Loved everything. Great walking area, fantastic photos and sad to see all the old ruins of virtually groups of family homes. But new homes being built even though it seems remote.

Every twist and turn of The Sheepshead Peninsular brings another fantastic view of hills - mountains - waterways and islands -even if you are going by foot- it's a real feast for the eyes!!! We didn't see it all on this trip so will have to return.

If you are in the area you must drive up Sheep's Head and see the beautiful views. Also the Air India Memorial is beautiful with a lovely garden of flowers I have never even seen before. Just a stunning part of Ireland.

Spectacular views and a lovely walk to the lighthouse - bit far for small children though. Well worth the effort!

Rugged terrains, well marked, a bit challenging but rewarded with the scenery. Our reward was the lovely cupan tae in the little cafe at the tip of Sheep's Head. The lady running the cafe serves really good, fresh sandwiches , homemade variety of cakes and fresh scones with jam and cream. Delicious! Toilets here too were spotlessly clean ,

Great wiggly trail through the hills to the lighthouse and Atlantic ocean. Watch your footing if the trail is wet.
