The Slieve Bloom Way

Pack your rucksack and take on the Slieve Bloom Way.

If you fancy getting off the beaten track for 3 days on a mountain trekking adventure, then pack your rucksack and take on the Slieve Bloom Way.  Covering a distance of 60 km, your daily hikes will consist of 4 to 5 hour walks across a mixture of terrain; from gorse-covered flatlands to relatively gentle inclines. The Slieve Bloom Way is a circular walking trail which stretches across the Slieve Bloom Mountains Environment Park - an area of undiscovered environmental beauty, boasting a fabulous array of flora and fauna, remarkable deep glens, rock outcrops and waterfalls, Truly ‘a walk on the wild side’ along forest paths to the heart of Ireland’s midlands.
