Went out to do this trail but unfortunately there was a sign saying that the trail is now closed and strictly no trespassing. Very disappointed and a complete waste of time. Somewhere on the site to say the trail was closed would have been helpful.

Randonnée tout à fait accessible pour des familles. Le début du parcours est bien balisé, vous avez des passages pour passer les clôtures. Cependant arrivé dans la petit forêt après le château, plus de valise et vous vous retrouvez vite à sortir du chemin. Cependant, il faut juste suivre sur votre application le point et cela se fait très très bien. Jolies paysages au passage, mêlant grande plaines, forêt, et lac.

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.

First to Review

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.
