Cork. MIZEN HEAD, peninsula, County Cork

Mizen Head, Southern Tip, Ireland

This is the most southwesterly point of Ireland, on a peninsula. Find a light signal station and displays here, sea caves, waterspouts,
see http://www.myguideireland.com/mizen-head/

This would have been the last sighting of land for Irish immigrants heading to America.  The walk to the observation area passes sites for varied flowers, whale-sightings, dolphins, see http://www.mizenhead.net/

Get to the farthest-out points in a country, as far as you can get - we aim for the extremes: see John O'Groats in Scotland, and Land's End in England. And Gdynia, Poland. Sapanta, Romania.
