Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea and the Dursey Island

In response to weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post

Last Tuesday I visited the beautiful Dursey Island, a small island in West Cork, Ireland.

You have to use the cable car to get over. The only cable car in Ireland and the only cable car over open water in Europe. It takes about 10 minutes.

There you can choose either mountain walk or low walk. I recommend to start with the mountain walk, it is not the toughest trek out there but I wish we would start with it and get back via the low walk rather then the other way around.

You meet various inhabitants on the island…

There are some people living there as well, we met a 90 year old lady driving around on a car with no plates(no picture, hopefully she was real). It was also the first time I have seen dog looking after sheep outside of TV.

It takes about 2 hours from one end the the other but  the view is worth it.

Definitely worth a visit.

  1. What a beautiful place. So unique with the sheep etc, and the rocky beauty. I have a visit to Ireland on my Bucket list, now I will have to visit this place when I come. It looks right up my alley, a long walk with wonderful views of the sea. That to me is perfection.

    1. If that is the case, you will love it. But there are many beautiful places in Ireland for walks and sea view. I can recommend some when you decide to come…

  2. What a beautiful view of the countryside and coastline…sweet
