The Blackwater Valley Cycle Route is a most interesting route that starts in the historic heritage town of Youghal, County Cork and ends in Killarney, County Kerry. You can of course join the route anywhere. The route first runs northwest towards Fermoy and the Blackwater and then generally west towards Killarney.

The route is divided into four sections and the end point of these sections has been influenced by the availability of overnight accommodation in the general area.

Please note that this is not an official route, and it is not signposted as a cycling route or mapped.
