The following galleries are of photos from hill walks we have taken over the past couple of years. Some are part of the National Loop Walks.
In the 6th century St. Finbarr founded a hermitage on an island in Gouganebarra Lake, part of the source of the River Lee. The name Gougane Barra comes from the Irish, Guagán Barra, meaning 'Finbarr's cleft'. He would later take a boat downstream to Cork where he would found his famous teaching monastery and ultimately the city of Cork. This walk follows the ridge above the lake and the National Park, affording views north into Kerry and West to the sea.
