The Trawlebane walk is a 2.5 hour (8.5km) moderate walk from Glandarta Bridge to the scenic Vaughan’s Pass, passing through lovely and varied countryside and culminating in spectacular views of Bantry Bay. You will pass by the statue of Captain Francis O'Neill who preserved a large part of the Irish traditional musical heritage in Chicago. You will observe the homestead of the Downing sisters and finally you will pass by a megalithic tomb called 'The Queen’s table', as you come in sight of Bantry down below.

You can download free of charge an MP3 audio file which contains a fifteen minute radio programme about the Trawlebane walk, with local heritage, folklore and things to watch out for as you walk.
