The remote southwestern tip of the island, in
county Cork, was our destination.
There are three main peninsulas in this part of the island,
and we were located
on the southernmost one, called the Mizen Head.
It's a gorgeous area that
is relatively unknown and untouristed. The geography is rolling
outcrops and green fields. We were on the coast,
situated on a bay. In this
part of Ireland, the land drops down
in very dramatic cliffs to the water below.
