Strokestown, County Roscommon Map

Hiking quite accessible for families. The beginning of the course is well marked, you have passages to pass the fences. However arrived in the small forest after the castle, no more suitcase and you find yourself quickly out of the way. However, you just have to follow the point on your application and it is done very well. Pretty landscapes in passing, mixing great plains, forest, and lake.

I did not get a chance to do this walk but I wanted to infom dog owers that strictly no dogs allowed on the trail as there is sign everywhere stating this

This trail has been one of my favourite hiking trails so far!! I really enjoyed! Beautiful landscapes and parades!! I recommend it 100%. Besides, the place explains you the historical facts of the peninsula.

A wonderful hike that takes one back to medieval times. The trail markers are a bit tricky, but the app helped withthat. we saw swans and many different tupes of bird life as well as cows and sheep. May was a beautiful time of year to see many wildflowers.

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.
