Cape Clear is a good day out if you like walking and Irish coastal scenery. The 10.30 crossing from Baltimore seems to be the busiest so get there early for a parking space in the car park; otherwise you might end up on double yellow...More

It was a bleak, rainy, cold, windy day (in summer) and it was still worth the trip. The lady with the bus will take you most places and the heritage centre is worth at least an hour even if it doesn't have a heater! Highlight...More

A unusual experience, we enjoyed the boat trip to the island and it was an interesting and different experience. Worth the trip just to experience how remote the island is.

Not 'in the yurts' . There are common toilets on their site, the yurt and tents share those. But there aren't that many yurts,tents on the site for the toilets/bathroom to be crowded.
