Stunning scenery and solitude. Doesn't get much better than this. Try being there for a sunrise or stick around for a sunset to get the best effects.

My wife and family- our two adult children and our son-in-law- vacationed in Ireland in September, staying in Killybegs and then touring the area. We noticed St. John’s Point on the map and decided to take a drive out to the end of the peninsula. We took a road south out of Dunkineely and drove about six miles. Then we came to rather large cove where we parked the cars and walked along the beach. We were entertained by a man walking his dog and throwing a ball into the water for the dog to retrieve. Then we hiked the trail that led to the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. It was a quite a hike and no bathrooms [keep that in mind]. Along the way, there was a lookout post from the World War II era. The lighthouse complex is at the end of the trail but step around a fence post and carefully walk through the pasture, heading south towards the water. The scenery at the end of the peninsula was spectacular! Please enjoy the pictures.
Oh, there is also an ancient ring fort that you can just see from the beach I mentioned when you look west. You can walk up there although you should get the permission of the landowner. There is also a castle in ruins on the west side as you drive back towards town.
This is a hidden treat- I note it has not yet been reviewed as an “attraction” by Trip Advisor members although it has been mentioned in some B & B reviews. I truly hope others take the drive- and the walk- and get to enjoy this special place. I invite the first one to read this review and then visit St. John’s Point to send me a note about your experience.
