What Lies Beneath is better than What Lies Up Top

You can drive over this. A very minor public road connects Kilfarassy with the R675 northeast of Annestown. This road crests the exact top of Kilfarassy Hill. A much better way of doing it is to park at Kilfarassy beach, walk to the western side of the carpark and take the obvious path uphill along by the cliffs. Boulder clay constitutes much of the cliffs around here. There’s plenty of erosion so mind how you go.
When you get in line with the promontory fort as marked on the, ahem, promontory on OS sheet 82, turn due north. The aforementioned road, and the top of Kilfarassy Hill, lie a couple of hundred yards away across fields easily negotiated – only one small fence to cross. Then climb the gate to the road. In our case a kind and considerate farmer opened the gate as we arrived – how’s that for service? You can then walk down around the twisting narrow laneway of a road to the car waiting for you at the beach carpark.
To be honest, Kilfarassy Hill is not worth the diversion up from the cliffs. Like nearby Westown Hill, it’s set too far back from the sea, and too low-lying, to be truly coastal. You’d be better off ignoring this hill and stretching your legs out west towards Annestown. This is a spectacular clifftop walk; the islands, rocks, caves, stacks and sea arches of the fabulous Copper Coast (one of Ireland’s best kept secrets) all around and beneath you, from the east into the west. Don’t bother going down into Annestown – it’s one of Ireland’s few villages with no bar so there can’t possibly be any reason to go there. Best turn around and repeat your walk, this time coming out of the west towards Kilfarassy, and re-treat yourself to the thrilling seascapes as you return to your transport. Linkback:
