Description of Trail

Cosán na Naomh is one of Ireland’s most fascinating and beautiful old pilgrimage roads. It presents no major challenge, even for the casual walker, as it only climbs one hill and otherwise weaves its way gently up and down from the beach at Ceann Trá (Ventry) to the foot of Brandon Mountain. The scenery is spectacular with a constant vista of sea or mountain and often both.
