C Walks are for those who enjoy regular casual walking activities

Bantry Walking Festival Walkers
Whiddy Island Walk

Take a boat trip out to one of West Cork’s historic islands! On Whiddy, we explored historical sites from the ruin of O’Sullivan Bere’s castle, to deserted English gun batteries, and a World War One seaplane base, on an absorbing and informative tour. The walk encompasses a variety of terrains from soft fields to rocky beaches and appropriate footwear is required to prevent discomfort.

The island, which currently has a population of around 20 people during the winter months, is about 5.6km long and 2.4km wide, and the walk takes about 3 hrs in total. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes if the weather takes a turn and you wish to remain on the island after the walk!

The cost of this walk included ferry transfers to and from the island, courtesy of Whiddy Island Ferries.
