Goleen is a pretty village in a loverly setting on the road to Mizen Head, where the Mizen Vision project is worth daring to cross the lofty bridge to the former lighthouse keepers' quarters. Barleycove beach is one of the finest in all Ireland and, notfar away, is the laid back ambience of Crookhaven village. Coming back from the Mizen, it is worth turning off for Durrus to travel along the southern shore of Dunmanus Bay. There, one may head straight for Bantry or take the scenic route back through Ahakista and Kilcrohane, via Sheep's Head Peninsula.
