Grainne from Galway

I absolutely love these trails. They are full of wonderful trees and compacted paths making it easy to run walk cycle or push a buggy on. Wonderful day out for the family.

Cris from United States

We only did the west side of the loop and the loop around An tOileán Bán. The forest is amazing and filled with ferns, trees and fungi. The views of the lake are stunning and we even found a tiny frog near the shore. The limestone on the edges of the lake have nice formations, too. The hike itself is very easy, almost all level and all packed path. It took us about 3 hours to go out, walk the island , play a bit at the shore, and return. I would totally do the the other half if we had more time.

Mac Dara from Galway

Nice walk. Entrance is hard to find. Walk is signposted in part only, so you can easily miss out on the White Island section. Walk is in a Gaeltacht, so Irish version of the placename should be used.
