Part of the Beara-Breifne Way, this is a 50km walking route set in the heart of Cork's Irish speaking region. The route links with the Beara Way to the west and with the North West Cork Way to the north. It passes through the famous Irish-speaking area of west Cork, rich in folklore, traditional music and storytelling.

It crosses two mountain ranges, through glacial valleys and wooded pastures. Arriving in Ballyvourney (Baile Bhuirne), walkers pass the famous church built by St Gobnait in the 6th century.

From here, the route goes up the shoulder of Mullaghanish, crossing into County Kerry for 1 km before dropping down into Millstreet.
