Ireland's westernmost point - Dunmore Head

Travellers challenge Dunmore Head is the westernmost point of mainland Ireland facing the Ocean. This promontory with undulating fields and centuries-old landmarks is situated at the far end of the Dingle peninsula in County Kerry. In between Slea Head and Coumeenoole Bay. From here you have a great view of the Blasket Islands which are the westernmost island group in Ireland. These islands were inhabited by an Irish-speaking community until 1953.

What else is there
Coumeenoole Bay with it’s beautiful beach is right next to it! This small beach is the most western beach of Ireland. There is a car park right next to Slea Head Drive (R559). A nice 2.6 km walk is Dunmore Head Loop trail, located near Ballyferriter.
Look for an Ogham stone, discovered in 1838 and located at the headland’s highest point. It serves as a reminder of Ireland’s age-old pagan ancestry.
Visit Great Blasket Island. Boat trips depart from nearby Dunquin Harbour, Dingle Marina and Ventry Harbour.

Notes
Dunmore Head is situated along the Wild Atlantic Way (WAW), one of the “Great routes” Mostpoints. Considering the whole Irish territory claimed, including islands, the westernmost point would be Tearaght Island (County Kerry). Dunmore Head is where parts of Star Wars: Episode VIII were filmed. Some scenes of the film Ryan’s Daughter (1970) were also filmed here.
