“Walk with us in Glengarriff Woods”


Sunday 13th March sees Irlanda Italiana organise its first walking trip!

“Walk with us in Glengarriff Woods”


promises to be a sociable leisurely 10k stroll along tranquil paths and small roads starting and finishing in the beautiful woods of Glengarriff.


Here are the details for our planned walk.

Sunday morning, 13th March

Meeting outside Cork city library at 9.20am.

Leaving Cork City Library and driving in the direction of Glengarriff at 9.30am sharp.

Upon reaching Glengarriff we will meet in Eccles Hotel Car park at 11am.

Our walk starts from Eccles Hotel Car at 11.15am and we ask all members to heed the instructions of our guide and Irlanda Italiana committee member Frances Kenny, at all times, but particularly at the beginning of the walk.

Everyone should be finished this walk by approx. 2.45pm although some people may be finished earlier depending on participants’ fitness levels. The 3.5 hour estimated duration of this walk is inclusive of a planned lunch break and we ask all participants to bring snacks and drinks for themselves.

Boots are not necessary because we will be mostly using paths and roads but suitable walking shoes/trainers are recommended.

Please remember that Glengarriff is in Ireland – Bring Rain Gear!

If you require a lift or can offer a lift please email Irlanda Italiana at or

Finally, although the route is a much used, safe and accessible route and although we will have our own group guide walking the course with us, a certain level of fitness is required by anyone hoping to participate. All individuals (members or not), choosing to walk with Irlanda Italiana at this event do so at their own risk.
