Walk Details

Soak up some of the stunning coastline of the Wild Atlantic Way with this 2.6 mile walk. We start by heading north, following the sound of the crashing waves.

This is a great walk offering breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. As it expands out in front of you, you get an idea of just how vast it is. Take in all of that Vitamin Sea! Our walk takes us to the beloved landmark of the Inishcrone Pier. Here you can take a moment to pause – listen to the soundscape, watch fishing boats or perhaps spot a local angler casting their line out to sea.

Gently we loop round towards Enniscrone Castle – the ruins of a 17th century fortified house that is part of the rich history of this area (some of which dates back to 5500BC). Perhaps you’ll want to take a moment to explore and just imagine the stories that these ruined buildings could tell of days gone by. This circular walk offers something for everyone and is the perfect way to soak up the charm of this Irish coastal village.
