We drove down to the point and then walked to the very tip of the peninsular. The sun shone and we sat on the cliffs watching all the seabirds whizz round the point below us.

Breathtaking scenery in a stunning location, the walk is about 2.5km and takes you out to the lighthouse, there is a little cafe , tea room at the start of the walk, hot an easy trek for older people

Walking the Sheep's Head Way was amazing! The landscapes were incredible. However, the timings for each part of the walk (advised by the guide) are underestimated (e.g.: 6 hours instead of 4), which was problematic as we had already booked bus tickets). Next time, we'll try to be more flexible on our schedule. Another remark is the quality of the... More

Just breathtaking! People were so friendly, and could not stop wishing I lived there. It was a great hike to the lighthouse-had scones with jam and salmon sandwiches waiting for us as one of our travelers could not hike and chose to wait and have lunch waiting for us- truly a spectacular day!

Took a spin down from the Armagh/Louth border & rented a house with family just outside Ahakista. I had initially wondered what on earth made my sister-in-law chose somewhere so far away with nothing to do.... How wrong was I! Stunning scenery, full of lovely walks, drives and the perfect place to relax. As a family we took a drive... More

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
