There are many nice walks around the Ballymaloe gardens, woodlands and farm, these are all marked on a detailed map which is available at reception.
For those looking for a longer walk we recommend the Ballycotton Cliff Walk which starts in the fishing village of Ballycotton, about 4km from Ballymaloe, and the walk continues for about 9km along a goat-track, with safety fencing where it is needed, and plenty of benches along the way at spots with better views. There are also several long beaches that are good for walking, especially at low tide. Please ask reception for more details about these.
Transport to Ballycotton and local beaches can be arranged for guests who require it, we would also be happy to make a light packed lunch for guests who will be out for several hours.
