Starting at 9 a.m. from The Manor Inn, Killorglin

“C” WALK – Seefin:  Easy Walk approx 3 hrs duration.

Starting at 10 a.m. from The Manor Inn, Killorglin

Seefin Mountain circuit is an easy to moderate walking route to the summit of Seefin Mountain (493m) and back along the same route with great views of the sourrounding countryside near Glenbeigh. You can enjoy a fantastic view of Rossbeigh beach and strand, Caragh Lake, and Caherciveen.
