Set behind Cahersiveen, Benatee is just a short walk from the town. Following the trail once you’ve left the road can be as challenging as the climb as a lot of the markers had fallen down. The climb though difficult in places is well worth...More

This took us 5 hours but then we are London softies and used to the flat! It starts gently but then you go straight up the hill and it's quite a pull! You'll find walking poles are handy if it's muddy. The views are sensational...More

Got up before dawn and drove to the car park from Knightstown. Pleased to find we only had to pay 2 euro for the car. A spectacular walk with expansive views to the islands and commanding views back across Valentia. Would recommend dawn for the...More
