Being a canal bank walk, the important feature of this route is that it is flat!!! Ideal for the beginner to waymarked walking, the route passes through a range of small towns and villages with all the necessary amenities, and ideal for drop-off and pick-up points.This allows the walker to join the walk at a variety of different places along the walk. Its length also offers a challenge to the more established walker.

An ideal trail for beginners or those walkers looking for a more gentle trail on their vacation in Ireland.
