      Ireland's largest trail network with over 100km of trails! Showers, toilets, bike wash, bit of grub and hot drinks available at the trail head! Bring €5 in coins for the car park though.

      The trail system presents riders with a combination of narrow singletrack and boardwalk sections and also has sections
      of forest road climbs over short and long distances. The trails are laid out in 5 loops and each loop leads onto the next. The loops are waymarked in one direction – just pick the colour of the loop you want to ride and follow the arrows. There is more information out on the trails at the start of each loop.

      Please ensure you are equipped fully to undertake this adventure sport and respect other trial users at all times. The
      trail can be quite exposed on the upper slopes and can be very windy in poor weather – dress accordingly.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      The trails are located in the Ballyhoura Mountains which cover east Limerick and north Cork. The trailhead is located 2 kms south of Ardpatrick village in Co. Limerick off the R512 road (OSI Discovery Series Sheet 73).
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
