Cape Clear Island
Cape Clear Island is Ireland’s most southerly island. It is a 45min boat trip from Baltimore or Schull in West Cork. The island is 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide and has a population of 120 persons. It is a gaeltacht island – the first language is Irish. Because of its southerly position, the climate is milder than mainland Ireland. It is also a noted paradise for bird watchers boasting Ireland’s only manned observatory.
It’s a stunning Island and offers so many great locations it’s hard to list them all here. The Irish know it has a special atmosphere and friendliness that really makes the term ‘a place apart’ ring true.
