Sheep’s Head Way section 4 is a short walking route which brings you down ‘The Horseshoe Road’ from Seefin to the start of the lighthouse walk near the end of the Sheep’s Head peninsula
The Horseshoe Road leads you along a green track and a small road to the parking area at Cahergal. An alternative route, staying on the ridge, is also available.

The track that forms Sheep’s Head Way section 4 leads off from the ‘Goat’s Path’ road on the peninsula’s northern flank. It’s easy to follow as it winds its way below the ridge, finally descending to the public road.
At marker 200 (IV 78928 38693), turn left onto the road and continue to the parking area at Cahergal.
The Cahergal Loop joins the route here.
To stay on the ridge from Seefin, (longer – but well worth it!), take the Peakeen Ridge route and then turn onto the Cahergal route to reach the parking area by another path.
