We spent a great deal of time walking and taking pictures. The clouds sit on top of the mountains, the grass is green and you can often see sheep, cows, horses and lots of ducks.

We parked at the parking lot above Coumeenoole Beach, but instead of walking down to the beach we climbed up the hill to our left and took Dunmore Head Trail. At the start of the trail there’s an honesty box requesting 1 euro per person....More

The beach is just off the Slea Head drive on the Dingle Peninsula, and one of the easiest to get to. Because of this, it’s the most crowded I think. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a nice beach in a great location, but there...More

The beach is a spectacular place -- great views, roaring ocean, cliffs all around you. A little hard to get to -- walk or drive down the very narrow road all the way to the beach. It is not too crowded because of the difficult...More

Ok the drive getting here is a nervous one! It is also beautiful. Lots of pulling over to let others pass. Once you arrive there is a zig zag road to pull over on and park. It was super crowded and nerve wracking however we...More

The hike was an easy 15 minute walk. The only difficult part was figuring out which way to get over the fence without getting caught on your clothes. Walk slow to give the sheep a chance to get off the path.
