Description of Trail

This is a level section apart from a 1% ‘dip’ in the middle of the old Limerick to Tralee railway in West Limerick which has been redeveloped as a walking and cycling trail. It passes through pleasant pastoral farmland with views of the surrounding hills. There may be gates across the trail at which cyclists will have to dismount.
