The Sheeps Head Way route from Kilcrohane to Glanlough is a moderate 3-5 hour (13km). This is the western section of the Sheeps Head Way national long distance waymarked trail on the stunning and wild Sheeps Head Peninsula, West Cork, Ireland. The trail follows the Wild Atlantic Way scenic driving route.

As part of the West Cork Walking Tour after breakfast you will be taken to Kilcrohane to walk the Seefin Ridge eastwards to Glanlough. Passing by the remains of the bardic school and St Crohan's earliest church, you will ascend to the heights of Seefin where the wild goats may be seen. The views from this ridge were described by poet Seamus Heaney ..."land, sea and water in extremity" and the views in all directions are magnificent. In the late afternoon you will arrive at Charlie and Julie Anne's Bed and Breakfast having worked up a hearty appetite for a good dinner once again in a local restaurant.
