Robert Dempsey from Dublin

Completed Kilashee to Clondra return on foot Sat 1st Aug. This is a beautiful trail with a good surface for walking or cycling. Stopped for lunch in Clondra pub. Round trip was ~ 16km. Trail was quiet, landscape changes from green countryside to wilder bog environment on approach to Shannon. Highly recommended.

Nicola from Roscommon

Killashee to Keenagh is a lovely pretty cycle with lovely wild life, nature & gentle water ways to look at. It’s a lovely Sunday cycle with family

Anne from Dublin

Great trail - very quiet. One crossing on main road but good visibility in both directions.

Park at the GAA club in Longford and cycle down to the main trail and head west to Clondara.

Seems like it is not used much so feels like you are discovering it for the first time. Good surface for cycling. Very enjoyable day out
