Easy trails characterise this section as you follow first a ‘boreen’ (small road) then gravel forestry tracks to Lickeen Wood.
Panoramic views to the wooded valley of Glencar and Lough Caragh enchant you as you round the hill and then ascend the gentle lower slopes of Seefin.
You’ve a choice of (both delightful) paths to Glenbeigh; either descending on a gentler, but longer approach (9km), or following a shorter rocky track to Glenbeigh (4km) ascending 100m to the saddle at Windy Gap, from where you will enjoy vistas over beautiful Inch Strand beach and the Dingle Peninsula. Glenbeigh is situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and a great place to revel in traditional music and old-world pubs.
