During my trip to Ireland, I stayed @ Mannix Point Camping and Caravan Park on the Wild Atlantic Way in County Kerry, I was mesmerized by the breathtaking views of Valentia Island and the Atlantic Ocean. This cozy campsite offers a perfect spot for pitches for tents, caravans, and campers. The stunning scenery is just one of the many reasons to visit this location.
For those interested in local history and culture, there are plenty of historical locations nearby. One of the most prominent attractions is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Skellig Islands, which can be seen from the campsite. But that’s just the beginning. Walking the Kerry Way, the oldest long-distance walking trail in Ireland offers a great opportunity to explore the rich history of this region, from castles to church ruins and much more.
During my stay at Mannix Point, I took a short boat ride to Foughill Island (a picture of this island is the header picture in this article), a small island near the campsite, and was amazed by the old church ruin. The St. Michael’s Church ruin dates back to the 12th century and was later rebuilt in the 16th century as a defense tower. Though the tower was destroyed during the 1641 rebellion, this location has retained its charm and is a popular spot for photographers and history enthusiasts.
In conclusion, Mannix Point Camping and Caravan Park is a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience the history and beauty of County Kerry, Ireland. With its stunning views, rich culture, and historic sites, this location offers an unforgettable experience. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this incredible region!
