Think Brendan Voyage
Sep. 2020
I wanted to visit here to see where Tim Severin set off in his leather boat so many years ago. Very picturesque.

Great place to swim
Sep. 2020
Great place to swim - this is a lovely spot to see and to swim - take the time to go here. You can park easily by the pier and hop into the sea from there.

Should be as famous as Cobh
Feb. 2020
St. Brandon sailed to North America and back in the 600's, centuries prior to the Vikiings, and this should be widely known history. Brandon's Creek is where his ship was built and launched.

This tiny, rough harbor is hard to reach, you need a guide and a nimble car (no big bus is going to fit!) to see it. There is nothing touristy here at all, and if the waves are large then don't go down to the bottom lest you be launched towards N. America yourself!

Recommended for historians, seafarers and odd wanderers, not the average tourist.

Great walk, lovely views
Jun. 2019
We had a lovely walk (30 km) and enjoyed the scenery and views. Stopped for birdwatching and tea. Regret that we were too late for the boattrip, but that's for next year!

Very evocative
Jul. 2019
Very evocative, a narrow opening in the cliffs, leading to a protected creek, from where St Brendan would have left for his legendary trip westwards. Nice to see if you have the time. You can walk down to the small pebble beach.

Small and quiet
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Just a small creek but beautiful location that was clean and litter free. Nice relaxing spot for quiet meditation.

Great Stop that the Tour Buses may not make!
May 2019 • Solo
I was told about this stop along the Slea Head drive by a great bartender at the Dingle Bay Hotel! I rented a car and drove around the peninsula without a guide. I thought this was a much better experience than going on a tour bus because I could stop wherever and whenever I wanted. This was one of my favorite stops on the drive and I am not sure that many of the tour buses stop here. It is very scenic and I enjoyed researching the story of St. Brandon and the sites association to that story!

Saint Brandon
Jun. 2019 • Friends
A beautiful little cove, supposedly this is where Saint Brandon left on a 7 year trip to find the nearest continent to the west. Supposedly he did discover North America hundreds of years before Christopher Columbus. There goes Columbus Day.

Dramatic gushing sea
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Beautiful bay with lots of dramatic waves. Nice walk down to the pier but best views are from the start of the path down.
