Peadar Lowney – Castletownbere, West Cork.

My perfect day would start with a walk from the castle at Dunboy, up into the woods to the harbour mouth to where you can sit on a rock looking out across to the Ardnakinna Lighthouse on Bere Island, watching gulls, seals and ships passing in and out. Further south you can see Mizen and Sheep’s Head and on a fine evening the Fastnet Lighthouse comes into view. To the south west are the Piper Rocks and the Black Ball Headland.

After that the day can’t go wrong as I head home for breakfast. Later I might stroll along the pier watching the fishermen mending their nets. Lunch could be in one of the local restaurants followed by a few pints in O Shea’s.

In summer I’d travel further afield, heading out to Allihies or on to Ardgroom to walk from the village up to Glenbeg lake, the sister lake to Glanmore lake on the Healy Pass. Time passes and I’m still discovering new places to visit on the peninsula.’
