Glengarriff Tunnels Walk

Glengarriff Tunnels Walk – From the Tunnels to the Glen

Join us for the Glengarriff Tunnels Walk as we hike ‘From the Tunnels to the Glen’ on Sunday December 5th

While the road from Glengarriff’s famous tunnels to the village is closed for road works, we’re taking the unique opportunity to walk the scenic route from the tunnels to the village as a community. So why not join us?

Enjoy stunning vistas as the road winds along the mountaintops, with bird’s eye views over Glengarriff and Bantry Bay before taking part in the festivities as we switch on the new lights on Glengarriff village’s Christmas tree.
