Dursey Road

Dursey Road

Dursey Road is the only road in the Dursey Island, at the southwestern tip of the Beara Peninsula in the west of County Cork in Ireland. The road is 5.3 km long.

This gravel, steep and narrow road runs most of the way along the southern side of the island. This peaceful island, with only a handful of permanent residents, is connected to the mainland by Ireland's only cable car.

The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! Dolphins and whales are regular visitors to the rich waters that surround Dursey, in addition to a wide range of different types of seabirds and butterflies. Dursey, which is only 6.5km long and 1.5km wide provides the tourist with some lovely walks and breathtaking views of the nearby West Cork coastline.
