Turn left onto the side road - You will have passed the junction of the Castletownbere road on the right. The road rises slightly and then a side road to the left is sign posted for the Sheen Falls hotel. Take this road.

Pass the Sheen Falls Hotel on the left.

Sheen Bridge - Cross the narrow bridge over the Sheen River and bear left afterwards.
