Dursey Island is a small island just off the end of the Beara Peninsula in south west Ireland, it is joined to the mainland with a cable car, the only cable car in Ireland. Here lots of photos and photography of the island.
Dursey Festival 2015 a well organised weekend but unfortunately let down by the cable car running on Winter hours. Hundreds were turned away from the island. Which was a great shame as there was plenty to do and see on the Island. Even the mayor of Cork made it over and was almost stuck on the island. The cable car is Ireland’s only cable car and as such is a big tourist draw to the area. Which is well in need of visitors. In any case those that made it had a great time and there were quite a few people sleeping over on the Saturday night. Thanks to the Islanders for their hospitality.
Visit Dursey Island with “An Postman Pat”. Across the Dursey sound in Ireland’s only cable car. Which is the only cable car in Europe crossing open water. On his three times a week trip delivering letters to the islanders for the past 37 years. All year around Pat Neill delivers the post to the islanders in his special van. A trip to Dursey Island is a great thing to be doing. In the summer there is even a bus which can take you from the cable car to the west end. Pat gives us a great insight into Dursey Island.

Crows Head Crossing, re-enacting the crossing of the 60’s that Tadhg Roger O’Sullivan used to do to put sheep on to graze the 8 acres of grass on the island at the end of Crows head. The Lehanmore Community Centre had the idea to commemorate the crossing and contacted Kerry Mountain rescue team to see if they would like to help. They in turn asked the Castletownbere Coast Guard and RNLI to come along and make it a joint effort. The Kerry Mountain Rescue team did a great job setting up the “cables” and four or five people were taken across and back again. A large crowd turned up to watch and fun was had by all. The evening talk in the Community centre was very entertaining. I would just like to say thanks to all concerned and especially Lehanomre Community Centre and its team who pushed it on.
