The Drimoleague Heritage Walkways make up a unique network of six wonderful walks, covering an area of nine miles in the West Cork countryside.
Drimoleague was once the busiest railway junction in West Cork with no fewer than three platforms, has now become the hub of walking networks in the area: the ‘walker’s junction’ of West Cork.
Here the acclaimed Sheep’s Head Way walking route converges with the six Drimoleague Heritage Walkways, and then continues northwards to Kealkill. St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Way, a 37km ancient pilgrim path to St Finbarr’s hermitage at Gougane Barra, also starts here.
The Dunmanway network of walks is accessible from Drimoleague and, with a few green road stretches, you can find your way to the walks at Carrigfadda, near Rosscarbery. Skibbereen is just 13km away, with Lough Hyne, Baltimore and other coastal walks within driving distance.
