East Cork

Knockadoon, Barry-Coves-Way, Co.Cork

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!

Youghal beach walk, Co. Cork

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.

Before planing your walk keep the tide times and sun protection in mind. Both are necessary to have a good walking experience at this time of the year.

Ballycotton Cliff Walk

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.

Basically, it’s already the 3rd waterfall I introduce, if I take the tiny one into account that is located just behind the Inniscara Dam in Lee Valley. Nevertheless, it is the 2nd one that is worth to go for a walk because of it.

A Christmas special for you!

Before the storm… Curragh, Co. Cork

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.
