I had read that the Cable car was closing on April 1st. I knew I had to go, as I just know the new version due in November will have none of the creaking, lurching, rubbing shoulders with like minded souls that the current cabin has. I was not disappointed! The lady running the show was helpful, friendly and an icon of hospitality,
On the island we walked the 7km road to the end and came back on the hilly path via the Signal Tower.
You can keep your Greek islands, your Caribbean islands, your Canary Islands...this walk is the most stunning, most beautiful, more peaceful, that I have ever done . The scenery, the sea, the views...all amazing.
Its so good I am going back next week, for another spin and walk before that old cabin is gone forever.
Ireland at its very best.

This is an old cable car & the only one in Ireland. It travels many metres above the sea over the sound across to Dursey Island, so this a unique experience not to be missed! The island itself has very few inhabitants at this stage, as most have moved to the mainland. It's a lovely place to visit with fantastic panoramic views back towards the mainland. You can walk the whole island with time to spare for a picnic too in a short day, so start early for the cable car as they can only take between 4 & 6 people at a time (dependent on whether a group is together or not) Highly recommend, but there is absolutely no shelter, so make sure it's going to be a dry day.

Great experience going in the only cablecar in Ireland, only 6 people allowed inside but plenty of room, takes around 15 mins travelling over the ocean with fabulous views, the island is beautiful, different walks both long and short available to do or just stroll at leisure as far as you can go. Small ruins with graveyard there which is interesting, not a lot to see there except the magnificent scenery, I would throughly recommend it. The queue is long in the afternoon to get back off island so be aware you could be waiting an hour or more to return. Islanders get first dibs on cablecar but the gentleman we met allowed us to go ahead of him as it was turning cold and We'd waited an hour so we were very grateful.

What an experience!! A short but amazing trip across open waters to an amazing island, full of history, wildlife and most importantly, pace and quiet. So worth a visit and so much more to do around the area.
