“"down the old goat's path!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2012

It's the only way to motor. The scenic route is always the best route! a few goats or cattle are sure to be looking your way!

“Preparing for the trip to the end if the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

The drive to the peninsula was beautiful with wild West Cork terrain and distant sea views.I never found out why it was called Sheepshead, probably because it had sheep grazing there at some stage or the peninsula is shaped like a sheep's head. Put on a warm jacket if you want to get out and view the wonderful sea sights. and bring along a camera as you will never see such an eyeful again.

This small peninsula has a walking trail which is one of the best in Ireland. There are fantastic sea views with a final walk to the light which is memorable

“Waterproof boots required”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Seriously. Boggy wet. Even in mist and rain the walks are beautiful, well marked and wet. The various spots along the way (Eileens Pub in Kilcrohane) help.

“Stunning view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Beautiful walk with stunning views of the Atlantic. You've got everything there: beautiful lakes, scary cliffs, a poetic lighthouse. I would avoid the coffee shop, I had a hot chocolate that tasted like hot water....
