Patricia from Kildare

What a discovery. Loved it. There is signage. Also a map at the start you can photo.

John McGovern from Leitrim

This is a gorgeous path suitable for an easy walk with the family followed by a vigorous trail run.

John from Mayo

Was looking forward to visiting this trail but no signposts and the locals including some at the castle had no clue about it
