What to do in Annascaul

 

Not many know about  Brackloon – 3 Peaks of the Annascaul Walks 

One of the walks of Annascaul

Annascaul Walks is a  great community group. If you are looking for things to do  while at Inch Beach  this year I  suggest  you  check out the  Brackloon 3 Peaks  Walk in Annascaul. Besides the Annascaul River Walk,  the Brackloon loop walk  is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. When the weather is good then visibility of the Dingle and Ineragh peninsula will be great. You will be able to see all the way to Killarney. Furthermore, you can see all the way along the Iveragh Peninsula towards Kells and Cuas Crom.

How far is Inch from Annascaul ?

 Inch is only 6.5 kms from Annascaul. If you are looking for things to do when visiting Inch Beach this year I  guarantee you will totally enjoy the Brackloon walk. Great as a family excursion from Inch and it is the ideal  chance to  take in a moderate walk. Park anywhere in Annascaul, do the walk and then head for food in any of the cafes in the village. Annascaul Cafe and Pottery is one such location. The Brackloon walk itself is a  7 km  loop walk and takes in the 3 Peaks of Annascaul, The 3 Peaks Brackloon ridge,  Brackloon Mountain Peak at  270m above sea level and  Knockafeehane at 301m in height. The immediate views will include the entirety of the  Slieve Mish mountains, Dingle Bay and Inch Beach. Breathtaking !

THE FOLKLORE OF ANNASCAUL IS A LITTLE SAD

Annascaul is a small village on the Dingle peninsula. The folklore of the village is a little sad in that CúChulainn fought and killed Feirdia to win the love of the beautiful Scáil. However Scáil did not love  CúChulainn  and she continued to love Feirdia  after he died. In fact the tale has a  Hamletian,  Ophelia  quality to  it in that Scáil drowned herself in the river after her beau  perished..’
