The most westerly of West Cork’s inhabited islands, Dursey lies across a narrow sound and is a great getaway from the fray of modern living.

This rugged island is accessed via Ireland’s only cable car, which runs about 250m above the sea and takes six people. The journey takes about ten minutes crossing Dursey Sound where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.

The cable-car departs daily year-round from Ballaghboy, on the tip of the Beara peninsula.
