Dunboy Woods Loop Walk

Dunboy Woods

2 miles outside Castletownbere is the famous Dunboy Castle and at this location you can park your car at the car park by O’Sulllivan Bere Castle walk along the coast through the woods to the Harbour’s Mouth where you have great views of Bere Island and the light house. You then rise through a farmers track back on to public road for 500 metres and into the woods which links you back to the car park. Details below.

Loop Guiding 

A-B. Starting from the mapboard in the car park follow the green (and purple) arrows along the forestry road back towards the exit. The purple arrows are for the longer Bullig Bay Loop. After 200m you reach a Y-junction where the Bullig Bay Loop veers right - but you veer left onto a forestry track.

B-C. Over the next 400m the loop descends gently through woodland to reach a 3-way junction where you rejoin the purple loop on its return and turn left.

C-A. Continue to follow the green and purple arrows along a woodland track along the edge of Bullig Bay - and enjoy the 500m back to the trailhead.
