Picture huge Atlantic swells smashing like giant grey fists into miles of sheer granite cliffs, right smack in the middle of the Wild Atlantic Way.
At the tip of the peninsula is Loop Head Lighthouse, where you can climb to the top for some spectacular panoramic views from Kerry to the Cliffs of Moher. And if you can’t get enough of this watery windswept retreat, why not stay in the lightkeeper’s house.
This leg of your journey is a great mix of incredible cliff views, fresh local seafood, picture postcard beauty spots and plenty of aquatic activities. Not only did Loop Head become a European Destination of Excellence in aquatic tourism in 2010, but it was also named Best Place to Holiday in Ireland by the Irish Times in 2013.
