|Castle Donovan car park
The Castle Donovan Loop Walk is marked by a blue arrow starting at Castle Donovan car park. Pass the Castle to your left continuing along a quiet country road before turning off the road to take a fairly steady climb to the top of Mullaghmesha Mountain. There are spectacular views across Bantry and Dunmanus Bays with breathtaking views over the Kerry mountains and Cork coastline on clear days. Head down by Coomanore Lakes and along a pleasant track to back to the Castle Donovan car park.
