Section 7 of the Sheep’s Head Way takes you down to the coast and fishing spurs at Tra Ruaim and Dooneen.
Continuing on from the previous section, the Sheep’s Head Way route turns right off the main road onto a smaller road, signed ‘Trá Ruiam’. Follow the road steeply downhill to the beach and quay where you can take the fishing access loop around Reen headland, or continue left, at marker 360.
Where the path meets the road at marker 378 turn left. Turn right if you want to explore Dooneen headland and quay
The trail follows the small roadway back up hill to join the main road again where you turn right along the road for about 1.4km. At marker 382 take a right turn across a cattle grid and down a farm track, left across fields and then down to the strand.
Follow the trail markers through a private garden to cross a stone flag bridge over the stream. Go straight across a quiet road and through gates into another small private area, cross to the far corner where the trail continues.
At marker 403 you turn left up the road and then turn right onto the main road and into the village of Kilcrohane.
Continue straight through the village to start section 8 of the Sheep’s Head Way.
