Visit Dursey Island

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.

Dursey Island, has plenty of history and natural beauty. The island has a signal tower and the remains of a temporary lighthouse. In the autumn bird watchers come from a far to spot rare birds that land on the island, after days out above the Atlantic ocean.

Goula Beara Cork

Goula Beara Cork, a walk to take some photos and generally enjoy the “360” degree view from the top. Not a bad day in January for a walk. I did not want to drive to Hungry hill so I could save on the petrol, sorry to Paul O’Shea about that. Goula has a great view from the top overlooking Dursey Island. You can also see, Bere Island, Calf Rock, Cow Rock, Bull Rock, the Skelligs, Scariff and Deenish Islands from the top and the town of Castletownbere the biggest white fish port of Ireland. Today was not perfect but for this time of year a nice couple of hours if a bit cold on top, especially when you stop to take photos and make a short film. There is a link at the bottom of this page to the video on youtube….

Allihies was a major copper producer in the 1800’s and for a short while was the worlds largest producer of copper ore. There are many remains of Cornish mine engine buildings, and hundreds of meters of mine adits and shafts. There is also a very good museum. check out the link Allihies copper mine museum
