A fine loop walk

One can also access Gleninagh via the excellent Black head loop walk (Route 37) in Helen Fairbairn's great book Ireland's best walks. "" Starting from the church in Fanore continue east for approx 3.5km on a minor road until you meet a marker for the Burren way leading up a stone passage to the left. Continue up this path until it levels out and then turn left over a stone wall to strike out cross country for Gleninagh approx 2.5km away, which can clearly be seen roughly northwest. Pleasant walking alternating between limestone pavement and grass. Sea views open up on arrival which if you''re lucky will include Galway city, and the Bens and the Maamturks off in Connemara. To complete the circuit leave the trig and head northwest to the neolithic cairn of Dobhach Brainin on point 314, with the Aran islands now taking centre stage. From this point your concentration levels are tested as you search for easier descent points through the cliffs but nothing major. Continue to the Iron age fort of Cathair Dhúin Irghuis and drop steeply to the grass track already mentioned and swing left to return to Fanore.
