Mealagh Valley - Saturday
The start of this walk is a steep climb to the top of Mullaghmesha with breath-taking views over Bantry Bay, once the top is reached the walk continues on level terrain before descending down the mountain again. The final section of the walk passes through farmland and along a section of the picturesque Mealagh River and ends at the Mealagh Valley Hall. The walk takes approximately 2.5 hours and again is suitable for children but is off road so no buggies!
Drimoleague Deelish Cascades - Sunday
Starting from the historic Castle Donovan, this beautiful riverside walk followed the old mass path along the Ilen River with its cascades and cliffs. See where the Clodagh and Ilen Rivers meet and cross on stepping stones in the search for wild ducks before reaching the Top of the Rock with its panoramic views! This walk takes approximately 2 hours and is suitable for children but no buggies as we did go off road!
