Beautiful varied walk, you're waking through some open fields mind that may have livestock within them

beautiful october day. 2 hours to summit

Full loop is great. Beautiful views. Varied terrain. Will do again.

Good views, not a very difficult trail.

A great hike with spectacular views (especially if you hit it when the weather is good!!)

My own favourite destination here is the native woodland at the end of the point,especially in May, bluebells time. However, people with me are always fascinated by the remains of the Norman settlement. The Lough Ree waterside part of the walk near the start is very scenic. A visit to the old medieval hospital site also very interesting.

Three recent downsides. One is the signage has become damaged or even vanished. Two, some of the direction markers have gone from the wooded area so you may go off trail. Three, due to irresponsibility of dog owners there is a total ban on dogs now. If you are with a dog, even small dog, you will be seen and escorted off of the trail.

We went to the cross and then followed the upper walk. Later on we joined the lower walk to get back. The weather was wonderful and it made all the difference


Very fun! We went a few years ago in April and it was gorgeous. Really was 4 seasons in a day as they say. Hot and humid, then cool and rainy. The hike itself isn't very strenuous, although the trail was washed out in some places and we had to take a detour, but it was still loads of fun. This was awhile back though, so it may be fixed by now. There were two chances to take side trails: one down to a beautiful beach with large cliffs, and one up to a cross overlooking the ocean.
