The Seven Heads Peninsula extends from Timoleague village through Courtmacsherry, around the rugged cliffs and shore line towards Dunworley Bay and on to Barrryscove, Ardgehane and Ballinglanna. A touristic walking route of the peninsula was launched in 1998. The walk embraces a very interesting and varied territory in the course of its entire distance of approx. 42.5km around the peninsula.
The Seven Heads Walks booklet can be purchased in most retailers and newsagents in the West Cork area. The booklet details the various walking routes that extend from Timoleague village through Courtmacsherry, around the rugged cliffs and shore line to Dunworley and on through Barrryscove and Ardgehane to Aghafore and Barryshall and then back to Timoleague. It also provides the reader with a detailed history of the area and the various flora and fauna to watch out for while on the route.
