Visit Outside Cork

Dingle Peninsula

The Dingle Peninsula stretches 48 kilometres into the Atlantic Ocean on the south-west coast on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Mount Brandon is located here, Ireland’s second highest peak. The magnificent coastline consists of steep sea-cliffs such as Slea Head, dramatic headlands broken by sandy beaches, with the award-winning beach at Inch in the south. The Blasket Islands lie to the west and the peninsula is dotted with lovely villages.

The Cliffs of Moher

These cliffs are one of Ireland’s most famous sights. They are entirely vertical cliffs, with the Aran Islands nearby. On a clear day, the views are spectacular. The cliffs run along the coast for 14 kilometers. Some of the cliffs reach up to 214 meters high.

Mizen Head

Mizen Head is the most southerly point of Ireland. Walk along the bridge to Mizen head and look out at the Atlantic ocean, keep your eyes peeled as wildlife are commonly seen there- whales, dolphins, seals, etc.
