West Cork hosts the longest touring route along the The Wild Atlantic Way making Dunmanway way an ideal touring base to visit some of the the 159 Discovery Points in West Cork.
Dunmanway has a colourful history and a range of activities for visitors. The town is encompassed by spectacular scenery, with hills and lakes to the North, South and West and can lay claim to being “The Gateway to The Mountains”. As such it is ideal for hill walking, kayaking, fishing, cycling and horse-riding.
The local recreational grounds boast a 25 metre public swimming pool, an 18-hole pitch and putt course, children’s’ playground, tennis courts, an astro turf soccer pitch and an outdoor gym. Like other parts of County Cork, road bowling is a popular sport in the surrounding area, and the All-Ireland road bowling championships took place in Dunmanway in July 2011.
