The estuary is on your left as you move out from Timoleague. But don't forget to look to your right as well. There are ruins of another abbey along the way and you will also see some attractive farmhouses.
And rural scenes like the one below. The calf was still pretty shaky on the legs but managed to get his feed.
You might work up an appetite while walking and, if you do the full walk, 10km return, you'll deserve a good meal and one is available at Dillon's in Timoleague.
