Tips

A fine walk through forest and over river in the heart of Ireland. The Dunmore Loop is a shorter version of the Leafy Loop walk which follow the same route until a divergence just before Clonageera House on the other side of the village. You get to see many of the fine sights along the way without the trek up the heartbreaking stretch known as the Ballagh! This walk is well signposted with a variety of posts along the way. Bright green arrows indicate the signs for the Dunmore Loop and have been placed with thought and care by people who are keen to keep you on the right path at all times.

A sturdy pair of boots and rain gear are recommended for this walk which is on grass and soft ground a lot of the time. Please observe the country code of closing all gates and taking your litter home. Bring some water to keep you healthy and binoculars to enjoy the abundance of fauna along the way. Unfortunately, dogs are forbidden on the Dunmore looped walk. Be aware of catching Lyme Disease on the walk from ticks.

Parts of the Lifey ( purple) walk were flooded and there was no way to avoid them.. thankfully, it was the last km into the walk.. Despite wet feet, the walk along the river was great. Very well signposted..
