A brilliant place to visit. Scenic, atmospheric and fascinating. There's a great walk to the lighthouse which isn't too far from the cafe at the end and well worth a walk to see if you can spot any whales of dolphins. The journey there (to the cafe) can be taken by car or by walking from different points but if... More

Recently visited this area and drove around the peninsula stopping for coffee en route. We travelled the road facing onto Bantry Bay initially which is just stunning, wild and not overly developed. Stopped for coffee in quaint white washed cottage with wild flower planting and lovely brigh paint work. Wonderful experience. Highly recommend and will be back to do some... More

Sheep's Head is a most beautiful place to do some hill walking. Go out to the very end, park at the car park near a little cafe, and walk 4 km to the lighthouse. A great experience, with great views, and not too many people. All this peninsula is great for walking. Lots of coffee shops on the way.

Very beautiful and free from Tourists. Fantastic to visit and a paradise for walkers. Its is perhaps one of the most undeveloped parts of Ireland. If the weather smile on you it is a fantastic place to visit and walk in.

The Sheep's Head Peninsula is less well-known than its neighbouring peninsulas, but I cannot think why - it is a gorgeous unspoilt paradise of a place, relatively un-touristy, on a small intimate scale, with stunning scenery, friendly locals and a few exceptional quirky little pubs and good places to eat. Whether you do the loop walks, or get lost down... More

The Sheepshead Peninsula is wonderful. The scenery is breathtaking and one can walk right out to the headland and sit on a rock and look out at the sparkling Atlantic while seabirds float on updrafts.
