The walk starts from near the town centre of Fermoy where the main road crosses the Blackwater. It then passes through very pleasant wooded countryside, in part alongside the riverside.

I found this walk fascinating, it becomes enclosed by fences for the second half of the walk! I really enjoyed it, I wouldn't like to do it alone or in the evening/when it's dark though.The scenery is beautiful .

When I was a child it seemed like such a long walk, but it actually isn't and the scenery is stunning down there, between the little well, the river and the fields, well worth going down memory lane.

Pleasant walk that starts along the river bank and continues through woods. The walk can be extended by including the forest park after you hit the road.

Following heavy winter rains the Blackwater was in fine flood so this riverside stroll was a bit damp and muddy but I had the place all to myself. A great ramble in any weather and especially so today. You used to be able to walk...More
