Dursey Island & Cable Car
Just off the Beara Peninsula, deep in West Cork lies Dursey Island, home to a handful of semi-permanent residents and frequented by dolphins, whales, and seabirds throughout the year. Accessible to the public via Ireland’s only working Cable Car - The Dursey Island Cable Car, naturally - the island is perfect for a sunny Sunday stroll through rolling hills, along rugged coastlines and for exceptional wildlife viewing. The Cable Car was built, in part at least, due to the turbulent nature of the Dursey Sound, the water body separating Dursey from the mainland. There are no shops, pubs, or restaurants on the island so if you’re planning on wandering, bring a little something to keep your sustenance levels up!
