After meeting at Hanafin’s bar Annascaul at 10:00 we will drive to Dingle and on to Brandon Creek near Cuas and leave some cars for the return journey.  We then drive to our starting point which is at the school near Ballydavid.  Our route is first along the surfaced road and then along the grassy coastal path overlooking Smerwick Harbour.  We then ascend the incline to the tower above Ballydavid Head which is our highest point.    Having rested here we then descend again berore climbing up to the second high point of the walk,  Beenmore which is almost as high as the tower at Ballydavid Head.  Wonderful views towards Brandon and Smerwick Harbour will be enjoyed all along this magnificent walk.
