Seven members enjoyed this walk. We started along the Beara – Breifne Way at Dromgarriff and continued by track on the foothills of Cobduff Mountain and the Old Mill Road to Coomhola Bridge where we enjoyed lunch. Then it was uphill through magical sun-flecked forest onto open hillside giving magnificent views of Bantry Bay and Glengarriff Harbour. The Caha Mountains and Sugarloaf were to our backs. It was a delightful walk in glorious Autumn sunshine with scintillating company.
What a wonderful weekend of weather and unique Burren geology, enjoyed by 13 of our members. On Friday afternoon, we took a short “stretch-the-legs” stroll and were lucky enough to observe a turlough lake. On Saturday, we walked the Cliffs of Moher from Liscannor to Doolin in glorious weather. Sunday’s weather looked less than promising, but it all cleared enough for us to climb Mullaghmore.
Eight walkers enjoyed this very pleasant route – the last of the summer evening walks for this year. Our walk took us from the Garrylucas car park out as far as the Signal Tower on the western track, then back via the eastern track, as far as a laneway, which brought us full circle back to Garrylucas. It was just beginning to get dark as we drove back to Cork.
There were six walkers on this route too. We went as far as the Punch Bowl. The mist came in heavy, so did not continue to top. The day was pleasant, though hot and humid. All up and down safely.
Six walkers set off in summer-like conditions. All was well until we had crossed the Owgarriff River. Then the midges attacked and continued to do so until we reached the top to cold, windy conditions, which made everybody very happy. At the end, we were all happy with a good workout.
There were eight people out on this very pleasant walk. Apart from a very heavy shower at the start, the weather stayed fine for the day. The walk naturally fell into two distinct parts, the first along the spine of the peninsula with wonderful views over neighbouring Beara and Mizen. After a refreshing cup of coffee at the lighthouse cafe the second half was mainly along the cliffs on the northern quieter side. The walk took just over four and a half hours.
