Kilbrittain Trails Estuary Walk
Kilbrittain, Co. Cork
Kilbrittain is a pretty little village situated between Bandon, Kinsale and Clonakilty with great woodland walks, an ancient inhabited Castle and spectacular beaches just a mile or so away.

Starting at the Village Park walk west through the village, turn left at St. Patrick’s Church and follow the blue arrows along quiet country roads, past rolling hills and lovely views of Coolmain and Harbour View Beaches, returning to the village to the Castle Gates via the Woodland Trail back to the Village Park.

Estuary Walk is one of a series of walks in the Kilbrittain village area. There is also the Castle Walk, Rathclaren Walk and the Kiln Walk.

Kilbrittain situated midway between Kinsale & Clonakilty in this scenic part of West Cork has many sandy beaches and castles to offer the visitor. It is a mecca for walkers, cyclists, water sport enthusiasts, bird watchers, fishermen and horse riders. The village is home to the skeleton of a 90 foot fin whale, 2 castles, woodland walks, sandy beaches and views to die for. There are ancient churches, old graveyards and holy wells. The sand dunes and the salt marshes are designated areas of special conservation. And there is also a very special 1916 Garden of Remembrance in the Village itself.

The playground is especially popular. There is also The McCarthy Maze, The West Cork Secret Garden and The West Cork Equine Centre.
