Directions to Hermitage as follows :
If you drive along the coast road at Salterstown take the right turn at the end (you must as this is the end of the road!!). This road will take you past a thatched cottage and farm and up to a T junction on the Annagassan to Clogherhead road. Turn left at this junction and carry on until you reach a crossroads. Turn left again and continue for about 2km until you see the sign for Dunany Horse Trials. (There is a long avenue type road/lane leading up to this). The road down to Hermitage is immediately BEFORE this lane on the left. It has been tarmacced in recent times and is quite easy to drive down. It brings you directly to an old disused harbour - the remains of the pier are still there. When you arrive there be patient as sometimes there appears to be nothing there but given time they will come to you. It is an amazing place and well worth spending some time there.
Hope this helps. If you need any further information let me know.
