Lovely trail, I personally tried to walk quite close to the river but if you do so be mindful cause it’s very slippery! If you follow the route, the trail is totally fine and safe. I found this trail very different than the Irish trails I’ve done so far, the atmosphere it’s absolutely stunning! 100% recommended.

It's always my favourite place and I always recommend to my friends as first destination to explore near Limerick. My 3 year old enjoys the little adventure walking next to the river.

one of my favourite places to go for an easy yet enjoyable peaceful walk. When the Rhodedendron are in bloom it's stunning. Ample parking, picnic tables, toilets & kids play are also.
