Hire a bike in Kilcrohane and start exploring the coastline of the Sheep’s Head peninsula – one of the most unspoilt stretches of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way touring route
When you cycle along the Sheep’s Head peninsula, you’ll have time to take in fantastic views across Dunmanus Bay and Bantry Bay. Visit the coastal villages on the peninsula’s south side. Ahakista and Durrus are great places to stop for a coffee! Or why not tackle the hairpin bends on the aptly named ‘Goat’s Path’? It’s a great favourite with local cyclists!
Don’t miss the experience of cycling the Wild Atlantic Way. It’s the perfect way to take in great sea views, and listen to local birdsong. Each of our walk trailheads has a bike rack fitted, so it’s easy to combine a bike ride with a Sheep’s Head Way loop walk.
Hire a bike for the day and you’ll really enjoy exploring our stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Take in the fresh sea air and the fragrance of our local wildflowers as you cycle, and build up an appetite for a really fantastic lunch.
And when your cycle along the coast is over, head back to The Old Creamery in Kilcrohane where you’ll find fresh local food served in a stylish café and restaurant with views over the local river and Dunmanus Bay.
Doesn’t that sound like the perfect way to spend a day living the Sheep’s Head Way?!
