We did the Poet's Way route (~8 miles and ~4 hours). Walk was more intermediate level - it is January and very wet/boggy with a view detours required as a result. Good distance and the views were incredible. Save some energy for the final 30-40 minute stint which is all uphill - with breathtaking viewpoint for reward. We rated 8.5/10... 更多
The walks along this peninsula are breathtaking, on a sunny day you can see for miles over two amazing bays and three peninsulas. You can start on a hill above Bantry town and walk all the 25 miles to the end over a few days. Just make sure to have plenty memory in your camera or phone. Unmissable.
A beautiful drive, wonderful views especially on a good day and roads too narrow for a large tour bus! Some interesting places en route and a lovely coffee shop near the end of the road. Very peaceful and unspoiled! Well worth the drive!
Nice scenery on the drive out to the point. Raining and windy the day we went out so we couldn't hike out to the lighthouse but would certainly try next time. Beautiful country views and small villages on the way.
Once we found the carpark, the markers along the route were excellent! Amazing views... completely unspoilt landscape. (More help to locate the carpark at the top of the hill would be helpful because that narrow road makes you feel as though you've gone wrong)
From Bantry it's an long, idyllic drive through hedges, pastures and along the coast out to the old lighthouse. Even on weekends it's not too crowded and the scenery in all directions is spectacular. The walk down to the lighthouse is well worn,dry and easy but also exhilarating enough to feel you've gotten some exercise.(4Km RT) It can be very... 更多
What a great discovery for photography and friendly people! Thank you Siobhan Burke for all your information so that we could enjoy our trip to Ireland!
We arrived at the trailhead. The restrooms had one open, no other guest services available, closed for the season. However, we could hike. The sign at the trail head said it was 1.5 km. Not sure if that was one way or round trip. We clocked 4 miles round trip. It was moderate with some seriously steep parts. Spectacular vistas.... 更多
Located over Bantry town, this picnic area has views for miles, looking out to Widdy island, large tanks and the sea. This is located just a few miles out on a very windy quant road. If you are in the area and have not visited, do so. It's free and worth a look. Travel out the road to Drimoleague and... 更多
