The Sheep's Head Way is a series of way-marked walking routes on the Sheep's Head Peninsula, West Cork, Ireland.

Starting and ending in the market town of Bantry, the main route cover 90 kilometres (56 miles) around the peninsula. It passes through breathtaking, unspoilt scenery including high ridges up to 365 metres, coastal paths, small roads and boreens with views over Bantry Bay and the Beara to the north and Dunmanus Bay and the Mizen to the south. The routes are clearly marked and are accessible to anyone with basic levels of experience and fitness.

Way-marked loop walks provide shorter routes suitable for easier one-day excursions. Additional routes extend the Sheep's Head Way eastwards to Drimoleague and Kealkil and onto The Mizen at Mount Corin, south-west of Durrus.
