Hill walking, abseiling, horse-riding, deep sea diving to some of the best sites in western Europe, windsurfing, water skiing, sea and lake fishing are all available locally. Daily boat trips are run to the famous Skellig Islands from the nearby Derrynane Harbour with their ancient remains of sixth century monastic life and fascinating bird life, and many visitors describe this as the high point of their holiday. For the golfing enthusiast, there is the world renowned championship 18 hole course at nearby Waterville or the picturesque 12-hole course at Parknasilla.
