Maybe one of Ireland’s best kept secret hiking trails, this 42.5km hike around the rugged and beautiful West Cork Peninsula, is as varied as it is stunning. Rocky coastlines, sandy beaches, quaint villages, old woodlands and rolling farmland, the terrain is as variable as is the wildlife which changes according to the time of year. Look out for rare Choughs and little Egrets and be charmed by the abundant flora. Starting and ending in Courtmacsherry, this is a medium hike with a total elevation gain of 2703 ft. Dogs are allowed on this trail.
