There is a small car park next to the start line, which is enough for the small crowd that does this run, but parking would be difficult if there were more people. No toilets available at the course.
This is an extremely varied course in a wooded nature reserve. Constant twists and turns, hills and flats, all the time surrounded by streams and woodland, almost like an obstacle course. Not a course for a PB but a very enjoyable run. One negative point was that the course goes onto a public road for a short distance.
The very pretty village of Glengarriff is nearby, where there are several options for a post run coffee.
There is something special about West Cork. The scenery is incredible and it has its own micro-climate; it really feels like a world apart. Glengarriff was for a long time the home of Maureen O’Hara, and you can see why.
