Today the path leads you along beaches, cliff-tops and some minor roads with the excellent views along the Dingle Peninsula.

A bracing day’s walking along the coastal paths, with outstanding views over the wild Atlantic Ocean and secluded beaches. Perhaps stop at the workshop of renowned Irish potter Louis Mulcahy at Clothar, where you can enjoy coffee and cake in the café or even try your hand at the craft yourself (open July/August).

You will pass by Ferriters Cove and iconic Three Sisters, before the trail swings east to take you along the sandy beaches of Smerwick Harbour.
