Rose from Cork

Did this walking trail on Sunday 10th June. Great loop and views. Really enjoyed it. In one place the purple arrows were pointing in 2 directions. Picked the right one and did the whole loop in about 3 hrs. Very muddy and river flowing through path in one or two places.

Pat from Cork

All geared up for a great walk. The 1st few km was great. Then came to one of those 50 50 moments where there was no marker or I could not see it? Took the wrong way and a 4 hour walk became a 1 hour walk. Looks a great place and would love to do again but
