Awesome hike! Perfect to see the many different aspect of Ireland's natural habitat. You'll start out going through a paved/gravel path through the mossy woods that takes you around to a mountain side trail with great views of the ocean/city. Don't forget to stop off at some of the burial sites along the way, especially the Ballyedmonduff Wedge Tomb. In order to get there you need to go off the loop trail and down the mountain a ways, but it's worth it when you get there. Lastly, when you get to the Fairy Castle peak, even the most skeptical of hikers would be satisfied. Following this rolling green mountain ridge is everything that people want to see in an Ireland hike. We got lucky while up there and had some fog roll in creating a really awesome and eerie environment. The hike took us about 6 hours, but could be done in 4-5 if you're an experienced hiker. We usually like to keep it casual and take in the views. Be sure to finish the hike before sundown. The last portion is on a really tight and windy road that's not well catered to hikers. Safety first! Cheers!
