sheeps head peninsula

Cupán Tae at the Sheep's Head Peninsula

County Cork

When it comes to coastal wildernesses, the spellbinding wave-lashed peninsula of Sheep's Head in County Cork is a cut above. Walk out to the lighthouse that sits at its very tip and you'll be surrounded by the white-tipped Atlantic Ocean and views that stretch out indefinitely. But this wild little spot is also home to what has been dubbed "the tea shop at the end of the world". Run by Bernie Tobin, Cupán Tae ("cup of tea" in Irish) sits at the start of the lighthouse walk and is the essence of simple food done well, with salmon sandwiches, light fluffy scones and legendary apple pie.
