A lovely part of the world to see especially of you are lucky enough to get some sunshine. Just get in the car and go and see it. You won't be sorry. And when you finish drive on out to Keem beach.

The beach is amazing, nestled in the valley, near the highest cliffs in Ireland. Blue flag quality, lifeguards, a van to get a 99, really good. Water is cold, but people are swimming the whole time.
