Cuas na nEighe - route

The walk starts in the public car park above Clogher Beach. This car park offers stunning views of Inis Tuaisceart, especially on a stormy day, and also acts as a trailhead for the magically named Cosán Chuas na nEighe which is situated between Ballyferriter & Dunquin. Walk back up the road from the car park and turn left at the Blue & White markers. The view as you walk along the cliff above the beach of An Tiaracht and Inis Tuaisceart is stunning. Along the cliff are loose stones of different colours and shapes.This section is called Faill na Saor.Further on is Poll na gCaorach (blowhole) and Poll na Tóirní and Cuas na Nao (a reference to a type of boat pre-dating the naomhógs).Continuing northwards and with Ceann Sibéal towering over you to the left, a little gravel beach comes into view below you, Cuaisín na Miongán Buí, (inlet of the yellow periwinkles). A little further on is a little slipway, Cé Bhaile an Chalaidh. For the final part turn right and follow a track back westwards to the Ballyferriter/Dunquin road (R559), and take in the views on a short walk back to the carpark and beach. This is a wonderful walk and suitable for practically everyone. Take time to go down to the beach and on the right hand side look for the approx 400 million year old fossils, clearly visible on the rocks and cliffs by the beach.
