Then instead of it being the Wild Atlantic Way it would only be the Irish Coastal Route - doesn't have the same thrill to it.

Certainly think it should have gone further along the north and south coasts mind. But it's use is primarily as a tourist hook and Youghal is the start of Ireland's Ancient East or whatever that counter-balance to WAW is called.

Apparently the tourism businesses in the east are anything but pleased at the roaring success the WAW has become - I don't think those who came up with the idea first day realised just how much it would have taken off. Hopefully it'll go on for decades to generate much needed jobs on the relatively destitute west coast.

Looking for recommendations for a looped walk somewhere in west Cork. Nothing too strenuous, will have baby in sling. Maybe 5k-10k of easy enough terrain.

Any advice appreciated.

I know sure.. I'm easy, it's a return day trip I'll be doing from home so I'm open to anywhere. Schull, Skib, Bantry, Clon, Baltimore, wherever. .

Sheeps head is a lovely walk and there is a nice cafe out there.

Mizen head is nice too, the lighthouse is well worth a look.

Galley head outside Clon. I do have a bit of a lighthouse obsession so maybe I am more drawn to them than others might be!

Loads of lovely walks on Beara but that might be a bit far for a day trip?

Cheers. I've been meaning to do Sheep's head. Might do that, or Mizzen.

Mizen Head is excellent, Barleycove is nearby too. Bit of a drive for a one day trip though.


Where does the walk for Sheeps head start?

If you're ever down around Mizen for Three Castle Head, which is nearby. There's a nice little cafe there too in a farm yard and it's a grand walk out to the coast.
