Killamuck Looped Walk
Abbeyleix Laois Republic of Ireland
About this listing
A-B. Starting from the hotel, follow the purple and green arrows across the main road (N77) with care and join a concrete pathway. The green arrows are for the shorter Collin’s Bog Loop. The concrete path takes you back to the edge of the village where you turn left and follow a road for 300 metres before veering left. After 100 metres cross the road and join a church avenue through metal gates. At the end of the avenue turn left onto a forestry roadway.
B-C. Continue to follow the green and purple arrows along the forestry roadway which takes you into an area called Collin’s Bog. After 2 kilometres you exit from the bog and join a surfaced roadway where you turn left. Shortly afterwards, you join the busy N77 - turn right but after 100 metres, cross the road with care and join a green laneway which takes you into Killamuck Bog. After 50 metres reach a T-junction where the Collin’s Bog Loop turns left, but you turn right.
C-D. Follow the purple arrows as the loop follows bog paths for 1 kilometre before joining a surfaced roadway in the townland of Killamuck and turning left. After 300 metres turn left onto a sandy roadway which takes you to the two eyed bridge. Follow the path (to the right) onto the bridge and join an old railway line.
D-A. Continue to follow the old railway line for 2 kilometres to a point where the Collin’s Bog Loop joins from your left. Continue for another 500 metres to rejoin the N77 just 100 metres from the trailhead at the hotel.
