This loop starts at the Post Office in Skibbereen and passes close to Lough Abisdealy on its way to the coast at Tragumna beach from where it tours along the headlands, bays and promontories of this part of West Cork to Castletownsend and back to Skibbereen. There are marvellous views out over the Atlantic. It includes several steep and some very steep hills and care is required on some sections and at some junctions.

Views are spectacular lovely loop but TOUGH HILLS!
I dropped down to the pier in Castletownshend and the climb out was animal!! But so worth the sit and view from pier.
Roads quiet so very enjoyable cycle
