The Deelish Cascades Walk is a scenic and relaxing one-hour walking route along the Drimoleague Heritage Walkways in West Cork.
Leaving Castledonovan Bridge, walk the old mass path along the banks of the Ilen River, with its cascades, cliffs and patchwork field systems.
This linear walk takes about one hour. You get a real feel for the river, with its cascades, dippers (wading birds) and occasionally an otter. A huge river bend in the form of an ox bow is quite interesting, as are the archaeological features you can see from here, a mound at Seehanes, and a ring fort at Deelish.
The path joins a quiet road and continues to the Ahanafunsion bridge amenity area. You can purchase the Drimoleague Heritage Walkways book at Centra Drimoleague for more details on this walk.
