This is definitely worth doing but not with small children or buggies as some areas are very uneven. It takes you through fields around Ballyvaughan . The best part of the walk is when you reach ailwee caves, dont turn right even if your tired,...More

This is a walk you'll need boots for but its mostly flat, if uneven. If its raining you'll need decent rain gear as its nearly 10kms.... It starts off via the football pitch and school at the back of the village and goes through a...More
