What You'll Do
  • Escape to a landscape festooned with little ports, bays, inlets and harbours, the ocean is never more than a thought away!
  • Relax on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula, a peaceful and unchanged corner of southwest Ireland offering a variety of terrain, all with beautiful views
  • Marvel at the superb moorland crest and rugged cliffs as well as easy lowland terrain.
West Cork is truly a world apart, seemingly remote from the constant hub of modern life yet discreetly offering quiet time to breathe in the freshest sea salt air.
What to Expect
Day 1

Arrive in Bantry and collect “Walk Information Pack” from your first house accommodation. Your first night is spent 5km from Bantry at the start of the Sheep’s Head Way in order to you allow you get the best from the first days walking. Overnight near Bantry.

Day 2

Walk from the start of the Sheep’s Head Way to Glanlough. Overnight in the village of Kilcrohane which lies under the shadow of ‘Seefin’, the Peninsula’s highest point. Kilcrohane has an all year round population of approximately 300 persons but this number more than doubles during the busy summer season and takes its name from the Church of St. Crohan founded in the 8th century.

Day 3

You will be transferred to Cahergal from where you walk out along to the Lighthouse (look out for the Dolphin and Whale viewpoint), continuing back the Sheep’s Head route on the southern side of the Peninsula to Kilcrohane. Overnight in Kilcrohane.

Day 4

Walk from nearby Ahakista to Durrus along the Sheep’s Head route. Overnight at Durrus which is a very pleasant village located at the head of Dunmanus Bay. Ahakista is the site for a Memorial to those who lost their lives off this coast in the Air India air crash in 1985.

Day 5

After breakfast your host will arrange to get a taxi to take you back to Bantry, but we understand that there is a “local” bus service … he will give you full details.
