Catty from Ireland

Walk was along a dangerous country road then a detour along a lane and then walk along a side of a field railed off by wire then back onto the dangerous country road. Avoid at all costs. No views only bungalows!

Felix from Kilkenny

Nothing special, but a lovely detour all the same. Nice and short on its own or adjunct to the Nore Walk. Although getting to walk through fields is a treat, the hum of the motorway in the background kinda breaks the bucolic spell. Shame dogs not allowed too, but understandable since there’s livestock on the trail.

Lee from United Kingdom

I wasn't a huge fan of this trail although I wasn't expecting much to be begin with. About half of the walk is road walking and for pretty much the whole walk you can hear and see the M9 motorway which spoils the tranquility. The trail signs were quite good and informative. This walk is possible to do for people without a car. I got the bus from Kilkenny and then caught the same bus back just over 3 hours later.
