Cape Clear Island is in a fantastic location, in the southern coast of west Ireland. It’s easy enough to reach -- you can catch a ferry from Baltimore or from Schull. If you’re on a bike, the bike goes free. Your options for hostels on Cape Clear Island are limited, so those that exist will be quite busy, especially during the summer -- book well ahead in advance.

The heritage center is a great place to start out, if you’re looking for things to do. The ruins of Dunamore Castle are great if you’re looking for a photo op. They are fairly awesome. If you like birdwatching, Cape Clear is a great place to bring your binoculars and camera. The wildlife in the area is quite diverse. The views are also simply amazing, and if it’s a warm, sunny summer day, consider taking a swim in the ocean.

There aren’t a lot of options for dining, but the pub serves the best home-cooked meals. Make sure to try their amazing and delicious food. If you don’t want to shell out money for food, make sure to do some shopping in a grocery before catching the ferry.

If you want to get the most out of your trip, consider bringing a bike along. The island of Cape Clear has much to explore, but there are other places to see. Baltimore is a great place check out, but it’s starting to see a lot of touristy traffic, so explore some of the other towns along the coast as well.
