who brutally lost her life, often...Read full review »

Really enjoyed this - I can see that these reporters have really gone deep with this. Great - interesting and entertaining too.
Madger Badger via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/28/21
Gripping incisive moving
Butcdsdal via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/27/21
such a well told story, incredible production, tragic for the family and locals that the killer remains at large
Cana Australia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/26/21
Some podcasts just suck you into their world and you yearn for them when not listening. I just loved this deep dive into a tiny town in Ireland. The sounds of the town and the characters that live there were fantastic. Such a melancholy topic but hopeful at the end too.
wmyloy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/26/21
draws the listener in perfectly. Great piece of radio!
CodyJ1982 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/25/21
Loved this podcast so much, well told and fantastic interviews with the people involved

Brilliant!
keeeepwalking via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/23/21
No mention that Sophie rang her best friend Agnes in France (she was supposed to come on holiday with her) and told her that Ian Bailey had tried (in her garden) to get her to listen to his poetry (this ties in with him allegedly calling her in Paris before she travelled over requesting an...Read full review »

Excellent in every way, wonderful storytelling and character building
nothingnotnowhere via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/21/21
I’m Irish myself living in U.K. snd have been transported back into Irish rural ways during this podcast . Excellent production and well worth a listen .
Gillgeordie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/21/21
A very good story I do not believe for one moment that Marie’s Farrell was our that night with a lover she is a person who makes up stories and possible read mills and booms at the time I think she is the one who ruined the entire investigation. I think she may have see Sophie in her shop that...Read full review »

The twists and turns in this series are amazing. Is Ian guilty or not? Sometimes I was sure and other times less so. This is captivating.
Karen MD via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/20/21
A great podcast that’s well produced and beautifully structured.
Olive__Oil via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/20/21
This is how a true crime podcast should be done. The story is superbly told, very detailed but never boring, creates such a great atmosphere. The case is very interesting but the way it’s delivered is what sets this podcast apart.
Graham220 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/19/21
A truly brilliant podcast - so well researched and narrated. A great podcast highly recommend
mibby_56 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/19/21
While the production value is amazing, the story itself isn’t worth the time. It’s too tedious. The narrators haven’t told me why I should care.
Nyxlipso via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/21
The mishandling of the case sadly means justice won’t be done
Travis748 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/21
A very well told story. An in-depth look into something the Irish people only had a glance at from a media perspective. Good to get a broad prospective of the story. Ian Bailey is a crazy, vivacious character. However, the Irish Gardai are a disgrace and have a lot to answer for in the ‘handling’...Read full review »

This podcast was great listening.
MmYy3 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/21
An utter tragedy for all concerned. A woman is battered to death outside her own home and it seems as if she is secondary to the story. How can listeners say it’s a good story - it’s a murder. A child left motherless. His loss is hardly mentioned. Who was the lover of Marie. A policeman -...Read full review »

This podcast gets high marks for production quality and the sincerity of the hosts, but the story itself is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately pointless. Really it’s the story of a narcissist named Ian Bailey. If you’re fine contributing to this blowhard’s self-aggrandizement then listen away....Read full review »
The Ciceronian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
Very sad for the murdered lady’s family and a badly handled case. People’s life’s and faith in ones neighbours have been destroyed. The Garda seem to have developed tunnel vision regarding Ian Bailey Attention should have been focused on all persons “blow-ins” and locals alike.
anniel54 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/21
Absolute best narration. This cannot end it’s just so engrossing. Gotta listen thrice to make sure I’ve taken it all in!
ThetrueBlu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
It’s hard to listen to this without jumping to conclusions. But hearing interviews with one particular person is very damning. That person is fitting a very specific profile.
Tusa1023 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
This one was told so well by all involved. A truly riveting albeit sad and disturbing tale...
Ace :p. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/21
A thorough telling of a very interesting story. Hosts are thoughtful and have great voices. As a Canadian I had never heard about this case before and I enjoyed hearing about the unique setting and characters involved.
oliviaforsyth via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/14/21
As I listened to this carefully researched podcast, I wondered why no follow-up on the cab driver that took Sofia to her home from the airport was interviewed. I suspected him from the beginning.
