Stunning views and gorgeous scenery. Heron's Gallery a must for delicious lunch and divine cakes set in the prettiest, and spacious garden. The Tin Pub is a five minute stroll behind which is the quaintest road down to Ahakista beach. Enchanting place
I know Sheep's Head fairly well as I have walked there many times. There is a really helpful booklet and mapwith lots of interesting and amusing information. Not a huge amount in the way of B&Bs to stay in outside if the villages of Durrus, Ahakista and Kilcrohane. Great pub called Eileen's in Kilcrohane and a nice cafe and gallery...
This area is great for walking, with great scenery 360°. We did an easy 4 hour looped walk including a break at the cafe and a potter around the lighthouse. The lighthouse is small but well situated.
There are views of the Beara peninsula to the west and Mizen to the east.
We parked at a car park about 3...
We hiked on part of the Sheepshead way as part of a walking tour. We started in fog and light rain, but things cleared and the views of the ocean and surrounding countryside were lovely. On parts of the trail the way is rather boggy, so if you are going to try this you would want to have waterproof boots...
stunning scenery. unspoilt beauty .found a brilliant craft shop with a really nice lady owner.
unfortunately the mist came down as we got to the light house and we didnt get to see it ,but the cafe in the car park on the way down to the lighthouse was great
Recent bus tour of west Cork included the peninsula. This is a beautiful part of Ireland and I would recommend spending some time there. There are many little attractions in the towns along with small shops, restaurants and hotels. Looks like a good place to take a quiet vacation
Your tour of Ireland isn't complete without a good view of Sheep's Head Peninsula. The stunning views won't disappoint. While in the area, include a tour of the Bantry House & Gardens and you will be doing an Irish jig in no time.
