Aran Lodge is ideally situated for enjoying the two walks that are recognised by the National Waymarked ways Committee in the Bantry Area. These are the Sheep's Head Walk  and  the Beara Way Walk

The Sheep's Head Way has its own logo, showing two sheep locking horns. This was taken from a carved stone which is passed near Bantry by walkers following the route. The stone is also notable for showing the Sheep's Head Logoearliest surviving representation in stone carving of a boat in Ireland. One of the features of the Sheep's Head Way is that the waymarking has been accomplished using oak posts and stone markers, in keeping with the natural surroundings of the peninsula.


The Beara Way is also a National Cycling Route and for most parts is on country roads. The route travels along the entire Beara Peninsula passing through all the towns and villages along the way. The entire route is 138 kms. There is no start or finish so you can join the route in any town and village on the peninsula. The route is sign-posted with a logo and a bicycle symbol
