Loop Walk Over Mullaghmesha is located near Bantry, Ireland. The trail is great for walking and normally takes a half day. It is also part of St. Finbarr's Way - a walk from Drimoleague to Gougane Barra. This can be either a loop walk, or for those with less stamina, a shorter hill walk with a car left in Castledonovan at the end of the walk. Start at Barnafulladh on the road going north from Catstledonovan, take a fairly steady climb to the top of Mullaghmesha Mountain (600m) which gives breathtaking views over the Kerry mountains and Cork coastline. You then head down by Coomanore Lakes and down a pleasant track to the village of Castledonovan where there is an Alpaca farm to visit if you still have the energy!
