The Blowing Hole, Caherciveen

Just a few miles north of Caherciveen, over the bridge and "Over the Water" as the locals call it, is one of the many exciting cliff features in the area, no doubt formed by the pounding waves of Dingle Bay and the wind which doesn´t seem to stop these days. To go near the Blowing Hole is not for the faint hearted, so if you are going to attempt it do so with utmost care.
Less spectacular but even more beautiful are the details in the Old Red Sandstone which you find everywhere without any big danger, and sprayed by rain or other water they sparkle like any precious stone.
