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 turning left at St. Patrick’s Church, follow the Green arrows west towards Timoleague, past the ruins of Cloundereen Church. After 6km head south to Courtmacsherry Bay – then return to Kilbrittain along quiet roads with spectacular views over the bays and strands.

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