Photos From the Day

This walk is about 1 hour ascent and another hour down. If the group does the loop it’s a good 2 hours road walking afterwards so leaders Frank McGonigle and Nick Heffernan plan to cut out most of the road walking.

They suggest parking a car at Bar in Killmacalogue which will cut the road walking to 25mins. We can have lunch/ refreshments in the Bar afterwards.

Meet at Dan Murphys at 10am. Frank will meet the those traveling in the Square Kenmare and go from there. Park cars and start at base of Knockatee near Gowlaun Lough V781 601 and meet the road at V767 612.

With all advertised walks please bear in mind that these can change at short notice due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances. Meeting point for these walks (unless otherwise noted) is outside Dan Murphy’s Bar in Sneem at 10AM. Please ensure that you are registered on the Sneem Walking Club’s Whatsapp Group for updates. Please note that dogs are not allowed on our walks, as we walk on privately owned land with the kind permission of the owners / farmers.
