Country Matters


The countryside is a national asset and matters immensely. Each and ever one of us is able to take to the country, walk and appreciate nature. The land may on paper belong to named individuals but everyone can take advantage of scenery, woodland walks, rambles and coastal walks without cost.

Mizen Head

Mizen Head on the most south westerly point of Ireland is the Irish equivalent to Land's End in England. People go there because it is an extreme point and for the spectacular sea views. A suspension bridge hangs over a chasm which adds a great deal of excitement to a coastal walk.

There is a lighthouse at this point as one would expect and because of its south westerly location, wild flowers which do not grow anywhere else in Ireland flourish. The public are welcome to visit the lighthouse which now functions as a museum.

Mizen Head is a good observation point for spotting whales and seals offshore.

There is parking for your car.

Good Value self catering

Self catering holidays offer good value because guests provide all of their own food and can cook it in their own kitchens thereby saving on the costs of eating out. The other big saving with self catering is that you keep a stock of drinks and snacks in the cottage. Anyone who has children will appreciate how much money this saves. Keep a stock of small packaged fruit juices for taking with you as part of a picnic on day trips and that will help keep costs down. It is difficult to obtain cheap breaks without compromising on quality - renting self catering accommodation is by far the best method.
