Glenbeigh to Rossbeigh ‘Off Road’ Walk

Glenbeigh has so many great walks, it’s hard to choose which one to do while visiting the area. This is a fantastic walk if you have a little time to spare, it’s not too strenuous so can be done with children too.

To start off, walk from Glenbeigh Village along the R564 Rossbeigh Road to the Picnic Area at Faha Wood.  At the Picnic area follow the path leading upwards into Faha Wood. Instead of turning left for the Fairy Forest, continue straight on and over the stile.
Follow the path and enjoy the amazing countryside around you and the spectacular views as you look down on Rossbeigh Spit, one of Kerry’s most glorious beaches. To the foreground admire Dingle Harbour or look behind you and take in the magical vistas of Cromane Harbour and Dooks.
There are a few steep and rocky inclines on the way so sturdy footwear is advise. Once you reach the end of the path onto the main road, take the sign post to Glenbeigh – take a seat in one of the picnic benches and enjoy a bite to eat or enjoy a stroll along our majestic Rossbeigh Beach.
 You can return via the same route or along the public road. – please be advised that dogs are not allowed on this walk due to the numbers of sheep on the mountain – they do tend to cross your path from time to time.  Get in touch with us today to organise your next trip to Glenbeigh with family, friends or your walking group.
