Routes

A-B. The loop starts from a metal swing gate at the left of the bridge over the Clare River. Turn left onto a narrow trail following the purple (and green) arrows – the green arrows are for the shorter Nature Loop. The loop gains ground away from the river and stays to ‘upper’ paths to pass a stone footbridge, before veering right and downhill to reach the riverbank at a wooden footbridge. The Nature Loop turns right here – you proceed straight.

B-C. The loop takes you uphill again and follows woodland paths through mature woodlands to reach another footbridge near the Clare Falls. This footbridge marks the farthest point of the loop. Cross the bridge (passing from County Tipperary into County Limerick!) and turn right.

C-D. Continue to follow the purple arrows along a sandy woodland path to reach a path joining from your right. Here you rejoin the Nature Loop (green arrows).

C-D. Continue to follow the sandy path along your return to the trailhead.

Directions to Trailhead

Start from the village of Murroe (Moroe) on the R506 between Limerick City and Cappamore. Follow the signs for Clare Glens which take you north out of the village. Follow this road for approximately 5km to reach the trailhead at a car parking area on your left. [Note: The trailhead is signposted from Murroe].
