Enjoy the mix of surfaced and sandy roads, grassy and earthen paths on Cape Clear’s Gleann Loop as you make your way from the Tourist Office on the island, following the clear route markers on this rewarding 1.5-2hr walking adventure.

With an overall 280m ascent and easy accessibility, this trail is perfect for the walker with an average level of experience.

Take in some of the finest scenery in Cork as you hike over rolling hills and along charming pathways amid unspoilt nature, with views of castle ruins, harbours, and of course the seemingly endless ocean to enjoy.

The pace of life on Cape Clear is truly different to that of the mainland, and nowhere do you get a better sense of this than where the trail skirts out around the island’s edge, bringing Fastnet Rock and the West Cork coastline into view.
