Canon Sheehan Loop

A journey through mythic, Hobbit-esque landscapes, the Canon Sheehan Loop is a verdant green trail on the border with Cork. Wander impish woodlands in a haze of wildflowers and natural forestry. Stop to admire the "mass rock" - used as an altar for outdoor Catholic masses in the 17th century. The trail is 7.6km and suitable for all skill levels.
