Found some super walks in the Glengariff Wood's/nature reserve. Esknamucky walk is 3.5 kms long with lots of hills and steps and Broadmeadow walk is about the same length but flat. Well maintained and no very busy. Great place to get out and about.

West Cork is highly recommended, but Glengarriff Nature Reserve is a fabulous example of what sets it apart from other locations. If you enjoy walking and exploring off the beaten track this will blow you away. Abundant choice of walks with differing degrees of difficulty...More

We visited in the late evening and really enjoyed the peace and beauty of this small woodland right beside the town of Glengarrif. The blue pool is very picturesque and the departure point for a ferry to Garnish island.

We stopped all too briefly before dinner, but spent more time than expected, walking up to the waterfall, building stone stacks in the river and skimming stones. Very beautiful and peaceful place.
