Nice walks, lovely scenery, water falls, established paths and all complimented with the practicality of a decent car park with simple facilities. You could spend an awful lot of time in this area and get nothing but satisfaction from doing so. A must do day.

Great trail! I loved this walking trail in Ballyhoura, definitely right up my alley as I am a very outdoorsy person! It was lovely to immerse myself outdoors for the day as the weekend was sunny and the environment was like no other! Definitely recommend!

Sorry for delay getting back to you. Any of the walks that I did were not suitable for buggys. There is a lovely walk in Croom. RIVERSIDE walk with cafe.
