The Seven Heads Long Loop Walk is a spectacular moderate to strenuous 2 day (48 km) coastal walking route around the Seven Heads Peninsula located on the coast between Kinsale and Clonakilty in West Cork, Ireland. This is one of Ireland's best coastal walks with many places of interest and fantastic scenery to keep you busy.

Typically the entire route is broken down into 2 stages of approximately 25km each day but you can equally complete the walk in any number of stage or cut short some sections to complete the walk in one long day. We have broken the route into smaller stages to allow everyone irrespective of fitness or time available to experience a great and varied walk.

At all times, our maps and App should be used in conjunction with proper map and compass navigation techniques.

      Thanks Tomás, you’re correct, I have changed that now. I used to live in Kinsale so maybe I was missing the place when adding that walk 🙂
