I had the pleasure of visiting this wonderful trail last August with my two daughters, my wife and myself. Its a nice walk and an easy way to see Irish nature and very accessible for all age groups. It was a lovely day and we had time to inspect all the plants and wildlife that occupy this space and were surprised by the diversity! Well-done to all those that set up this project we will be back again this year from Vienna where they also have projects not so dissimilar to this one but very different landscapes. Thanks from a very happy James Kinsella

We discovered this walk last week by accident when doing a walk round Annestown and up to Dunhill Castle. What a treat - this is a walk for anyone who can put one foot past the other - it has lovely views of the surrounding countryside and lots of things to amuse children. We were intrigued by the predator fences and the amphitheatre.



Coincidentally we later visited the Lafcadio Hearn Garden in Tramore where we discovered that a lot of the stones had been donated by the Dunhill farmers - no doubt when they were making the lovely path.
