This is it!
One of those places you can call the end of the world!
Discovered by Guy a while ago, he told me about it and then we decided for a one day trip first to see how and what. It was love at first sight!
About a month later we went on a little summer trip to this really wild place in Donegal county. Part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way, as the whole coast, Muckross Head is a …like the name says a “head”, a place of live geology lessons. This landscape is not unique for Ireland, the coast is filled with peninsulas due to high erosion coming from the Atlantic.
What happened here is that the sea-cliff is situated above a partly tidal rock platform, the erosion of both sandstones and schist facilitate this. I guess more than walkers the place is popular with climbers due to the overhanging nature of the cliff and the possibilities offered. A whole guide here.
The beach is popular with surfers and it’s enclosed by land, absolutely divine. The peninsula has a typical wild Irish landscape…green grass and sheep. Rarely, houses!
