Short Summary created by three5four0  28 Sep 2011 Park your Car at Cill Rialaig as the road narrows from here, see picture. Here eight ruined cottages were demolished and then reconstructed by the architect Alfred Cochrane with studios to create an International Artists retreat. The promoters ambition was to have an Irish equivalent of the Tate gallery at St Ives in Cornwall. The artists wares are available for purchase at the shop / gallery in Ballinskelligs. You won't miss it, as it is sign posted well!

Starting from Cill Rialaig does add nearly 4km to your walk for Bolus Hill, along a road at that. But the views are good, there is grass along the road and adding a trip out to the barracks & Bolus Head as well makes a fine walk. This is being developed into a way marked way. Info on this & other walks, coffee and postcards are all available from the small cafe & shop on Ballinskelligs beach. (whose location is right on the B in Ballinskelligs Pt on map 83)

Picture: Fence to Bolus Hill
Short but rewarding summit walk
by three5four0  28 Sep 2011 Drove out to Bolus Head and parked in a small lay-by (room for one car only) at 395628 (Point A). Walked a short distance along the road, went through a gate on the right and followed a track up hill to a shallow col between Bolus Hill and the spot height 284. At this col there is a fence with a gate (& way marked way markers), I turned right and followed the the fence up hill, reaching the summit quickly in the teeth of a gale. This small summit, like the others in the Iveragh NW group, gave fine & expansive views of the surrounding coast and hills, with the barracks giving a fine backdrop for those who like their photos in BW!
Point A: V395 628

Scenic Walk at Tip of Iveragh
by ciarraioch  24 Oct 2011 After a wet morning in late August 2009, we parked the car at the small roadside quarry at V414 635 (Point B). Walked out along the road by the Cill Rialaig artist's colony enjoying spectacular views across to Beara. Took the small bohereen which veers off to the right at V394 628 (Point C). Made the short walk up to the col referred to by three5four0. We turned left at this point to take in the seaward summit with great views to the Skelligs and across Fionán's Bay. We retraced our steps to the col and followed the fence, eventually gaining the summit of Bolus mountain itself, short but steep. Nice views back onto Waterville and Iveragh. We made our way cross country from here more or less directly to the starting point. Not sure I would recommend this as there were many fences and the ground was rough. Probably better just to retrace one's steps.
Point B: V414 635 Point C: V394 628
