If you are familiar or not with mountain biking and want to place to go, this is it! The trails are all looped rides and well maintained and marked, don't have a bike?

Went here with some friends. The trails are great and the skills loops well worth doing. I though a bit much fire road but the single track was very well thought out and flowed perfectly Will definitely be back

All trails start at the same place and finish at the same place, with the longer trails spurring off the other shorter ones. You should basically choose which length to do before setting out, as you would unlikely want to return to the... More

My son and I went on the 6k trail. We brought our own bikes but they were also available to hire for €35 I think. Great facilities here. You pay €5 on the way in so have change ready and everything after that is free. There are picnic areas so bring one with you to help you recover afterwards. This... More
