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.

What a beautiful place to take our family, little Pug and the kids grandparents for an evening stroll. Just outside Clara on the road to Rahan it is easy to find and an easy walk for young and old alike. The kids loved peering into the bog pools looking for frogs. It is so tranquil surrounded by miles of pretty heathered bog and heady scented yellow gorse bushes but the majestic sunset over the bog was the most magical sight of all!this is a lovely quiet spot for a walk with a nice boardwalk suspended over the bog and is quite an experience! We will definitely make this a regular visit!
