“Short but very pleasant way to spend half and hour in peaceful surroundings.”

Clara Bog Boardwalk
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Clara
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 July 2018

We had a lovely stroll in the early evening around the small circuit of the boardwalk. It seemed very small when I arrived but it is actually a lovely few minutes passed looking at the wild flowers, bees and surroundings of the bog. If you are in the locality, it is worth a stop. Something simple and natural for a change.

The boardwalk is probably only 1km long and does a loop out and over the bog and back. Parking available on the road at the entrance. Wasn’t busy (but dog foul in two places on this thin boardwalk, not blaming the dogs but come on people, pick it up). Beautiful views though you’d want the weather for it as zero shelter. Nice thing to do if in the area, could do one lap in 10-15 minutes.

We enjoyed touring the boardwalk around the bog, a great feat of workmanship in itself, and the nearby visitor centre in Clara town was very well presented (and free!). We chatted with a very knowledgeable guide in the visitor centre, and learned a great deal about bogs and peat as a fuel. This is well worth the short jaunt off the motorway.
