Ballingeary Cycle Loop

The road to Ballingeary

This short loop 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.

Ballingeary is a nice village in a great location, and a good destination for outdoor activities.
