Well Worth a Trip
by Pepe 11 Jul 2022
Visited this yesterday, a stunning day with great views of the Knockmealdowns, Comeraghs and Galtees from the top of the island. Great coastal views too of course from the Old Head to Mine Head. The trip takes about 90 minutes - a half hour there and back on the water and an hour's guided tour on the island. Need to book online if it's a nice day though - we hadn't booked but got lucky with two cancellations. Linkback:
