Let’s Go to Dursey Island
There’s a cable car which operates from mainland over a stretch
of treacherous rip tide waters called the Dursey Sound. Dangerous rocks can be seen jutting when the tide is out. Situated on the western tip of the Beara Peninsula at a size of 6.5 km long and 1.5 km wide it makes a perfect place to pack a picnic lunch. There are no places for refreshment otherwise.
The island has a historical significance with place names tracing back to Viking days.
There are no trees on the island for shelter from the elements so hikers must choose a fair day or bring rainwear.
