Teetering on the edge of the Eurasian landmass, Caherdaniel is situated on the peninsular tip of Ireland’s Southwest Coast. Washed by the expansive unadulterated Atlantic Ocean it is an enchanting and unstained paradise of pristine land, sea and air. To walk about its deserted coastal beaches and flower-decked meadows or to climb up into its wild, heathered glens and rolling mountain heaths is an experience that’s unmatched on mainland Europe.
The area is rich in cultural history too with Derrynane House and National Park, home of Daniel O’Connell The Liberator (1775-1847), and Staigue Fort at Castlecove, probably Ireland’s finest example of a Stone fort. Swimming, diving, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, water-skiing, and of course, sailing are available in the safe enclosed harbour. If you are looking for a holiday that combines the great outdoors with heritage and history then Caherdaniel is the perfect choice for you.
Derrynane Beach close by offers a range of watersports including wind surfing and sailing
