This loop is waymarked with standing stone slabs and passes through an old celtic farm, touching on the shores of Lough Avalla. On sandy roadways, farm tracks, laneways and open Burren ground it includes an ascent to a stone cairn, a line of high ‘cliffs’ and a mix of stone fields, scrub and pastures with great views, particularly of Mullaghmore.

The landowner asks for your co-operation that no dogs are brought along the Lough Avalla Farm loop.

Nancy from Clare

This is a lovely trail that is not too difficult, no big climbs but need to take care underfoot on descent. Fab views, particularly of Mullaghmore
