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) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/782/comment/5541/
