Fergus from Cavan

A great walk and so full of history. Well laid out and well signposted. The boards with QR codes are a great bonus. A huge thank you to the landowners for allowing access.

Beate from Germany

Highly recommendable.

Very well signposted, you can't get lost.

On signboards in good condition with scan apps that lead to well understandable youtube lectures, very well explained and interesting historical sites.

Various landscape: meadows with sheep and cows, lakeshore, wood with partly very old and big trees. We walked the longer warren loop which was a bit more than 6 km on our GPS.

In cloudy weather it was not too boggy, but it's good to wear hiking boots for the paths are not always even.

Undertook this trail in glorious sunshine this afternoon with my daughters (7 & 4) and really enjoyed it. Very well signposted trail with many points of interest along the route which are well explained by informative signs. Lots of stiles so you need to be ablebodied but they are fun. The trail encompasses rural farmland, lakeside walks and forest paths. Highly recommend!

Gaynor from Roscommon

Excellent trail that is great for all the family. Wear good walking shoes though!!!

I really love this hike as a continuation to the Castle Loop. The trail starts from the parking gate, crosses some meadows with sheep and cows and calves and lambs. The trail then winds up the outside of the peninsula past the castle and then loops around the point. Once you're past the castle betrayal is under the dense shade of the trees and the understory was covered in a beautiful blanket of purple, blue and white flowers. Once it loops back around the point it comes back to the Norman Eric Church which makes for a good photo opportunity and then follows along the bay back to the car. Even doing both trails and taking ample opportunities to stop and take pictures it only took us two hours. Yes there is mud. Make sure to bring another pair of shoes.

Another thing is that this made a great pit stop on our journey from Dublin to Galway.

I did this walk this morning....there are two loops, the Castle Loop 3km and the Warren Loop 10km. All I can say is that it was fabulous. The weather wasn't ideal but I had rain gear and it did the trick. I had my dog with me on a leash which I didn't think would be a problem but on finishing I noticed a sign saying no dogs which is odd because in other posts I read prior to doing the walk it asked to watch your dog with livestock.

One other thing I had intended doing the 10k but somehow around the safe inlet I took the shorter route and was back before I knew it. The scenery is fabulous along Lough Ree, bluebell wood is just enchanting so if you're in the area do check this walk out.....but mind the animals (if present as they were today) in the fields which you will have to cross....Enjoy & be sure to bring your mobile phone.
