8km North of Fermoy off main Dublin Road, Kilworth grew as a staging-post for Bianconi's horse coaches in the 18th c., and was the main town in the area before Fermoy developed. Along this route Willy Brennan the highwayman (`Brennan on the Moors') earned his living the easy way. The 18th c. Market House in the square is now an excellent craft centre. The Catholic Church here is one of the oldest continually used in Ireland. Glenseskin Wood offers well-signposted walks of 2km, 6.4km and 9.6km, from the car park with its beautiful stream and picnic lawn rising to the fine views at Gorse Lodge. There are well-surfaced pathways and rustic bridges. There is much natural animal and plant life.
