A fan of Father Ted? Just a 20-minute drive from Kilmihil is the Famous Father Ted House. You aren’t allowed to walk in the grounds of the house or the actual house unless you book the afternoon tea option but that does not mean you can’t stop for a photo opportunity!
The last destination on the west side of Ireland on our trip must be Foynes Island Viewpoint. We can’t end a trip empty handed. Luckily just up the road is Kelly’s Costcutter who serve Urban Sips. The viewpoint takes in the estuary of the River Shannon. There is also the Foynes Flying Boat and Maritime Museum nearby to learn more about the history the port holds.
The Maritime Museum gives you the opportunity to see a 360 view of the village of Foynes and the Shannon estuary from the control tower. Take a trip to see the Ghost Ship, what life on the river would hold and check out the boat displays.
The Aviation Museum gives viewers a glance at the B314 replica and meet pioneers of aviation. Ever dreamed of taking on a flying boat, well here is your chance at the museum they over flight simulators or just want to catch a movie? Take a trip back to the future and see an authentic 1940’s era cinema and catch the award-winning film “Atlantic Conquest”.
Need a five-minute break to yourself pop into Kelly’s Costcutter and grab an Urban Sips Coffee press pause and relax. Take in all of what you have explored and travelled and enjoy a cup of Urban Sips while doing so.
