Local Walks Make Cork’s Best List
Republic Of Work releases a list Corks’ best nature walks which hopefully will be within your 5K zone.
Republic Of Work, Cork’s leading innovation campus based on the South Mall, has compiled a list of Cork’s very best nature walks suggested by their members. It seems the only thing we all have in common these days is that we get out for a long walk on weekends and that's okay. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of Corks’ best nature walks which hopefully will be within your 5km zone. So, get those walking/running shoes on and get out and get active!
Those featuring locally include:
● Carrigaline-to-Crosshaven Greenway
Carrigaline-to-Crosshaven is a fabulous 5km path that runs along the beautiful inlet of Cork Harbour. Home to dozens of little boats and ships you’ll hardly notice the 5K route while taking in such amazing views. In Crosshaven itself you’ll be sure to find some quaint coffee shops for a takeaway coffee for the journey back.
● Kinsale to Charles Fort Coastal Walk
This is a 5.5km route situated along the coast, giving you amazing views of the coastline. Make sure to wrap up though it could be windy!
Blackrock Castle Loop
This 8km loop will take you from Blackrock Castle to Mahon. This is a mainly flat walk so if you’re not into inclines this is a perfect walk for you or with the family. With pretty scenery along the way, you can’t go wrong really!
● Garryduff Woods
Near Douglas, this 4km loop is perfect to bring the kids as you’re sure to spot some wildlife along the way. A very small portion is steep so it’s perfect for tiring the little ones out!
Others to make the list, though a little outside our area, include:
● Gougane Barra Forest park
● Ballincollig Gunpowder trails
● Blarney Castle Loop
● The Lough
