Fabulous way marked walks, unspoilt, welcoming although says no dogs on all footpaths. Eileen's bar has music nights and the post office in Kilcrohane is well worth a visit. Walk to the top of Seefin and see the Beara and Mizen head peninsulas

Part of the 2.5k Wild Atlantic coastal route on Ireland's West Coast...drove from Durrus along the peninsular taking in the spectacular views. Stop for lunch at Kilcrohane and then onto the lighthouse and a stroll along the coastal path. Plenty of walks along the way and need to return to take a longer route. Really great photo oportunity for some... More

Great place to visit, we spent the whole day hicking. Parked the car not far from the Car Park and walked all the way to the lighthouse, afterwards returning through a round route back to the car park. If you can get there on a nice sunny day, youll definetly enjoy the views and the peace.

Sheep's Head is a European Destination of Excellence and it's easy to see why - the perfect place to get away from it all - stunning scenery with fantastic walking & cycling, unspoilt landscape, lovely people & great food. I can't wait to go back.

We drove round this peninsula while staying in Bantry. The roads were quiet and the scenery was great - more rugged that Ring of Kerry. Good views across to the peninsulas either side.

The Sheepshead Peninsula is part of the Wild Atlantic Coast drive which hugs the whole of Irelands breathtaking coast. It's hiker's heaven & on a sunny day it's glorious. If you aren't up to the walking then there is a road which takes you round the way, but driving (or walking) aren't for the faint-hearted! Be prepared to go very... More

Amazing views, hikes, ancient sites. There was nothing I disliked. I just followed my nose and found the most amazing sites.

Stunning scenery, the walk to ourselves, taking time out from the noise of life and just enjoying the beauty of nature.

This area has a feeling of remoteness yet there are plenty of pubs, cafes, restauarants and friendly people to break up the dramatic coastal drive.
