Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have walked the Glenbarrow route twice before but today took the longer red route - it was only breathtaking! The peaceful scenery is a hidden gem in the midlands. Much of the walk is on a boardwalk which really adds to the experience, following the Barrow upstream aswell as meandering out onto the hillside with a panoramic view of the midlands. To top the day off a deer crossed our path as we neared the finish.
Wear good walking shoes and bring some water & snacks (the blackberries are lovely for dessert if the time of year is right😊)

This is a lovely walk. Very deserted. I didn't come across another single person. Sections are extremely muddy ( hey it's winter) so good waterproof hiking boots are an essential. I was slightly alarmed to come across cattle loose at one stage. The Riverside walk section is very pretty. New handrail being installed, appreciated it in the slippery conditions. I'm a weekend stroller and walk took me 3.5 hrs. Nice walk, I'll do it again in summer and hope for views. A lot of low cloud cover today. Came across cows again as final stretch takes you by farmyard (city girl....kinda terrified).

Climbed The Cut, Wolftrap and Glendine with road bike - really tough going especially Glendine. You will feel a sense of achievement when completed!

Wonderful scenery and sense of remoteness in this wilderness. We walked the Slieve Bloom Way over 2 days and stayed at Giltraps pods in Kinnitty which worked out well. For a B&B option Ardmore House is a hidden gem just up the road.

Too rocky. Too many tree stumps. Too much tree coverage (a.k.a no sun), walkways very easily allow for boyfriends to rugby tackle you to ground. Nice brownies in cafe though.

Did a 7.5km walk through Monicknew forest which is part of the Slieve Bloom mountains. Breath taking scenery, amazing views, out and about in nature a perfect day.

A bit high of a place this. Can’t understand why there is no lift. This mountain needs to be brought up to date badly. Screw Flanders

This drive is easily missed by following Google maps. Well worth the detour to experience the great views through the mountains. Spectacular view from the top down the valley.
Lots of side roads ,walks and cycle routes through the forest and by the rivers, streams and waterfalls.
