Park your car outside the school and take the sign post for Treanamanagh. This trail will take you through some beautiful scenery so bring a camera. There are some spectacular views of mountains and lakes.

A really nice hike that is mixed between Road & Track. As a family we have done this dozens of times. Plenty of rest/picnic areas. Now it’s tough in parts but all in all a nice few hours out. Beautiful scenery of Dingle, Rossbeigh, Glenbeigh & Glencar. Aged 6plus for tired legs. Not a busy route either! Enjoy this
