About Ireland

The trail’s base camp is situated on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork, on the south-west coast of Ireland. It sits on the western slope of the Sugarloaf Mountain, 800 metres away from the nearest occupied house, and it has open access to the Caha mountain range. This is a very remote area, high above the Atlantic Ocean and populated only by sheep. The old cottage, which serves as the base camp, is situated on hilly farmland. It has not been lived in since the late 90’s.
