The Sheep's Head Peninsula has a rough charm to it – and yes, there are plenty of sheep. The road west from Durrus passes through Ahakista, which has a few pubs. At the back, it has flowering gardens which go down to the waterfront. Beyond Ahakista the landscape gets more barren and rocky as the road gets narrower and harder. A link road with terrific views, called the Goat's Path Rd, runs between Kilcrohane and Gortnakilly (on the south and north coast’s respectively) over the western flank of Mt. Seefin (345m), which offers an exhilarating 1 km stride to the summit.

Hillside Walks. Sheepshead Peninsula Reviews & Ratings
The Sheep’s Head Way is our 6th European Hike and this one was by far our most enjoyable, thanks to Hillside Walking Tours. Charlie is the go to, tour guide and organizer. He totally set up our self walk from organizing great accommodation, restaurants, transportation info, as well as insight into the hike, history and points of interest. If you want the best hiking experience in a group or self walk, we highly recommend Hillside Walking Tours. This moderate hike was awe inspiring with scenery both rugged and magnificent! Thank you Charlie.
The sheepshead walk is a must in Ireland. Breathtaking.
