Walking

The spectacular West Cork countryside around Baltimore and the islands makes great walking country and walkers are increasingly being drawn to this picturesque corner of Ireland. Whether you are looking for strenuous exercise or just a quiet stroll, the combination of quiet country lanes, rugged hillsides and magnificent coastal scenery make the perfect backdrop. An added dimension is provided by numerous sites of historic interest and glimpses of the area's fascinating wildlife. There are maps and guides available with suggested routes and detailing points of interest, while a number of specialist operators offer guided walking tours in the area. You can also join one of the organised walking festivals that take place every year.
