Keep moving in nature

The Ring of Cork is full of stunning outdoor recreational places encouraging you to embrace nature and keep moving for your health and wellbeing.

Here are all of our track & trail locations in the Ring of Cork. You can choose from stunning coastal cliff walks to breath-taking beach and river walks as well as tranquil woodlands where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors whilst walking or cycling. Take time out and listen to leaves crunch beneath your feet and the sound of birds nestled in the trees and notice the beautiful nature that surrounds you.

Outdoor recreation is about being and moving in nature.

Outdoor recreation is for everyone, regardless of fitness level, age, or background and best of all it is free. Outdoor recreation can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve the immune system, prevent illness, and increase life expectancy. Nature and outdoor activities benefit everyone.

Ring of Cork is bursting with spectacular Blue and Green spaces

Decide where your next adventure will be, and better still arrange to explore with a friend to stay connected. Remember, you don’t have to exercise vigorously in order to improve your health.

Instead, try to introduce some light activity where you can and in the daylight preferably. Every little bit does help. The most important thing is to sit less, move more and go outdoors, enjoy the fresh air and take a break from your busy life.

It is recommended that adults are active for 30 minutes each day and children and young persons for one hour.

The trails are suitable for walking and running. Some also suitable for cycling. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash. Remember to practice the Leave no Trace Principles.

Keep moving in nature.
