A section of old disused railway between the scenic villages of Drimoleague and Baltimore which is currently not developed as a walking/cycle route.

Drimoleague Railway Junction

The Railway line from Dunmanway to Drimoleague, and eventually to Bantry was opened in July 1877.  The entire West Cork railway system was eventually closed by CIE in March 1961. This disused railway has the potential to be developed as a walking/cycle route in the future.
