If you are the outdoor adventure type, or perhaps want to take your family out on a cycle trip through woodland and over hills, then the mountain bike trails at Ballyhoura Mountain are worth considering. Bike rental is available on site, as are toilet and shower facilities.
There are multiple trails available on the mountains, organised as a series of connected one-way (for safety) colour-coded loops, so you can do just one loop, or tackle more depending on your desire and supply of adrenaline. The shortest is 6km in length and the longest is 50km.
The system of trails was designed by one of the world leaders in the mountain biking sport and has plenty of ups and downs, tight turns, challenging rocky sections, and great variety.
The Ballyhoura mountain bike trails are located on the Ballyhoura mountains on the Limerick/Cork county border, and the starting point is located near Ardpatrick, 43km south of Limerick city. Click the map pin icon to view the location on a map.
