Commons Woodland Trail


This is a beautiful walk through a natural woodland along the banks of the river Shannon. The walk is very easy. The trails narrows at the furthermost stretches of the loop  – it might not be possible for example to push a buggy at this point.  The longest trail is around 4.5km and takes about an hour to complete.  It goes through the disused Lime Quarry, meanders past lake callows and into wooded areas around the Lake Shore.  The nearby playground and facilities in Lanesborough make this a great day out for a family.  During the summer pick up a coffee or treat at Distillery Yard pop up coffee at the entrance to the car park trail.
