Be aware that Ireland could be very wet and muddy between November and April. The top 1 hour walking distance and the view is amazing just keep walking keep walking.

lovely cliff walk at any time of the year. The Fushia Path is particularly beautiful during the the summer when the fushia is in bloom .

Nice little hike to the peak of Bweeng Little, for morning cardio or to walk a dog. Mostly zigzaging rocky forestry road, with part of narrow trail, then nice flat before steap hike to the peak.

Lovely scenic and varied walk. Starts in native woodland and opens to coastal path with views of the old head of Kinsale. Ends in lovely Courtmacsherry, home of a historic lifeboat and several nice cafes.

Older route, not the signposted route between Ballyhooly and Killavullen on the Blackwater Way.

Great outing. I did it in clockwise direction starting at castle Donovan. Road first and then up the hill. Very well signposted. Top is exposed and boggy but great views. Took me 2.5 hours to do loop but allow 3 hours for relaxed walk with stops etc. Road section back down hill to castle Donovan has plenty of black berries to eat in august!
