Sunset Trips - West Cork enjoys wonderful red sunsets on clear days with spectacular skies - we travel to the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse, great for digital photography enthusiasts or the romantic amongst you. On those clear summer nights sunset times obviously vary depending on the time of year and after the red skies go dark the bright moonlight guides us back to Baltimore harbour in time for you to enjoy a night cap in one of the bars locally.
