“Riverside Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

This is a lovely walking area along the banks of the river blackwater . At the end of the walk one can continue along the river bank for about 2 miles until you come to the woods. On a nice day bring a picnic sit by the river and enjoy nature, watch the birds and the fish jumping. At the moment the walkway is closed due to work ongoing to fit the flood barrier. Once this is complete the walk along the river will be reopened to the public once more.

“Lovely stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Proceeding up-river (away from the bridge), you will pass the Fermoy Youth Centre on your left. The Youth Centre used to house a ballroom and cinema but, in recent years, has become a sporting venue and infrequently used theatre and concert venue.

Passing by the Youth Centre, the next public premises is the Fermoy Rowing Club, built in 1984 and opened that same year - the Rowing Club's centenary year.

Proceeding to the right of the Rowing Club, you will enter the beautiful Barnane Walk, which parallels the River Blackwater and is shaded by trees. Midway along Barnane, you will pass St Bernard's Well on your left. At one time, this well was the source of water for many of the people living in Fermoy.

Continue to the stile at the end of Barnane. Continuing over the stile will take you onto the trail for the Corrin Loop. For the purposes of the Fermoy Town Walk, however, retrace your steps along Barnane and, at the Rowing Club, turn right up Waterloo Lane and exit on McCurtain Street.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

No visit to Fermoy is complete without a walk down Barnane. It's the best riverside walk on the Blackwater and one of the few open to the public. It's well maintained, quiet (except at weekends) and a good place to feed the ducks (bring the kids).
