Firstly this trip starts off on a boat, I love boats, I love being on water. There are seals that are perched on rocks on your way to the island. Looking adorably cute I may add. The ferry across costs about €10 and they come every half hour. The town of Glengarriff is beautiful, really pretty town in Cork.
The views all around the Island are incredible! The island itself is gorgeous and on a summer day it is bliss, it’s almost like it has it’s own climate, so if you go don’t forget suncream and even a hat just in case. Admission onto the island is €4 so really affordable.
The gardens are lovely, such a variety of flowers and trees. There are great walks and paths all around the island. There are different sections such as the Italian Garden and the Walled Garden. The island has a martello tower which you can climb and look out onto the bay. Really great attraction to visit. It is a really relaxing place that is perfect for a picnic.
