Some V Good Loops and variety of terrain - great views of the Golden Vale and Galtees - at times some forestry work can cause some muddy sections but overall well maintained and rural - bring supplies with you.

Just a fantastic place to walk, bike or run. Well worth getting out of the city to visit. You will be surrounded by green trees and incredible views through the leafy green walls as you go.

We did the Ballyorgan loop today and enjoyed magnificent views on a long (15km?) varied trek.

Cannot say enough... Limerick is shown at it's glorious Golden Vale best when walking in Ballyhoura. Good facilities and parking. A wide variety of walks, well mapped out and easy to follow.

Tough twenty Km walk starting in the sleepy village of Ballyorgan in the middle of the Ballyhouras with pleasant views, testing sections but very relaxing.Well signposted.
