Explore the magic of this enchanted peninsula by the banks of the Shannon. Rindoon, or Rinn Duin in Irish, is where you can follow one of the the most enchanting looped walks in Ireland, past a castle, a church, a windmill, a hospital, bee boles, new born lambs as well as the Shannon lapping against the shore. With a hidden bluebell wood further on, numerous fairy trees, this is a very special area where heritage, nature and magic blend in to an unforgettable day's walking.

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.
