Route Description: The route takes you off the beaten track from Ballinruan over Corofin to Ennistymon, Moy, Miltown Malbay, Cooraclare to Killimer. The ferry will take you over the Shannon from Killimer to Tarbert(Euro 6). The road will take you along the Shannon and past Glin Castle after which you turn into the hills of West Limerick. The road over Knockanimpaha reaches a height of over 300m, has brilliant views and a fantastic long descent. After these hills, the Limerick Greenway might be a welcome break. Before crossing the Maigue river you pass through the village of Adare, then on to Limerick City, Killaloe-Ballina in search for the Graves of the Leinstermen. You will be going around Lough Derg through Puckaun, Terryglass and Portumna, upto Woodford and past Lough Atorick, on the hill. There is a fabulous descent after reaching the top with beautiful views of Lough Graney. After passing Caher the last climb through Killanena starts and through the forestry back to the village of Ballinruan.
