Annascaul walks is a small friendly walking club in the heart of the Dingle Peninsula, where brooding mountains, stunning coastlines and fast flowing rivers provide magnificent year round walking. The club embodies the adventurous spirit the friendly humour and the co-operative nature of Annascaul’s famous son, Tom Crean the antarctic explorer.
The club holds two scheduled walks each Sunday, meeting at Hanafins bar on the main street. We extend a warm welcome to individuals and clubs of all ages and abilities to join us on one of our walks or to follow one of the many trailed walks in the area.
For more details on the walks, plenty of photos or to join, check out the website.
Its still early in the season so I decided to take advantage of the bright sunny morning and head to Inch beach for a walk. Beata kindly offered to cook breakfast and look after our 8 guests. The road behind our house leads up the ‘Maum’ (meaning mountain pass) as its known locally and down the winding roads to Inch. I love walking this way because my own grandfather was born in a small cottage on the top of the hill, and often think this is what he would have spent his youth doing. The walk takes about 45 – 50 minutes from Annascaul Village to Greenes Cafe Bistro at the Old Strand Hotel at Inch.
