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!
