I can’t believe it was only last year that I finally walked up to The Caves of Kesh/Keash. It really is a very special place and one that isn’t as popular as some of the other Sligo walks.
I really don’t know why though because out of all the walks I’ve done this would probably be my favourite. The views are just stunning. I went up as the sun was beginning to set, and it was magical.
I did get a bit scared standing in the big cave on my own though – but that’s because I have a vivid imagination and am always expecting someone to jump out at me!
The walk itself wasn’t too bad at all, it was mostly flat apart from one steep bit where I did struggle a little bit. That’s only because I’m not fit though. Next time I go up I’m hoping to fly up it – not literally 😉
You can continue on to top where you will see the Keshcorran cairn, I didn’t go that far though. I stopped at the caves. The caves are hard to miss as they are such a spectacular sight. Take the road from Ballymote heading to Boyle and they are just on the left before you get to the village of Keash.
