The Sheep’s Head Way walking route forms part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way and it focuses on the famous Sheep’s Head peninsula in West Cork between Bantry Bay and Dunmanus Bay.

The main Sheep’s Head Way walk is about 93km long. It begins in the historic West Cork market town of Bantry. From there you can hike right to the end of the Sheep’s Head peninsula where you’ll find the Sheep’s Head lighthouse and stunning views northwards across Bantry bay to the Beara peninsula and south across Dunmanus bay to the Mizen peninsula.
