Main activities of interest these days include walking & hiking.
Living next to Cork City means… having convenient access to some of the best walking/hiking trails in Ireland.
It was after walking through Hag’s Glen of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks in Co. Kerry when I first got most interested in hiking, and then after climbing its highest peak (Carrauntoohil)… I was hooked.
Favourite destinations inside a 90 minute drive:
1} Co Kerry (near Killarney) with its rugged landscape and highest mountains
2) West Cork (Sheep’s Head & the Beara) with great sea views,wild and most remote locations.
3) Co Tipperary (Galtee & Knockmealdown mountains) with its grassy, peaty and high rounded landscape and expansive views.
4) Co. Waterford (Comeragh mountains) having a mixture of all the above.
Connemara… also has some magnificent walking and hiking trails!
Planning to explore the Beara Peninsula (parts not done) this June (2017) and then the Dingle Peninsula the next chance I get.
All walks (so far) end where they started (looped) and often take longer than they should... that's because of the many stops along the way and when there is a great view... I just don't want to leave :-)
