For Walking Routes in Cork, the Seven Heads Walk is simply a must! Nestled away on the picturesque West Cork Coastline, the Seven Heads Peninsula not only offers a range of walking routes, but also the most exquisite of panoramic scenery. Extending from Timoleague Village through Courtmacsherry and around the rugged cliffs and shoreline of West Cork.


While becoming increasingly popular year on year, the walking route was only launched in 1998 to allow all to embrace the breathtaking scenery over the entirety of the walk, coming to approximately 42.5km around the full peninsula. The Seven Heads Long Loop Walk is one of Ireland’s best coastal walks.

While offering an amass of walking route options, the Seven Heads Peninsula is also a historical site with a wide variety of interesting flora and fauna that vary throughout the course of the year. The walkway itself leads voyagers through a course of different types of territory, rocky coastline, sandy beaches and much more.
