What to expect?

Ahakista is a small Irish village located on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula between Durrus and Kilcrohane in County Cork. Located on the seafront, this small coastal village is appreciated for its small deep-water port and the surrounding forests.
The village is charming, even if it is not of great tourist interest apart from its prehistoric stone circle located in the village arge (the Ahakista Circle Stone). The village has a church, 2 irish pubs, 2b&b and some local shops. It is crossed by the Sheep’s Head Way, an 88km circuit that circles the Sheep’s Head Peninsula.

Here you will come across the Air India Crash Memorial, a monument to the 1985 bombing where an Air India plane was hit by a bomb while flying over the west coast of Ireland. No passenger survived.
