Take in views to the wide Caragh River Valley and the range of hills beyond, dominated by the tilted triangular peak of Mulaghanattin (773m). Soon you’ll reach the shores of Lough Acoose, with views beyond the Dingle Peninsula, western Reeks and Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain (1,039m). Finally, you approach Glencar on the main road.

Panoramic views of 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 have 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.

Veiligheidsaanwijzingen

This walk involves some gradual climbs and steep ascents on Lack Road followed by a steep descent into the Caragh Valley. The trail is undulating, especially in the forest. There is a steeper climb to Windy Gap, take extra care in wet and windy conditions, especially if the grounds are boggy. 

Take care on a couple of steep and bouldery descents from the two passes on this section.

Parts of this route follow minor roads and although the roads and lanes can be quiet it's always best to walk on the right to face any oncoming traffic and make yourself as visible as possible.

There is a risk of ticks in the grass. Use insect repellent and check your body on arrival.

Tips en hints

Food & Drink

There is nowhere en route to buy food so it's best to speak to your B&B host to arrange for a packed lunch to be made for you or to purchase it locally before setting off. Alternatively, on arrival in Glenbeigh, there are many restaurants, bars & cafes.

Tochtbeschrijving

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
