Castle to Castle Walk

castle to castle press photoCastle to Castle – Cork’s most scenic sponsored walk – is taking place on Sunday 22nd June in aid of Irish Guide Dogs and in association with Mourneabbey Community.

This year there are two idyllic routes to choose from. The 5 mile walk runs from Blarney Castle to Rathduff. You will pass an historic round tower and stroll through the townland of Garrycloyne to finish in Rathduff.

For those participating in the 15 mile route, you move on to Mourn Abbey after a short break, crossing Ballyhillogoe and Analeentha. Light refreshments will be served afterwards at the Railway Bar and you’ll have a chance to appreciate the beautiful view of Barrett’s Castle on the hill.

Castle to Castle comes at a hugely important time for Irish Guide Dogs as the national charity aims to train more clients than ever and change lives all around the country. The organisation is more than 80% funded through voluntary donations and events such as these and is looking to increase support in Cork as demand for their services continues to grow.
