Great easy walk.

The very first trail we have done on alltrails.com We did not follow the route exactly as on the map here, but it was enough as for the first time hiking. Amazing views and a very difficult way down by stairs. It was a challenge for all family. As realised later - we have chosen a red trail. Such as enthusiastic newbies!! No regrets of choosing this trail anyway!

Beautiful and easy walk. I came here during a day tour from Dublin. The scenery in the upper lake is very beautiful.

Good trail. Looks like they recently did some work to improve the trail by adding proper steps and such. There was some construction after the first beach so we turned around, but still a lovely walk. Wasn’t difficult at all and a nice pair of runners or walking shoes would be fine to do this hike.

lovely walk.

Some of the most beautiful views in Ireland at the Trig Point on top. Views of the Atlantic, Bantry Bay and Dunmannus Bay from one spot. A fallen watch tower, WW II lookout bunker and the beautiful lighthouse all add to making this a stunning hike.

nice easy walk with some nice views..

Nice little walk. Family friendly

Excellent trail for the whole family. May be a little long for children or elderly but the trail can be started at the upper reservoir instead if needed. Good roads, rocky at times and slight uphills but it’s worth it for the beautiful sights and bright nature. Occasional sights of sheep and cows and old architecture like the bridge and lake houses make the walk much more entertaining. On sunny and dry days there’s lovely grassy shores to have picnics on. I’d highly recommend this trail for a long walk away from the busy bustle of the city!

Rocky. Boots needed. Trail well marked out. Easy to follow.

A lovely walk. Can be a bit steep and a scramble at times. Some rocks can be slippery so you'd need to be careful around the water.

Lovely walk along the river

This is Laois not Offaly.

nice back and fourth easy jog

bit muddy despite being a dry day. apart from that, it was a decent path for a quick trip from the city. well signposted and the horses at the halfway point of the blue trail was such a treat!

Tried this trail on Sunday day morning as a familyof three. We liked the trail in general but because of dirt and moisture on the tracks, we only managed a part of the loop of around 4km. We definitely will be back in dryer weather.

wouldn't recommend doing the out and back piece as it is a little pointless the loop is really nice wear boots it does get wet though
