Really enjoyed Glanbarrow Waterfall walk, totally unspoilt, with a little help from a boardwalk to make it a bit easier. You do need proper hiking boots and a reasonable level of fitness to attempt this - quite steep in places, leave small dogs/children at home!...More

We drove from Kinnity to Mountrath today, over the Slieve Bloom Mountains, somewhat foolhardy because we encountered serious icy and snowy roads which we should have had the cop on to expect. However, we got through on a wing and a prayer thanks to the...More

Fantastic! Waterfalls, old ruins, 2 beautifully different lakes, sheep, goats, deer and a very well maintained track! It rained but that didn’t spoil the views through the magnificent valleys. Well worth going that much further to walk right around both lakes!

Have visited the Slieve Bloom Mountains a few times this year. It is really beautiful. The scenery is so beautiful and the boardwalk is really worth walking.

As a regular hillwalker I didn’t find the looped walks particularly challenging but the terrain was interesting as the flora and fauna were interesting as was the combined woodland walks , river and more open air board walks.

Glenbarrow waterfall and the Glenbarrow loop are simply beautiful. The drive to Glenbarrow is along country roads lined by colourful natural gorse with great views of the countryside. The walk itself is an interesting walk beginning in woodland with the river barrow alongside. You will...More
