Garnish island

Fantastic day trip from nearby Bantry. The island itself is wonderful, all sorts of hidden corners and surprises, and the gardens themselves are truly impressive. The cafe was also quite good for pastries and snacks. The boat ride over is a nice, short trip; you see seals along the way and it's very sweet. My one complaint is that the tours of the house seem somewhat hard to access, they only accept ten people at a time, and there's a long delay between tours, so chances are you won't get in. Not sure if it's worth it or not, though. We certainly had a great visit without seeing the house; fun for kids, too
