  • Carnsore Point is the südöstlichstes tip of Ireland and was previously a corner when sailors dreaded: many shipwrecks from the 18th and 19th centuries ahead of Carnsore Point. In good weather you can see the lighthouse on the also infamous Tuskar rocks (facing no less than 176 known shipwrecks and an Aer Lingus ended found flyer. from Carnsore point on the sea looking left Nowhere else so many wrecks pile up in the water in front of Ireland at one point how here) today the beach to Carnsore Point has remained a remarkably pristine with huge boulders, so just get there seems to have thrown the a giant. Exactly the beach, which was previously pictured in the 1970s on photo wallpapers in party basements as "Irish Beach" and one would expect actually more in the far west of the country. The stones are dangerous, not only for the shipping (see above), but exclude also the swimming, but the area around Carnsore Point is wonderful for hiking and walking. Very lonely in the spring and leave and therefore ideal for civilization refugees from the continent. The giant wind turbines that every romantic relentlessly remind you that everything has a price are the only shortcoming for nature lovers. Carnsore Point was time provided as the site for the first Irish nuclear power plant, but never built. But not to disrupt the next grazing cows whose duration lunatic seems, now the energy industry just has bigger a wind farm there.
