‘Little Island View' is located in the picturesque Dursey Island (6.5km by 1.5km) which is based in the south western tip of West Cork. It is a geological and geographical seaward extension of the sand stone mountains of the Beara peninsula. The island is seperated from the mainland by a narrow stretch of water called the Dursey Sound. The island's only connection to the mainland is via Ireland's only Cable Car.

The island is ideal for walkers, birdwatchers, anglers and historians. Dursey is famous for its magnificent selection of bird sprcies and is a birdwatchers' heaven.
