From Bandon, get onto the R603 Kilbrittain road.
Follow this about 10km to Kilbrittain, go through the village and out towards the coast.
After about 3km turn right on the R600, signposted to Timoleague. The Pink is just past the beach at the top of the hill.
From Kinsale & the east...
Head west from Kinsale on the R600. This twists and turns, but is signposted all along the way.
At first signs are for Ballinspittle. Once through there, continue to follow the R600, now towards Timoleague and Clonakilty.
After about 5km it is signed left across the causeway bridge. Then it is just past the beach up the hill to The Pink. (See our short video of the route at right.)
From the south...
Unless you are a strong swimmer, you'll need a boat.
From Cork city...
There are two options: via Bandon or via Kinsale.
For Bandon, take the N71 from the Bishopstown roundabout on the South Ring Road. Then see directions from Bandon, above.
To go via Kinsale, head to the airport from the Kinsale Road roundabout, then follow the R600.
Both routes are similar time and distance – the choice depends on which is the better starting point.
