Walking

WINDY GAP

This loop walk begins and ends in Glenbeigh, wending through the Windy Gap by Seefin Hill before following a slope overlooking Caragh Lake.

 

Along the way, you can enjoy a variety of landscapes, from the surrounding bogland and MacGillycuddy’s Reeks rising beyond the hills to Caragh Lake and finally the place where the River Caragh meets the sea near Rossbeigh Strand.

 

The final leg of the circuit will bring you through Glenbeigh.
