I recently uploaded The Anne Valley Nature Walk, #4579 which goes inland from Annestown Beach. My later objective was to extend this walk to include a coastal path from Kilfarrasy to Annestown. I achieved it, but can't recommend it!
Kilfarrasy Strand on the Copper Coast is itself well worth a visit. The cliffs have layers of rock that are clearly delineated by age, with the oldest layer being 460 million year old and dating from the time when Ireland was in the Southern Hemisphere. All is explained in the interpretative panel located at the access to the strand.
Starting at the strand, it became obvious that a walk at sea level in the direction of Annestown was not possible, so I opted for the headland via Kilfarrasy Hill. However, this is private agricultural land with electric fencing everywhere, including along the headland. After 1 km, it was necessary to divert inland to get around a gully, through a farmyard and onto the public road. I then had to remain on the public road because of "no access" signs, and the road goes further inland before a left turn for Annestown.
Curiously, there is a rock climbing place called Larry the Goats in this "forbidden zone". I'd love to know how it is accessed. Linkback:
