WEll worth the drive through Schull and Goleen. Great views and a magnificent vista when you walk down to the Mizen itself. The visitor Centre is quite good but could be developed further. Nice Coffee Shop and pleasant staff.

Absolutely stunning views and walk! A bit of a trek but so worth it. €7.50 entry fee which gets you entry into the information centre which isn’t great and onto the actual most southwesterly viewing point in Ireland. You won’t miss much If you didn’t...More
