The Dingle Peninsula – access issue
Earlier this year, 2015, The Collins Press published The Dingle Peninsula – A Walking Guide. On page 68 the description of the start of Route 14, Ballyduff to Anascaul, should now read as follows due to a landowner objecting to the use of the initial 150m of boreen/laneway from Glennahoo Bridge by walkers:
Start: Parking spaces at Ballyduff or An Baile Dubh graveyard at Q 5407010100, just off the R560, due east of Cloghane village.
Finish: South Pole Inn, Anascaul Village
Walk back towards the R560 from the graveyard and turn right. Walk around 500m along the road and cross the bridge over the Glennahoo River. Take care while walking along the R560 as it is a busy road with no verges. After crossing the bridge, continue along the R560 for another 300m. Leave the R560 and turn right into a track at Q5460010350. There is an old farmhouse with dormer windows and a sloped flat roof extension at the track entrance. Continue south-eastward for around 150m along this track to reach a T-junction.
Turn right there and follow a lane southwardsto Maghanaboe at the head of the valley. The Glennahoo River twists and turns along the valley floor to the right. The narrow valley, some 3km long, is flanked by a sweep of steep slopes clothed with banks of scree.
