South West Cork, Ireland: Long Weekend Exploring Part 3 Of 3

The next day we were off down the coast. Dotted with quaint little towns, green pastures, stone walls and rough seas – it was the most gorgeous drive.

A quick stop at BUDDs, an Australian run cafe selling great coffee.

We made our way to Mizen Head, Irelands most South-Westerly point. Sadly the weather was too bad to walk to the end- check out what it looks like here! Amazing.

On our way back we stopped at this cool little village, Schull.

Then we got caught in a little hail shower- so we popped into the nearest pub, as you do, and sampled this amazing Devilled Crap Dish! YUM!

Picked up some scallop shells in the harbour. Driving home the next day we drove through the beautiful town of Timoleague. In Ireland there are the most beautiful ruins all over the show, but this 13th century Abbey was rather enchanting.

Swans on our way out. Then Kinsale is a must – like a little Irish Monaco 🙂 A vibrant sailing town surrounded by a beautiful coast and countryside.
