Lough Hyne Walk

Enjoy a walk up Knockomagh Hill, overlooking Lough Hyne Marine Nature Reserve. Follow the nature trail to the top and experience one of the most beautiful views in West Cork.




Knockomagh Hill is 197m high and the walk takes about an hour, depending on your level of fitness. The view of Lough Hyne lake from the top, and the surrounding countryside, makes the climb well worthwhile.
