One of the most popular walks locally is the beautiful walk from Kilnagleary, near Carrigaline, right into Crosshaven, with the Owenabue River by your side all the way to the harbour. Most of this walk runs along the old Cork to Crosshaven railway line, which operated from 1904 to 1932.
When in Cork you are never far from a lovely beach or sheltered cove for swimming and Crosshaven is no exception! Myrtleville and Fountainstown are probably the best known beaches locally but there are other equally lovely places to enjoy the sea at Church Bay and Weaver's Point close by.
