HikingGreat!

Probably my favorite day in Ireland! We started by taking a boat from Ross Castle to Lord Brandon’s Cottage. We then hiked all the way to Kate Kearny’s. It was an absolutely amazing day, the views and sounds of nature were wonderful. Traveled Sept 2019.

Nice walk. Near the main road though. All tarred, wheelchair and dog friendly.

Gorgeous scenery!!! Fully paved so trainers more appropriate than hiking boots.

This is a really nice route close to the city but away from the chaos. This is our Saturday morning long run of choice.

Road bikingGreat!

This is a great experience! We cycled from the hotel to Ross Castle, we took the boat (with the bikes) at 10:30, you can get the tickets online or in place, we pay €20. The trip is around 90 minutes. The boat left us in Lord Brandon's Cottage from where you can go back by to Killarney by cycling or walking. The view is beautiful, be ready to climb a very tough hill but after that it's easy and enjoyable.

Bike touring

I completed the entire Royal Canal Way as a cycle with a friend in July of 2020. Took the train from Dublin to Longford station and cycled to Cloondara to begin right from the Shannon. It's only 8km directly along the N5 from the station to the start of the canal. We decided to split it over two days, overnighting in Mullingar, county Westmeath. Day one we covered 73 km (including the 8km from the station to Cloondara). The path for the entire duration was either well tarmacked towpath or easy pedalling gravel (not slippy in the slightest) and there were no sections we needed to divert from. We encountered very few people making for very tranquil straightforward cycling. There were plenty of B&B options to stay in at Mullingar and infinite takeaways for dinner. Day two we covered 90km to get the whole way to Spencer Dock at the Liffey. The path was much busier between Mullingar and Dublin, particularly so when reaching Ashtown. There was one section we deviated from the canal path as it was becoming uncomfortably narrow and the track was mud, grass and far too many rocks and tree roots for my friend's suspension-less bike!!! This was from beyond Leixlip up as far as Blanchardstown. Manageable with shocks up as far as Clonsilla. All in all, very straightforward, very doable on our two hybrid bikes, mountain bikes unnecessary. The route is well developed with little yellow walking men and cycle signs for following the entire way from Cloondara to Spencer Dock. I'd recommend just going for it if you're thinking of it, very enjoyable!!

This has to be one of the most beautiful walks in the world! So fortunate to have had the chance to do this. A must do if you are around The Ring of Kerry area.

You walk on a wide paved road all the time. Beautiful scenery but not my kind of hiking. I recommend you drive this one and hike some other trail. of which the Ring of Kerry has no shortage.

it is very nice and scenic and it's all paved. We hiked in a very rainy and windy day in last day of September, so pretty much it was only us for most of the time and only few horse carriage in the morning. ocasional cars were passing by. I can see it can get very busy in nice weather days.

Wonderful hike. It is on the road so be mindful of carriages and cars driving around. Lots of sheep roaming the streets too. Its one of my favorite hikes in Ireland so beautiful!

Amazing views!! Very windy but we were lucky the clouds lifted and the rain stopped as we started hiking from Lord Brandon’s. Steep uphill at first but a nice descent into the valley when you reach the highest point. Lots of horses, carriages, and sheep on the road! :)

One of the nicest walking surfaces have used. Road is wide enough to be out of way of cars and horses. Stunning scenery

Road biking

Cycled on a gravel bike from The convention centre Dublin to Maynooth. Nice path as far as Ashton and then the real fun starts for a few km. proper forest like tracks with roots and rocks in the muck. Once past Deep Sinking it is gravel and grass.

A great walk which you can basically start (and finish) in Cork City centre. The walk is pretty much totally flat so it’s not all challenging although the distance is great enough that you’ll probably be tired by the end of it. It’s well paved asphalt all the way so very suitable for bikes, scooters, buggies and whatnot. Nice views of the harbour and the river along the way. Plenty of benches and grassy banks to take a break on. Stop for lunch and a beer in Blackrock. Highly recommended.

Very nice city walk, giving you the possibility to be in the city but at the same time connect with nature and escape from the hustle. You can walk, ride your bike or go on your rollerblades and enjoy the good pavement conditions in n the walk. I will try it again definitely with my scooter .
