Pulleen Loop - Ardgroom
A-B. Starting from the trailhead at Cuas Quay follow the blue arrow onto the tarred road and turn left.
After 200m you reach a grassy track onto open ground on your left. Turn left here.
B-C. Follow the grassy track across open ground and join a line of old stone walls. Keeping close to the walls, watch out for a variety of walled holdings, sheep pens and ruins of homesteads as you make your way to Dogs Point.
C-D. From Dogs Point sweep left to join the return section along the coastline (reaching 50m above sea level) and enjoy the breathtaking views over Kenmare Bay. In the distance the coastline of County Kerry is visible. Continue to follow the purple arrows to reach Coosmore Caves - well worth a visit.
D-A. From the caves enjoy the 250m back to the trailhead.
