Loop 2: Bunowen 7Km Loop

 

Start/Trailhead:

Louisburgh Town

Distance:

7km

Estimated Time:

45 minutes

Terrain:

This route offers incredible views over a short distance. Pleasant cycling awaits you but don’t be fooled by the short distance as there are a couple of quite steep hills on this loop. Fortunately these are only a short walk – if fitness is a concern – yet the panoramic views from the summit are worth it!

Traffic:

Generally light

Degree of Difficulty:

Suitable for people with medium levels of fitness although there are a couple ascents where walking the bike may be more suitable.

Loop 3: Derrymore 26Km

 

Start/Trailhead:

Louisburgh Town

Distance:

26km

Estimated Time:

2 Hours

Terrain:

This is a more challenging trip inland to the Sheeffry Hills. Traversing through isolated country on roads almost completely free of traffic the tranquility is numbing. One of the many highlights of this loop is the steep climb (or walk!) up to the summit of Derrymore. With two streams needing to be forded en-route this is an exciting loop with unbelievable panoramic views.

Traffic:

Extremely light

Degree of Difficulty:

Suitable for people with medium levels of fitness although there are a couple ascents where walking the bike may be more suitable.
