A highlight is a boat trip from Portmagee to the stunning Skellig Michael .Skellig Rock
The Skellig rocks, which are located 12kms off the coast of Kerry, are of such an importance that they have been made a World Heritage Site. When you first see The Skelligs you wonder how or why anyone would live on such a remote rock in the middle of The Atlantic , when you visit and stand on the site of the monastery and Experience the Skelligs then you begin to understand.
Waterville is just 10 minutes drive The late Henry Cotton, three times British Open Champion, probably said it best when he commented: 'Waterville has to be one of the greatest golf courses ever built. If it were located in Britain, it would undoubtedly be a venue for the British Open. I have never seen a more consistent succession of really strong and beautiful golf holes than here.'
Another jewel in the crown is Dooks. The golf course is laid out on one of three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle Bay. In the immediate foreground are the dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch, while just a few short miles away, the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village provide another eye catching distraction. To the southeast are the famed peaks of McGillycuddy Reeks, while looking northwards across the bay; one can see Slieve Mish and the Dingle mountains dominate the landscape. Dooks offers the visitor a unique links experience in a majestic setting and is perfectly suited to the golfer seeking a tranquil environment in which to enjoy a superb golf course. The par 3, 13th hole, measuring 150 yards, probably best represents the charm and magic that is inherent at Dooks.
Other nearby activities include cycling, walking, horse riding, fishing, diving, windsurfing,& many other water-sports.
It is minutes walk from the Ballinskelligs Inn and Rosie's Tavern.
