The land ends at the Dursey Sound, where you’ll find Ireland’s only cable car sitting high above the sea: the only way to cross to Dursey Island.
A short 10 minute ride will carry you over the waves, and if you like peace and quiet you’ll love Dursey Island, which is free of shops, pubs, and restaurants. In fact it only has 6 or so permanent wintertime residents, including 3 families who live and farm on this tiny island.
There’s a lighthouse, castle ruins, a signal tower, standing stones and the most breath-taking sunsets, locally known as ‘Europe’s last’. But please take note when using the cable car: residents of this small corner of the world have priority over visitors when queuing for the crossing.
