Well, we can’t complain about the last days, can we? It was during the days only partly cloudy or really sunny, not longer that cold and not to windy. And last Sunday was a highlight. I had to got for a walk though. On my list since March was Barry-Coves-Way in Knockadoon. Knockadoon? Never heard before? Never have been before? Time to change that!
By calender it’s already spring and so let’s go today to the most south eastern part of County Cork. To Youghal. Youghal calls wonderful beaches its own, which can be divided into 2 sections or better in 3? And Youghal has its own website for more information about swimming at Youghal beaches.
Overall it is a bit more than 5 km long beach and excellently designed for walking. To and back is 10 km. Not the shortest walk and good to know, if you want to walk with children. As it isn’t a loop walk due to local circumstances, you have 2 points to start.
This February acts like April. Snow – frost – rain – sun. Every day a bit different but it tends to be a bit warmer some days. And once the sun comes out, you can feel the power. However, the piercing wind finally seems to turn north rather than south and now we have the opportunity to walk at the beaches and the cliffs. And County Cork has a few nice walks along the coasts.
Believe it or not, it’s only about 50 days to go until Easter. No, it’s not an April Fool’s joke. It’s true. In 2018, Easter Sunday is on the 1st of April! Time to plan what to do on such a special weekend. Why not try the Northeast of County Cork?
The first weekend in January 2018 was freezing cold. But it was so sunny and that’s why I decided to walk in one of my favorite areas.
A Christmas special for you!
Castlemartyr has a wonderful area that needs to be explored. Not only because it is a historical area, but it’s another multi-access site to a forest recreation area (more information about: http://www.coillte.ie/site/castlemartyr/). The forest is only divided by the Castlemartyr Resort.
What to do, when the main color on the sky is grey instead of blue? Exactly! Dress properly and out for a walk 🙂
Today I was at Curragh. A wonderful Forest Recreation Area to walk through. I only walked half the way through, because I wasn’t dressed so properly. You should have always a pair of hiking shoes in your car’s boot. I missed taking care of that.
A few days earlier when the days were still sunny and warm, I was in Rostellan. Absolutely worth as you have here plenty of possibilities to find your personal walk. You can spend hours at this place if you want. This blog entry will be continued as it was not the last time, I was here. More pictures and a few more details will follow.
To make it for all a bit easier to use the bank holiday weekend, I want to recommend today 2 possibilities to enjoy the days outside.
