This easy forest walk journeys past waterfalls, rock pools and rapids, and presents stunning photographic opportunities. The Clare Glens is a wooded area along the banks of the Clare River, which separates counties Limerick and Tipperary. The scenery is breathtaking, with wild dense forest combined with the calm rushing of the crystal clear waters. The Glens consist of a picturesque red sandstone gorge through which the Clare River flows and displays numerous waterfalls. This loop walk is part of the network of National Looped Walks and are marked using the standard National Looped Walk directional arrows.
