Cahore Point Trail
Cahore Point, County Wexford, Ireland
The Cahore Point Trail is a new cliff trail developed by Wexford County Council and the Ballygarrett Tidy Towns group. The walk is 2.4 km long (almost 5 km of a looped cliff walk), starting at Cahore Point Trail and linking up with the nearby Old Bawn Beach. It is the idyllic trail to explore North Wexford’s stunning coastline, all while stretching your legs and breathing in the fresh, salty coastal air.
The trail itself is wide and level, meaning anyone from a beginner to an experienced trekker can enjoy the relaxing walk along the route. Can’t get enough of the beach? The Cahore Point Trail will spoil you with several gorgeous sandy beaches along the way – Old Bawn Beach, Morriscastle Strand, Ballinoulart Beach, Ballyteige Bay Beach – you can continue walking right along the county’s scenic coastline for miles.
That’s not all there is to see on the cliff walk. On a clear day in Cahore, you can see as far as Wicklow Head from the coast. The magnificent Cahore Castle is also visible along the route. The Tudor Gothic country house is certainly worth stopping by to marvel at.
After almost 5 km of a looped cliff walk, avid walkers are bound to be peckish. Luckily, The Strand Cahore is conveniently located for visitors to stop by and refuel with a hot meal or drink. Situated at Cahore Point, you can sit back and take in the stunning views of the sea from the comfort of the restaurant. On a fine day sit outside and enjoy a gorgeous pizza or a buffalo burger from a seasonal menu that featured the best of local producers.
