We stayed a week in the area and spent most days walking the coast in the Derryname House location as other coastal walking opportunitys are limited.
Each day was a delight and we became very familier with the many lovely beeches -wild and windswept towards the estuary and compact and sheltered towards Abbet Island. Rough walking on Abbey Island brings spectacular headland views and the Mass walk is a must with flowers on the rocks and a differenet view with every step. The tea rooms at the House sells good home made cakes .
On wet days the little bar just a few yards along the road towards Abbey Island,owned by Bridie and her family for four generations, sells tasty crab sandwiches and has a tiny open fire in the cosy bar, We called in for lunch and a pint every day!
There are three free car parks in the area and many walks from each.

Visited the former home of Daniel O'Connell on a very wet day in May but the weather did not take away from the beautiful scenery and surroundings. The entrance fee to the house was 3.50 euro which I thought was very reasonable, there is a good audio visual presentation on the life of Daniel O'Connell approx. 20 mins duration for those who are not up to speed on who he was/what he achieved. There are only about 5 rooms in the house open for viewing but there is also a lovely little chapel, carriage house and tea rooms. The grounds themselves are worthy of further exploration as there is also the ruins of a summer house and an abbey located on an island near the beach. Situated in the Derrynane National Park, it's perfect for those who just want to amble around and also for the more strenous of walkers. Enjoyed brushing up on my knowledge of Irish historical figures as well. Wear comfortable shoes and come dressed appropriately for irish all-kinds of weather as you could get a shower at any time.
