Bolus Head Loop Walk – Sunday 19 May’24







On this 7.5KM moderately difficult coastal walking loop we will take in fantastic views across the Wild Atlantic to the Skelligs and Puffin Island whilst tackling some moderately challenging ascents and descents on uneven tracks on this waymarked walk.

Photos From The Day

This beautiful walk starts from the car park at the monument (Dullcalla, Ballinskelligs) to the American Liberator, which crashed off the Skelligs in 1944. The start of the walk on a minor road, leads on to tracks and ultimately rougher ground following waymark arrows, through gates, over styles and streams and along the slopes of the Bolus Mountain.

The cliff walk is quite close to the edge where we will exercise great care as we take the steep ascent up to the old barracks/ Napoleonic Tower. At the top here we will get great views back to the Skelligs and 360 Degree views of the Atlantic.

If we are lucky, we many get to see dolphins or basking sharks.

Dogs are not allowed on this walk.
