This short loop from Ballingeary takes you through some beautiful and varied countryside in one of the nicest and least-visited parts of West Cork. There are a couple of steep hills on it but the views are worth it. The roads here tend to be extremely quiet – you won’t meet many people out on this ride.

Ballingeary is a nice village in a great location, and a good destination for outdoor activities. It has everything you need for great cycling.

Attractions
