Section 11 of the Sheep’s Head Way starts at the Barnageehy parking area. Cross the main road to join the smaller road opposite. The trail leaves the road to the left after a short walk at marker 642.
The track leads you to the busy main road (R586) which runs from Bantry to Drimoleague. Cross over with care and pick up the trail on the opposite side. The path climbs towards Vaughan’s Pass. To the left, almost all of the Sheep’s Head peninsula can be seen. The Eastern trail routes towards Drimoleague, Mealagh Valley, and Kealkill lead off to the east at the parking area. To return to Bantry follow the road downhill into the outskirts of the town.
After passing the hospital, turn sharp left at the junction, into Scart Road which takes you uphill onto the Rope Walk. You leave the town behind as you stay on this road until you take a right turn towards the IT Centre where you then turn left through a gate at marker 675.
You are now in the grounds of Bantry House. Follow the path down hill to pass the house on your left. Continue down the drive to the gatehouse. Pass through the arch, turn right and your are back in Wolfe Tone Square.
Your have reached the end of the Sheep’s Head Way!
