As far South as mainland Ireland goes
by TommyV  30 Oct 2018
Some people mistakenly think the more famous Mizen head is the most Southerly point in Ireland, but it's actually the much lesser visited Brow Head. This is a short walk out to as far south as you can go on the mainland and has some spectacular views, and a dizzy walk to the very edge of Brow head if you are up for it. At the end of the hike it's possible to stroll a few hundred meters to an old signal tower sitting at the summit of the hill at V77746 23803 B. If staying in the area, a pint of stout in O'Sullivans in Crookhaven is a must followed by the Mediterranean fish soup in The Crookhaven Inn.
