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,

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

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.
