Sheep Head is the name of the peninsula that makes the 2nd finger reaching into the Atlantic from the south-west of Ireland .
A tiny road will take you through the wild landscape with only a very few houses here or there. This peninsula makes a perfect place for hiking and wild camping, as long as you respect the common rules. "Wild camping" is ment in a caravan or Motorhome of course, with a tent it will be hard to find a flat ground without the remains of the sheep and safe from them ! Most probably your motorhome will be visited only by the local sheep and once it even happened to me at such an occasion that a group of sheep started to scream as long as I stayed in the parking-bay that they normally use themselves during the night. Finally it was so noisy that I was searching for a different parking and the sheep took over my wind-sheltered parking-space. ;-(
