Fastnet Trails

Fastnet Trails

Fastnet Trails is a system of long and short nature walks set up by the Fastnet Trails Group in conjunction with Aughadown, Ballydehob and Schull Community Councils. This package of scenic walks for families and enthusiasts lies close to the coast of Roaring Water Bay and covers a total distance of 80km.

The Fastnet Trails  Facebook Page was set up to promote the working trail loops in Lisheen, Ballydehob, the Butter Road and Schull. Photographs, videos and an account of events are posted on behalf of Fastnet Trails in the area by Margaret McSweeney.

Ballydehob, the Gateway to the Mizen Peninsula in West Cork is the best of many worlds. It's rural charms, rich heritage and natural beauty epitomise the traditional Ireland that visitors love so much. It is also unabashedly and confoundingly modern in its diversity of people and trade. The area is well known for its artists, writers and alternative types. Now it is home to a growing number of innovators and trend setters, some who found it and couldn't leave, many who left and came back, and mostly those who held down the fort for the rest of us. Our home is rich in tradition, culture, music and craft nestled on Roaringwater Bay along the Wild Atlantic Way. Have we got a story for you! Pull up a stool.

Carpool request:
"Hi guys, we have recently moved to Ballydehob and still finding our feet a little. Hoping you might be able to put out a post on our behalf. My husband fractured his elbow over the weekend and is in a cast for 6 weeks. As a result he’s not able to drive to work in Dunmanway. We were hoping there might be someone from Ballydehob making the same journey that he could carpool with for a few weeks. He usually works 9-6 but this would be flexible if the timings were close. We’d contribute towards petrol and it would be a massive help. Happy to share mobile number if there’s anyone who may be able to help." Signed Ash Drummond
