“Peaceful Walk”
Review of Corrin Hill

Corrin Hill
Ranked #1 of 8 things to do in Fermoy
Attraction details
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Corrine Hill is a lovely walk through the forest there are trails up to Corrin Cross where on a clear day there is a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. The walk is an easy enough trek and can be done at a pace to suit the person / persons who are exploring the area. It is not unknown for deer to be seen in the area as well as other wildlife.

A great walk for the family.
Great fun for energetic kids and the view from the top is great.
Do wear boots as it is a forest walk and can be a little muddy and rough underfoot.

Nice hill walk with great views looking over Fermoy and other sights. It's free to get in and great place to cycle on its many tracks.

What was once a tranquil, beautiful woodland walk has been largely destroyed by the Forresty Commission harvesting trees during late spring 2013.

Large swathes of what was mature evergreen woodland has been cut down and removed leaving almost the entire area stripped and empty. The extent of the logging is even visible miles away and it’s a pity. Commercial interests rather than scenery continues to determine much of Ireland’s woodland future and Corrin is no exception.

Walking, biking and orienteering trails remain as do the incredibly garish and intrusive Stations of the Cross (how these got planning permission to be placed in this area is beyond me) However, with the area extensively de-forrested, Corrin has become simply ugly and un-attractive for a woodland walk and will remain so for a decade or more.

Suggest you try the Watergrasshill woodland walk instead.

The cross ast the top of Corrin Hill was erected by the Magniers in 1932. It's a landmark for miles around. The 'Stations of the Cross' are a bit tacky, and the climb is challenging. Roads up to the cross can be a little muddy in wet weather but nothing that a good pair of shoes or boots can't handle. The view from the top is fantastic, especially in the late evening. It's easy to walk to the top and back from the main entrance gate in 30 minutes.
