Black Head Loop Walk is a stenuous 5.5 hour (23.5 km) loop walking route on the Burren Way, county Clare in the west of Ireland. This walk has great and varied scenery along the coast and inland with great things to see like Black Head Lighthouse and the stone fort of Cathair Dhuin Irghuis, a "stone-age fort" perched above Black Head in the Burren.

This walk is only a short drive from Tralee and there are also many other shorter walks in the area. Use our Map of Ireland and Sat Nav tool to get directions to the start point of this walk and use our detailed map and GPS on our ActiveME App to find and follow the walking route and keep on track.
