(Quote: Sheehan/O`Sullivan: The Iveragh Peninsula- An Archeological Survey of South Kerry)
Beginish Island shows a very diverse selection of different rock formations. You have stone surfaces that have been softened by the sea, very interesting shapes, a great variety of colours and textures and little ponds filled with water in contrast to the dry stone. I go to Beginish Island sometimes as part of my workshops schedule. There are four huts dating back to Early Medieval Period and on a later stage the existance of a Hiberno-Viking settlement. You can still see field walls and animal shelters.
Please do not leave anything on the island and take only photos and memories home.
