Ard na Gaoithe

A warm welcome awaits you in our island home. Ard na Gaoithe is a family run 3* Fáilte Ireland approved island Bed and Breakfast accommodation. Cape Clear is beautiful, unspoilt and life is punctuated by the sounds of the Atlantic waves and birdsong rather than traffic and alarms. The roads are narrow and wind their way all over the island; hidden paths take you over the majestic cliff tops and through secret bogs and glens. It is a paradise for walkers.  Walking here is pure pleasure and it is suitable for most people. In 2010 the first looped walk was opened and is proving a great success with our guests. And of course the island is one of the best locations in Ireland for bird watching. We are happy to do very early breakfast for our guests. We speak Gaelic and English. There is always a special welcome for Gaelic speakers, beatha teanga í a labhairt!

Cape Clear hostel


Cape Clear Holiday Hostel is based in an historic building known as 'The Old Coastguard Station'.  The hostel is stunningly situated in the South Harbour next to the beach with lovely views from all of the rooms.  Your stay might coincide with the annual arrival of the gentle Basking Sharks to the harbour directly outside the bedroom windows.  Cape Clear is Ireland's southernmost inhabited island.  It is three miles long by a mile wide, and lies an eight mile ferry ride off the coast of Southwest Cork. The ferry to Cape Clear departs from Baltimore throughout the year, and Schull during the summer.  It is as good as a mini cruise with a chance of seeing seals and sometimes whales, dolphins and porpoises on the trip.

Yurt Holidays Ireland Cape Clear
Awaken in your yurt or tipi to the sound of waves gently lapping at rocks below you, then cast back the door to the amazing views across the sparkling waters of South Harbour to the hills with their quaint meandering roads and stone built walls, showered with wild flowers and gorse. With the sun seeping through the weave of the canvas of your tipi or through the clear roof of your yurt, enjoy your leisurely breakfast while you plan your day. Relax, you can always go for a walk to the lighthouse tomorrow...On entering your yurt or tipi, instead of turning your back on nature outside, you will become closer to it, sheltered in your canvas cocoon.
