Welcome to The Sheep's Head Way
Enjoy a holiday on Sheep’s Head - it is a peaceful, unspoilt peninsula which has some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Ireland. Because of our proximity to the Gulf Stream, we also have perhaps the mildest climate in Ireland - our daffodils are usually out in January!

St. Stephen's Day Walk on The Sheep's Head
The Day started off dry and windy and it held off until about 2pm, on the return leg of our journey home on the ‘A’ walk. We all got a good wetting!, just under 90 people in total took part in the Annual St. Stephen’s Day Walk which was organized this year by The Sheep’s Head Sea Scouts and Muintir Bhaire Foróige club. There was a choice of an ‘A’ Walk for more experienced walkers and a ‘B’ walk for less experienced walkers, over 30 people participated in the ‘A’ walk. Walking conditions were wet and mucky in places but the fresh air and exercise did everyone good. Hot soup and tasty sandwiches were served after in Arundel's by the Pier by The Sheep’s Head Sea Scouts and Muintir Bhaire Foróige club who thanked all who supported the walk. A Happy New Year to all.
