Dunquin Harbour (Dún Chaoin in Irish Gaelic) is a small port in County Kerry, famous for its charm and the exceptional view it offers over the bay, and the ocean! The port of departure to reach Blasket Island, the place is magical, and really worth the detour if you are by bike, or by car! Above all, enjoy the view!
The port of Dunquin is far from being large, but is very easily recognizable thanks to its slightly concrete access, in geometrical laces …
Make no mistake: the site is magnificent, but has a real difference in height which can be difficult for walkers to access. Located on the cliffside, the port opens onto a magnificent bay, marked by turquoise blue water and black rocks that emerge on the surface… A spectacle as invigorating as it is exceptional!
Preferably go there in good weather: the view is clearer, and with a bit of luck you will be able to see the Blasket Islands offshore. Another advantage: the site is not too touristy, and you will have the opportunity to sit down and perhaps enjoy a delicious picnic while admiring the view!
Don’t forget your camera: it would prevent you from taking pictures of the surrounding beaches, cliffs, green Irish pastures, and the blue monochrome of the water! A magical site in short!
