Afternoon in West Cork

by Mike Linehan December. 14, 2020 200 views

A cousin of mine lives just over 5k off the main road. If you have good nerves it's a beautiful rural location with the only internet via satellite. You have to navigate 4ks of very narrow boreens followed by 1.5k off track. Any faster than 10kph & have a good mechanic plus a garage load of spare parts. It has a pass out spot every few hundred metres to pass. Good reversing skills essential. Thankfully you rarely meet anyone but it happen. Twice today

Fantastic views

Thank you. My cousin lives nearby this wild location. It’s one of my favourite places in Ireland. Incredibly rugged😊

Thanks for sharing these and making such a remote place accessible to us. No noisy neighbours there.

Beautiful captures, but truly remote.

Part of Christmas present run. Last stretch to the farmhouse I walked as too much grass growing on the road. A truly beautiful place with no signposts. This is an artists home😊

Looks wonderful Mike, very remote and peaceful. What are the tracks for, peat?

Could be. The couple who own this house live here part time usually Summer & weekends. They are also artists like my cousin
