2001-06-09: Sheep's Head Peninsula

We left Mizen Head and followed the coastal road along the northern shore of the peninsula to Durrus where we had dinner at Ivo’s (delicious wild salmon). After dinner, we followed the coastal road along the southern shore of Sheep’s Head Peninsula.

The road ended about a mile from Sheep’s Head, the western-most tip of the peninsula and we walked the trail out to the head.

The following is the automated light house at Sheep’s Head.

After we returned to the car park at about 6pm, the lady running the small coffee shop at the trailhead asked us for a ride to her home a few miles up the road. Of course, we obliged and even got a free cup of tea and a scone with butter and strawberry jam. Shortly before we were to take off, her husband arrived to take her home, so we were out of the job. We followed the coastal road along the northern shore of the peninsula, eventually taking us into Bantry.
