We enjoyed a beautiful, short walk in the forest to explore incredible ruins! Definitely worth the quick stop.

Chill & Reflect
Sep 2021
Lovely way to spent an hour or two to let go and just chill and reflect. We loved this little adventure. Turn right on the walk just follow the path. Slow it right down and allow yourself the time to let this special place hit the soul.

Madness personified

A most enjoyable loop walk takes in the Towers (grandiose gate lodges) and a remarkable bridge. We saw the area on a poor day, but the paths were manageable and the atmosphere overwhelmed us. The builder was a cruel landlord at the time of the Famine and the fate of his project seems most apt.

Worth it!

Absolutely worth the walk. Take your camera and a picnic and you can’t go wrong with this fairytale setting (despite it’s gruesome past!)

Like something out if a fairytale. Great place for a picnic, and the walk is short so easy for smallies. Great hidden gem.

Nice walk
Nov 2019
This is a great spot to take a walk, up through the woods down to the towers. Really enjoyed seeing it, especially since it was a dry day.

Hidden gem
Jul 2019
Nice quiet stroll through an enchanted space to visit the Ballysaggartmore Towers. If you go in the morning you will have the trail and ruins all to yourself. The story behind this structure is almost humorous as the owner was a man trying to please his wife by keeping up with the Jones' and in turn went broke before the home was even built. They only made it as far as the gatehouse. Worth the visit. It;t quite lovely.

Beautiful place

Really beautiful place to discover. You get there by walking through the forest, it's a loop with a sweet little castle.
