Most Westerly point on mainland Ireland.
by TommyV  6 Jul 2023
Dunmore head on the tip of the Dingle peninsula offers great views due to its location. There is a car park at V31165 98175 starA and trail leading to the summit of the hill. As the walk is a short one it's worth extending it by heading down to the Western side of the hill to reach the most Westerly point on mainland Ireland.
