To follow the Sheep’s Head Way Section 8 route, start walking out of the village along the main road eastwards. You pass the Church on your left and the Old Creamery and Producers Market on your right. About 0.5km. along the road you will see the way marker indicating a path through fields to the right. A small track leads you down to the coast at Farranamanagh
The track continues on between the sea and Farranamanagh Lake until you cross a stone flag bridge. The path climbs uphill and away from the coast to meet with the main road again at Dromnea parking area.
Cross the road to follow the trail. The path turns to the right along the old road between Kilcrohane and Ahakista. Take the left turn to the Stone Circle then continue on until you meet the road at marker 459, turn right, downhill.
The Sheep’s Head Way trail goes off the road to the left after 330 meters at marker 462. This is the start of section 9.
The road leads into Ahakista, so if you wish to break your walk here continue to the road junction and take a right turn down hill to the next junction. Here turn left and walk a short distance to find the Ahakista Trailhead.
