1 Km walk from free Car park at begining of pier
by Fergalh  27 Jul 2022
Short walk along pier past Marina leads to the rock that St. Brendan left from for his voyage to America way back when. A small free theme park is set around this rock and unusually for Kerry the car park and theme park are free to visit. A final point be careful of fishermen casting their lines here Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2382/comment/23594/
